Financial technology (fintech) is a rapidly evolving industry. As in any high-growth industry, a significant challenge is the acquisition of top talent, especially university graduates. However, most experts in this field have not been formally trained in an academic environment. Degrees in Fintech did not exist until recently. In this study, we developed a fintech domain knowledge framework for digital payments to facilitate the creation of higher education programs that address the gap in the fintech talent pool. We posited that the proposed domain knowledge provides opportunities for higher education to initiate degree programs. In this study, we review the fintech space and focus the proposed framework on the largest fintech cluster—digital payments.
