As a foundational technology, Blockchain and other Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) are the basis for future data-driven businesses and applications. The Blockchain-inherent decentralisation means a paradigm shift not only for technical architectures and processes, but also for business models and society at-large. For enterprises and their managers, understanding Blockchain and DLT will be an essential component of their future work.

In this brand-new program on one of the most promising but also contentious technologies, corporate leaders learn how to implement and manage Blockchain and DLT, and how to unlock its potential for the enterprise. This Certificate Program covers the technical, business, social and legal aspects of blockchain-based solutions in a balanced and unbiased way.

The modular design of our course allows all participants to align the content with their individual needs. Even though this course is offered completely online, the participants will still be able to interact personally and individually with lecturers and the fellow participants while still being able to follow their own schedule for the majority of the coursework.

The new course design includes a variety of industry-specific options which will enable the participants to transfer their learnings immediately to their individual work environment.
