PayPal joins launch of FinTech educational program in Singapore

PayPal, a leading brand in the digital economy, has announced its plan to join the launch of a FinTech educational program in Singapore, alongside Singapore’s five polytechnic institutes and the Institute of Technical Education. Specifically, PayPal will work with the institutions to enhance their IT curriculum by integrating proprietary materials and case studies into four modules that provide students with a foundation in e-payments (‘Payments 101’, ‘PayPal Solutions’, ‘API Integration’ and ‘Testing in the PayPal Sandbox’). PayPal is working with each institution individually and hopes to launch the modules by the end of the year. In the end, PayPal’s cooperation is expected to help 1,700 students develop industry-relevant skills and knowledge over the next three years.
