Your digital disruption case study

Our online events are designed to guide you through a case study where you'll be investigating the world of financial technology.

You’ll analyse and determine whether Australian Finance technology start-up Moula can be legitimately regarded as a disruptive threat to the banking industry incumbents such as ANZ and NAB. This investigation is especially relevant in the context of the Hayne Royal Inquiry in the Australian banking sector.

These four modules are designed to set you up for success to study effectively in an online environment. You’ll be given a series of tasks to complete both independently and as a group, while being guided by your facilitator in your weekly webinars.

Event program

When you join us for these digital disruption modules, you'll be required to participate in all four modules.

Online modules will be delivered in Australian Eastern Standard Time.

When you register, you'll be emailed the Zoom link to participate.
