    Thank you for including FinTech Ethics & Risks on the list! Our course has had an immense success to date (it just moved over to self-paced mode yesterday).

    We have learners from over 150 countries, the course has amassed over 4,000 discussion comments, and a testament to the success of the course is our record-high retention rates where essentially everyone that begins the course also finishes it!
