The global economy needs blockchain experts. The salary of engineers and Fintech specialists is at maximum levels; however, companies still cannot find the employees. The leading universities in the world offer to solve this problem. Relevant programs are launched here in cooperation with future employers.
Another University from the Ivy League starts blockchain course on the following program: Fintech: Basics and Application of Financial Technology. It begins in September 2019 at the Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania. The transaction technology, crowdfunding, and other innovative technologies will be studied here in detail.
The Ivy League combines eight oldest private Universities in the United States. According to many experts, here one can obtain one of the best education in the world. In addition, they are the richest US educational institutions, thanks in large part to the sponsorship of their graduates.
The blockchain training program at the Wharton Business School was created through collaboration with Square, CommonBond and Vanguard companies. They are the ones who need new industry experts. Besides, there is no doubt that graduates will find suitable vacancies with an appropriate level of income.
The fact is that Wharton’s course is far from the main one; nowadays, three Universities from the Ivy League hold the corresponding blockchain courses. Back in 2017, the Center for Blockchain Research was launched at Stanford. Its start was made possible thanks to the support of the Ethereum Foundation, Protocol Labs and the Interchain Foundation.
It was one of the co-founders of the Ethereum platform, Vitaly Buterin, who announced the start of The Center for Blockchain Research. It is exactly his foundation where the students of this course can come.
Yale, Wharton and Haas did not stand aside. They began to show interest in the blockchain back in 2017. As a result, we can say that the Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania was among the outsiders. It is almost two years behind its colleagues with the start of Blockchain and Fintech training program.
Although European educational institutions are not so fast in updating programs, they are also forced to study new technologies. The Blockchain Master Course starts at the University of Dublin. This two-year program is developed for those who already have a Bachelor’s Degree and Programming or related professions Diploma.
The training is conducted in a distant form, which allows existing employees to upgrade their skills in the blockchain field.
The problem is that the Irish are not very interested in cryptocurrencies. Although 40% of credit organizations and financial companies already use blockchain in their practical work, more than 70% of the population simply does not have complete understanding of new technologies. So it turns out an endless circle. The society does not understand the need for new services, which adversely affects the development of new technology. However, it is likely that the situation will change any time soon. Blockchain education will help to solve the problem with the quality of services and the demand for them.
