Harbour.Space is a university created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. We focus on meeting the demands of the future, while traditional education providers are too often stuck in the past.

We’re one of the only European institutions completely dedicated to technology, design and entrepreneurship, and our interdisciplinary courses are taught by some of today’s leading professionals. Our aim is not only to equip students with the knowledge to take on the real world, but to nurture, create and shape tomorrow’s tech superstars.

Combinatorics and graph theory lay at the heart of discrete mathematics and computer science. In the course, we begin with a brief review of the fundamentals of combinatorics---counting, permutations, binomial coefficients, and the pigeonhole principle---and then devote most of the course to the fundamentals of graph theory. We cover the most common definitions and ideas of graph theory, proving important theorems and introducing important algorithms, but mostly aiming to simply establish the common language of discrete mathematics and computer science.

Enabling leaders to realize themselves is the key to enabling change in our transformative world.

The financial and insurance industry as we know it is undergoing rapid change and the pace of change will increase more rapidly. New entrants (Amazon, Apple, WeChat, Telegram etc.) are attacking the century-old business model of existing financial services players. We will dig into the world of FinTech and InsurTech (two of the most critical and fastest growing start-up areas) and will discuss these industries and the disruption potential in more detail.

We will look at numerous concrete examples. At the end of the session you should have many new insights, but also at least one concrete idea on business opportunities in FinTech & InsurTech.
