The World Bank has identified a global jobs crisis, predicting the need for 600 million new jobs in the next 15 years in an effort to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. Small businesses hold the key to creating these jobs, but many have insufficient access to credit when seeking to grow their business - a financing gap that is estimated by the IFC to be as much as £2 trillion.
 
The new ‘Oxford Fintech online short course’ will create a future wave of enterprises to bridge the financing gap and provide new opportunities for job creation.
