1What is the elegibility criteria to attend Masterclasses?
Access to the executive education programmes is restricted. Masterclasses are highly-specialised modules specifically designed for professionals and company executives in the payments industry. To qualify for attendance, participants must possess an accredited university-level qualification with a minimum of 1-year post-qualification experience in the payments industry or possess relevant professional certifications or be a patent-holder.
2How many can participate in each Masterclass?
With a strong emphasis on execution, peer-to-peer learning is highly encouraged and for this reason Masterclasses are limited to a maximum of 15 people. This enables a highly-personal dynamic while also maintaining a group size with diversity and energy.
3As a member of A4PAY, do I qualify for a discount?
Yes. While access to the directory of experts is limited to A4PAY members, all Masterclasses are open to non-members, so long as they meet the access criteria. A4PAY professional members will receive a 100% discount on their annual membership fees if they participate in 2 or more Masterclasses every year. A4PAY corporate members will receive a 20% discount for 4 or more executives attending any Masterclass in one year.
4What qualification do I get?
A4PAY has partnered with renowned academic institutions and is working to award a university-accredited postgraduate diploma. In the near future, each Masterclass module will accumulate ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System). All postgraduate diplomas will issued on blockchain.
