Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania launches online course on blockchain and cryptocurrencies

Fri, 31 May 2019, 06:41 am UTC

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has announced that it is offering a new online course on blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

The online program, entitled “Fintech: Foundations and Applications of Financial Technologies,” will be available on the Coursera platform and cover areas such as payments, cryptocurrency and blockchain, lending, crowdfunding, modern investing and insurtech.

“Wharton is committed to leading the future of finance,” said faculty director David Musto, Ronald O. Perelman Professor in Finance, and faculty director of the Stevens Center for Innovation in Finance. “The Fintech Specialization leverages the knowledge of our renowned Wharton faculty providing real-world knowledge to the benefit of learners around the globe."

Each course will feature lectures and case studies from distinguished Penn faculty as well as speakers from the industry and guests drawn from such organizations as marketplace lender CommonBond, mobile payment processor Square, investment advisor Vanguard, and more.

Wharton said that the course is targeted at working professionals and will benefit current students, small business owners and anyone interested in gaining a foundational knowledge of financial technologies.

“We are proud to launch this program as part of our multi-faceted approach to defining fintech for the world,” said Anne Trumbore, senior director of Wharton Online. “The Fintech Specialization is an important new component of Wharton’s powerful fintech portfolio.”

Earlier this week, the Irish government announced the launch of the country’s first ever Master’s in Blockchain. The programme has been developed by Skillnet Ireland’s Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet, in collaboration with Dublin City University.
