Courses, short courses and specializations of different kinds are part of the new educational offer to train workers in the digital finance industry (fintech), a sector whose demand for work grows at a rate of 40% per year since 2017 and which, it is expected, will employ more than 20,000 Argentines by the end of the year.
That is why both the academic sector and industry are working to create an educational offer that will form people who want to enter an area that is a net exporter of services and that has a strong component of technological innovation and value creation.
“We are trying to generate more and more a labor demand that is prepared this type of work and that can continue to feed the industry and thus have a model ecosystem in Latin America,” Matías Friedberg, co-founder of Ixpandit and director of the Argentine Chamber of Fintech (CAF), told Telam.
“We try to mix the theoretical part of universities with the practices provided by companies and, thus, offer training in technical and management aspects, so that more and more people prepare to work in a fintech”, explained Friedberg.
