It’s 2019 and you’re probably still wondering what on earth blockchain technology really is — and you’re not the only one. Blockchain is the technology behind the much-talked-about cryptocurrency, bitcoin. And this is only scratching the surface.
Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt businesses and industries, helping lower costs, enhance trust, transparency, and privacy.
Today, technology is advancing rapidly and businesses need to be proactive to continue growth. The reality is that managers who fail to fully understand the range of applications for blockchain risk being left behind.
Leaders in Vancouver’s business disruption space, UBC Sauder School of Business, want to help you maximize the capabilities of blockchain technology. On March 22 and July 18, the school is offering a one-day course that will help you understand everything you’ve wanted to know about blockchain.
You’ll have the chance to explore the applications, opportunities, and threats of blockchain and similar technologies from a business (non-technical) perspective, and understand how these technologies could transform your business and industry.
During the course, you’ll discover how blockchain technologies can create new ways to organize your business and enable new assets and markets. You’ll acquire a set of lenses to critically evaluate blockchain-based solutions, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets.
Curious to know how blockchain is emerging in sync with AI and the Internet of Things? You’ll get the answers at this course and learn how they could be combined in the future to allow for even more disruptive apps.
Chris Rowell, UBC Sauder faculty, will be instructing the course and you’ll have the chance to ask any burgeoning questions you may have.
At present, Chris is researching the emergence of the global blockchain field. In a recent interview with The Globe and Mail, he explains how “the target for me, when I designed the course, was people in established organizations who wondered how blockchain works and how they use the technology to make what they’re already doing more efficient.”
