The Cornell Tech course will cover key aspects of blockchain technology including cryptocurrencies and ledgers.

Students who complete the two-month certificate program should be in a position to understand key areas in order to apply the digital ledger technology.

The blockchain certificate program is 100% online. The program will handle 35 students at the start, all required to devote 3 to 5 hours a week.  Prospective students will also have to partake the certificate program for two months.

The Cornell Tech Certificate program in blockchain will seek to impact students with knowledge on how they can leverage the technology. For starters, students will gain valuable insights on how to use the technology to power smart contracts. Likewise, students should gain valuable insights on how to use the technology to facilitate supply chain storage.

The New York-based learning institution also plans to educate students on how to use technology to solve business related problems. Participants even stand a chance to understand how peer-to-peer digital transactions take place on a blockchain.

The blockchain course is ideal for business and technology leaders as well as entrepreneurs and software engineers. Anyone seeking to develop a greater understanding of the digital ledger technology should find great value in the program.

The Power of Blockchain Technology

According to Ari Juels, a Cornell Tech professor, they decided to offer the program because of blockchain’s real-life solutions. The technology is poised to have a significant impact on people’s way of life. It is already having a ripple effect on various sectors of the economy as it continues to enhance efficiencies.

Our Blockchain for Business certificate program will explore the full power of blockchains with learners, enabling them to leverage blockchains’ powerful capabilities, recognize their often-overlooked technical limitations and apply them to real-world business goals,said Mr. Juels.

The higher learning institution decided to offer the program buoyed by the interest the technology continues to elicit. Companies, organizations, as well as governments around the world have already started taking note of the technology’s capabilities and benefits.
