Executive Education Programs
Blockchain, Distributed Ledger Technology, and Cryptoassets

Our technology innovation program covers Blockchain, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), smart contracts, and cryptoassets, and how these underlying technologies can be applied to the enterprise.

The first part of the day is dedicated to a comprehensive overview of cryptoassets including: cryptocurrencies, their markets, and the economics that support their use and value. We then conduct a deep dive on blockchain transaction mechanisms and smart contracts using professionally designed animations, group activities, and a detailed enterprise grade platform demo.

The afternoon portion examines several use cases focusing on financial transactions and digital identity.

The workshop concludes with an instructor-led group activity whereby the class is organized into smaller groups to create a use case applying DLT or smart contracts. Each group presents their work to the entire classroom for further discussion and improvement.
