The latest institution to offer an accepted qualification in cryptocurrency studies is the South Korean Seoul School of Integrated Sciences and Technologies.
The school has launched what it calls “the world’s first crypto MBA course for a business graduate school,” with course areas covering Bitcoin, Ethereum, smart contracts, crypto funds, Dapp planning, game theory, and skills in whitepaper writing.
The 18-month educational programme will result in a final qualification of a Masters Degree in Business Administration. The course leading to the MBA referred to by the IT school in Seoul as “a master’s degree program in the blockchain, cryptoeconomics and token economy courses from technological, cryptoeconomic and business strategic perspectives,” adding:
“The curriculum includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, smart contract, cryptology, EOS, deep learning, and system dynamics mechanisms. The cryptoeconomics curriculum consists of digital currency studies, microeconomics, macroeconomics, behavioral economics and theory on currency finance, game theory and mechanism design.”
The school is by no means the first to delve into new technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency. In September New York University became the first college in the United States to offer a cryptocurrency and blockchain major. The crypto and blockchain major will be offered by the Stern School of Business. Earlier this year Sao Paulo University Fundacao Getulio Vargas (FGV) announced that it planned to offer a Masters Degree in Cryptofinance as part of its program in order to “prepare students for the coming era of digital currencies”.
2018 has seen a flurry of courses in blockchain emerging across the globe, with universities increasingly realizing the need to feed into an industry that is gaining prominence. Ivy league universities in the US are amongst the many leading this worldwide trend. Stanford’s Business School, ranked number one globally by the Financial Times this year, added its own version this year called “Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technologies.”
