Citizens of South Korea can now obtain an MBA in Crypto/Blockchain Studies. The course covers more than just Blockchain technology, however.
The Seoul School of Integrated Sciences and Technologies which is also known as aSSIST is offering students a Masters of Business Administration for Crypto/Blockchain related courses. This master’s degree will cover everything from cryptoeconomics, token economy, smart contracts, whitepaper construction and much more. Part of the curriculum also includes studying Bitcoin, Ethreum, EOS, macro and microeconomics, game theory and mechanism design. This program seems to delve in much more than just cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
To explain why this progressive action was taken, the school wrote:
“The mission of Assist business school’s Crypto MBA program is to remedy the lack of academic research and systematic education currently available in the industry, despite a high level of social interest in the blockchain and cryptocurrency.”
This is a progressive action even though Initial coin offerings have been banned since September 2017. This was a reaction to all the fraudulent and scamming parties that took advantage of investors. South Koreans have been a big part of price movement in the cryptocurrency space. Several lawmakers of introduced bills to help regulate ICO’s and protect investors.
This South Korean College isn’t the only educational entity taking part in this new movement of Blockchain education. Standford’s Business School created a course that focuses on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology. They too are focusing on Bitcoin, Ethereum, smart contracts, and the distributed consensus.
The fact that big educational institutions are creating college courses to teach the future of technology is a great sign of the positive impacts blockchain is having in the world. The technology is definitely revolutionary all though many skeptics say otherwise.
