The University of Cambridge announced plans to add Blockchain and digital currencies education courses to the university’s master of finance programme this summer.
The new subject will be offered as a core part of its educational programme on FinTech by the University’s Centre for Alternative Finance, based at its Judge Business School to study emerging financial solutions. Dr Garrick Hileman, an economic historian at the Centre for Alternative Finance commented:
“For more than two years, I have seen ‘tremendous’ interest from companies wanting to learn more about the blockchain. I have been called in to teach executives informally about Bitcoin and other virtual currencies such as Ether, and more recently, blockchain.”
According to the announcement, students will also learn about P2P lending, crowdfunding, alternative investments and new forms of credit analytics.
