A curriculum and teaching partnership with the Blockchain Academy will provide Oklahoma State University attendees and the business community with the knowledge and skills to meet the demand for blockchain technology.
Oklahoma State University Announces New Partnership With Blockchain Academy To Provide Curriculum, Labs, And Educational Support To Establish The Spears School Of Business Outreach Program As A Primary Source Of Education, Certification And Talent to hire.
“The more I learn about blockchain technology, the more I understand how important education is to the successful career growth and potential of someone in this space,” said Dr. Ken Eastman, Dean of Spears Business. “Like in the early days of the Internet, those with the skills were doing exceptionally well. ”
The Blockchain Academy looks forward to partnering with OSU’s Center for Executive and Professional Development to provide blockchain educational opportunities.
“Live online education is crucial for teaching blockchain technology,” said Ryan Williams, executive director of the Blockchain Academy. “It’s a whole new way of thinking about business, and it requires dialogue, not only with the instructors but with the enthusiastic and like-minded participants, community of blockchain and crypto practitioners. ”
The benefits of this new partnership include:
- It enables the Center for Executive and Professional Development to rapidly establish new business and blockchain technology offerings comprising 13 uncredited courses and five certification programs.
- Given the limited number of established blockchain programs around the world, the Oklahoma business community has the opportunity to develop blockchain talent and ecosystem in today’s global competition for talent and business strategy.
- Professionals in accounting, finance, healthcare, supply chain, and other industries benefit from programs designed to address the challenges of their specific industries and existing use cases of blockchain technology.
