Professor George Skiadopoulos, Professor of Finance in the School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary University of London, has featured in the Greek newspaper, Kathimerini on the banking industry in the digital era.

George said: "The Greek banking industry is being transformed, having entered the era of digital transformation. Significant opportunities for competent graduates of business schools exist in the departments which lead the operations of the banks.

In the new era, banks are looking for executives with knowledge in subjects such as big data analysis, artificial intelligence, financial technology (fintech) and ESG (Environmental - Social - Governance). Universities and the banking sector need to collaborate on revising the curriculum of the university studies accordingly."
