The Breakfast Club

It’s almost the last day of school! You’ve made new contacts and have been telling your friends and family, “Everybody loves me so much at this school.” You’ve determined you aren’t the only payments geek out there as you’ve realized we’re all a little bizarre, some of us are just better at hiding it. But the learning isn’t over yet. Get your protein-filled breakfast, "Excuse me, Rich. Will milk be made available to us?" Put on your required uniform, "You wear tights? No, I wear the required uniform." And enjoy the company of your classmates before we hit the books.

Do you Really Understand the Nacha Operating Rules?

General Payments School of Study

Do you follow the Nacha Operating Rules to the letter all the time?

This interactive course looks at some processes that walk a fine line between compliant and noncompliant. Using examples submitted anonymously from students and from real-life audit findings, you’ll gain an understanding of why the Rules are written as they are, and how the application of the Rules may vary. Students interested in attending this class will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to TPI.

Risk mitigation and detection methods are also reviewed.

Faster Payments Risk Strategies

Payments Risk Management Master’s Program

The faster payments movement in the U.S. shows no signs of stopping. All payments participants will be impacted in some manner by a new product, payment system or process. As payments move faster, it is critical to identify processes to use these mechanisms while ensuring steps are taken to recognize risk. Building a strategy for identifying and mitigating faster payments risk goes beyond understanding the “hows” and the “whys.” It must also include the “why nots” and the “what ifs.” Instructors in this course explore faster payments offerings available in the marketplace, while examining the need to develop procedures to recognize and mitigate risk in the faster payments environment.

New! Product Management: Conversations & Evolutions

General Payments School of Study

Product Managers are essentially the CEO of that offering. Even beyond the FI, payment organizations make decisions on what products go to market and how they evolve through time. The success of the product is shaped through conversations with management, with clients, and with the internal team. The role of a product manager varies at every organization and the responsibilities can be daunting, but the results can impact your organization for years to come. Instructors in this course share their experiences and are joined by a corporate customer who facilitates an interactive discussion to help students recognize how product knowledge, meeting internal operations requirements, understanding revenue expectations, and other attributes lead to success.

New! The Future Evolution of Regulation E

Master’s Program

In addition to being more convenient, non-traditional payment methods for P2P, B2C and C2B also shift away from cards and checks to apps and mobile.

Putting FFIEC Guidance into Practice

Tips on how to make your policies and procedures more effective will also be shared.

Respective Roles Within FI & Fintech Partnerships

Payment Innovations & Technologies School of Study

More than a fleeting buzzword, fintech is redefining innovation in financial services with new approaches to R&D, collaboration, strategy, product design and delivery. With a customer-centric focus supported by analytics, fintechs are often good potential partners, especially for projects with goals that extend beyond what traditional banking is accustomed. But what happens after the vendor agreement is signed? This course explores the roles FIs and fintechs play after a partnership begins, and presents strategies for leveraging the best assets each organization has to achieve the ultimate success of a product or innovation, which is customer satisfaction.
