You’ve probably heard of blockchain. It’s the technology that powers a US$180 billion cryptocurrency industry. But the truth is, cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin) are only a small part of blockchain’s potential. We’re here to show you the big picture. RMIT is the first Australian university to offer a dedicated blockchain short course: Developing Blockchain Strategy. We’ve partnered with industry leaders, like Accenture and Stone & Chalk, to develop a hands-on blockchain program. It’s a course for people who want to build real-world strategies and upskill fast.
We’ll start with the technology itself – the foundational structures and how they work. Then we’ll take a look at the scope of the wider blockchain industry. The key stakeholders. The scale and pace of investment. And how you can apply these learnings to your own business.
No entry requirements for the course, just bring a positive and inquisitive attitude as we will be discussing complex concepts.
Conceptual understanding of blockchain technology; framework for applying blockchain to your business; key technical, legal and regulatory considerations; cost benefit analysis.
