The MSc Finance, Technology and Policy is supported by an external industry advisory panel, with members drawn from financial services and technology firms as well as regulatory agencies.

The panel meets twice a year in order to take an active look at the programme (content, project outcomes, student feedback, career destinations) with a view to providing strategic advice on improving it.
