Decentralized finance & crypto assets
The latest issue of the C4DT Observer was published following the Finance and Technology conference 2023 on Decentralized Finance (DeFi) in April 2023, with as main theme "Decentralized finance & crypto assets".
The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL has been created to foster research in finance and to develop a strong offering of programs in finance and financial engineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The focus is on the areas within finance that have a natural interaction with mathematics, statistics, engineering, and science, namely, mathematical finance, financial econometrics, and entrepreneurial finance.
The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL participates in serveral teaching programs:
- The Master in Financial Engineering at EPFL, which is a highly selective 2-year master program
- The Minor in Financial Engineering
- The Doctoral Program in Finance, which is organized jointly with the Swiss Finance Institute and the Universities of Geneva and Lausanne.
- Executive Education: A short course in FinTech
The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL benefits from the institutional support of the Swiss Finance Institute, a private foundation created in 2006 by Switzerland’s banking and finance community in cooperation with leading Swiss universities, and from Swissquote, who endowed the Swissquote Chair in Quantitative Finance.
