美国:乔治亚州通过Fintech学院打造人才输送渠道

包含70家乔治亚州交易同盟公司(其中60%总部在该州)的美国交易处理商联盟(后文简称ATPC)呼吁大学支持打造Fintech课程,如今这一呼吁在九月得到实现,希望借此为乔治亚州快速发展的金融科技产业提供人才输送。

ATPC的组成会员中有不少金融科技产品或资源服务公司,它们对乔治亚州大学系统(后文简称USG)金融科技项目和2014年早些时候成立的一所Fintech学院的建立起到了巨大的推动作用。

ATPC执行董事H.West Richards为公司以及州政府就该项目的合理性提供咨询。他坚持认为,人才培养对该州金融科技产业持续发展、乃至全国的人才需求都至关重要。此外,该州的公司间公私合作项目可以影响课程设置,并让乔治亚州有机会成为全球Fintech的人才聚集地。

Richards说,ATPC会员组织在乔治亚雇佣了4万多名员工,世界范围内另有1万零5千名员工。他认为这些会员机构也可以自己开发课程和培训项目,但ATPC希望将这些课程与项目都涵盖在一个统一的框架内。现在,这一金融科技课程表项目的累计投资规模为1800万美元,而Fintech产业每年为乔治亚州贡献720亿美元。

对乔治亚州来说,Fintech领域的持续发展意味着必须满足对于人才的需求。截至2020年,州项目将提供5000个新职位,其中95%都需要行业相关的实用知识。

乔治亚Fintech学院共覆盖26所大学,提供学位课程、高管及继续教育课程、学徒课程和实习课程,为学生进入Fintech行业或换工作打下实用基础。

课程表是与Fintech公司共同打造,为的是解决他们最基本的需求。所有USG机构都可以通过数字教育或者基于云的人才培养项目在线学习课程并获得学位。

USG说,项目所发证书就是USG管理委员会认证的学院教育证书,证明证书获得者拥有必要知识和应用经验。这一新的学位与系统中现有的本科、硕士和博士学位并存。新学位要求18小时的专业课时(包括12小时的高级学习和6小时的实践如实习)和42小时的通识教育课时。

乔治亚Fintech学院提供面向全州的网上课程,同时还有两个实体上课地点,地点都在乔治亚州立大学罗宾逊商学院。同时,这里也是学院执行办公室所在地,公司可以联系这里寻求Fintech人才。乔治亚州巴克海德执行中心提供研究生课程、高管和继续教育以及训练营项目。

The American Transaction Processors Coalition, consisting of 70 companies in Georgia’s Transaction Alley, including 60% calling the Peach State home, saw its advocacy for a university-sponsored fintech curriculum realized in September.

The ATPC, consisting of fintech companies that develop the products and provide resources supporting much of the financial service industry’s technology needs, played a critical role in organizing support for the establishment of a University System of Georgia sponsored financial technology program and the establishment of a FinTech Academy beginning in early 2014.

Chancellor Steve Wrigley and the Board of Regents of the USG announced the formation of the academy, a statewide initiative to create a talent pipeline for Georgia’s fast-growing financial technology business sector.

H. West Richards, executive director of ATPC and adviser to both employers and the state on the merits of such a program, maintained talent development is critical to the continued growth of the financial technology industry in Georgia, and help meet the significant demand for fintech-educated employees, both in the state and nationally. Additionally, the public/private partnership between employers at the state will influence curriculum; and this initiative could put Georgia at the forefront as a global talent magnet.

Richards said having these ATPC organizations, which employ more than 40,000 people in Georgia and an additional 105,000 people around the world, could do their own thing trying to produce courses and training programs, but the alliance supported putting it under one roof. Right now, it’s an $18 million project. In Georgia, fintech generates more than $72 billion in annual revenue.

The initiative is certain to capture the attention of financial and government leaders around the globe Richards held. “This is an American initiative but It has the potential to be a big deal.”

West indicated the fintech academy resulted from years of thoughtful research and analysis among the university system, fintech employers and other key partners. “As it grows and achieves some success there are other industry segments that could go this route such as cybersecurity and logistics.”

For Georgia, sustained growth and development of the fintech segment hinges on meeting a rising need for talent, which the state projects includes 5,000 new hires by 2020, which must include 95% with industry-specific practical knowledge.

“When we released the College 2025 report, we meant what we said about preparing graduates with innovative approaches,” Wrigley said in a statement. “The Georgia FinTech Academy is an innovative response to the call from the fintech industry for more and better workers. With the strength of all 26 institutions of the University System of Georgia behind it, I believe fintech will see immediate results from this new program.”

The Georgia FinTech Academy will prepare enrollees to enter fintech or shift from another job through degree programs, executive and continuing education, and apprenticeships and internships supplying the practical experience required by employers.

The curriculum developed in conjunction with fintech employers to tackled their primary needs, will cover the entire USG with virtual access to online courses and degrees through e-learning and cloud-based talent development programs.

According to the USG, the nexus degree is a college education credential approved by the Board of Regents that combines essential knowledge with applied experience. The new degree expands on the university system’s existing portfolio of associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. It will include 18 hours of coursework – 12 hours in upper-division level courses and six hours in experiential learning such as internships or in-the-field experiences – in addition to 42 hours of general education coursework.

In addition to offering courses virtually across the entire state, the Georgia FinTech Academy will have two physical locations, both located in Atlanta at Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business. The downtown location will also house the academy’s executive offices and serve as the single point of contact for employers seeking to hire fintech-ready talent. Georgia State’s Buckhead Executive Center will offer graduate programs, executive and continuing education, as well as boot camps.
