About this course:

This course lays the foundation to gaining competitive advantage in the Blockchain space by providing an understanding of the competitive implications and business opportunities associated with how Blockchain is affecting global industries such as finance, real estate, retail, healthcare, arts & entertainment, government, legal, food, energy, hospitality, education, insurance, and supply chain, among others. Through field experts, guest speakers, case studies, and a group project, the course aims to cover the factors and principles that govern the planning, organizing, and managing of a Blockchain based company or venture. Topics and group project focus on discussing and understanding how Blockchain will change the way we think about money, disrupt the role central banks have in conducting monetary policy, and eliminate high-cost money transfer services and transactions costs imposed by current intermediaries. In addition to addressing the disruption in current financial markets, the course aims to uncover near-term business opportunities to bring value to society and increase social inclusion through eliminating the time-consuming and expensive notary and escrow services, shrink the settlement time of financial contracts, and transform the landscape of legal contracts and procedures. Students should leave the course with a comprehensive understanding of the global competitive landscape and core concepts of how Blockchain can affect a company's future performance.
