Payment 360

Introduction to Payment

About Course

Payments 360 is our flagship course, it provides a detailed and extensive foundation into the world of payments and fintech. We break down concepts, technologies, processes, regulations, systems, and principles that make the Payments & Fintech ecosystem work.
This course was developed out of our understanding of the growth trajectory of the fintech industry over the last 5 years. For instance, in 2020 alone, 31% of all the startup funding in Africa went to companies in the Fintech space and the same trend has continued into 2021. This trend does not look like it will be slowing down anytime soon — in Africa and the rest of the world, and with this course, we help participants understand the fundamentals of the industry.
