About this course:

Blockchain has the potential to revolutionize sectors and ecosystems in which trust is needed among parties. This course aims to help students understand the disruptive potential of blockchain to solve pain points and provide increased efficiency, automation, and transparency. It provides students with tools, best practices, and success drivers to design effective and robust governance and collaborative models. This course will teach you what CEOs are starting to recognize - that new business models and collaboration around blockchain are critical to create, deploy, accelerate, and scale industry-wide solutions. Students will get an in-depth understanding of the different approaches, including the blockchain consortium model, that allow competitors to collaborate to create decentralised networked solutions to solve shared problems, while also protecting their competitive advantage individually, keeping sensitive data confidential. Through the course work, students will gain exposure to a diverse set of real-world blockchain case studies that consist of many stakeholders with different relationships and incentives. While blockchain technology has the potential to upend existing systems, this course will also highlight that blockchain is not a silver bullet. This course aims to position the technology in the larger context of digital transformation, traditional technologies, and as a complement to other emerging technologies such as Internet of Things or machine learning.
