About the Course
Blockchain is one of the most significant technologies to impact business and law in many years. This interdisciplinary online course is designed to expose students and professionals to the strategic opportunities presented by blockchain and distributed systems. Participants will learn from top faculty at UC Berkeley, who have pioneered an interdisciplinary approach drawing from the business, law, and engineering schools to provide the most comprehensive survey of blockchain available today.
Learners will gain foundational knowledge of blockchain technology, an understanding of how it is being used by businesses, startups, and governments, and a framework for analyzing enterprise use cases.
This cohort-based program covers a new module each week. In addition to the 8+ hours of video content, there will be weekly workshops throughout the course, assessments on the platform and learners will have opportunities to engage and interact with the lead instructor. The course culminates with a capstone project, where participants explore ways to apply blockchain to their own enterprise or job function.
