ACOI and PAT Fintech are delighted to partner with KPMG to launch the ‘KPMG Fintech Risk and Compliance Scholarship’. KPMG will award a full tuition fee scholarship for the 2021/22 academic year for the Diploma in Fintech Risk and Compliance programme, which commences in September.
The Diploma in Fintech Risk and Compliance, a level 7 programme on the NFQ provided by Professional Accountancy Training and awarded by TU Dublin delivers the core knowledge, skills, and competencies that professionals require to work in both a Fintech environment, and an increasingly digitised compliance function.
The Scholarship promotes the importance of further education and recognition of professional certification in the advancement of an individual in their career in Compliance. The Scholarship is open to ACOI members and non-members who hold at least a Higher Certificate (NFQ Level 6) with a background in business, finance, law, or technology.
To apply for the KPMG Fintech Risk and Compliance Scholarship, submit a 3-minute video outlining what you consider to be the future of the compliance professional’s role in the financial services industry. Please reference the technological and regulatory factors, and the impact of Fintech operating models, in the strategic evolution of the risk and compliance function.
The closing date for entries is Sunday 5th of September 2021.
