Obviously, we invite the best experts of the given topic as speakers and lecturers for all our training programs. By launching the blockchain course, we line up with such world-famous institutions like Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States, which has blockchain in its training portfolio.’
DWP provides professional support to the university level specialized trainings. According to László Jobbágy, CEO of Digital Welfare Non-profit Ltd.: ‘Financial sector is among the fields, where digitalization makes possible the jumping to the edge, all the more, since the Hungarian financial sector in technological terms already belongs to the leading group. This is the reason why DWP aims to help Hungary reaching a regional leading role in the fields of fintech and blockchain. A comprehensive fintech and blockchain strategy to be elaborated inside the DWP framework will formulate concrete professional recommendations for the utilization of blockchain technology. Blockchain technology in a couple of years’ time frame will result in serious competitive disadvantage for a company if cannot build up competencies needed for use. But not only IT professionals should be familiar with the concepts, block-chain expert lawyers, business analysts, project- managers and public service developers.
The specialized blockchain training in Edutus University is a crucial step in this direction.’
According to Tamás Czeglédi, co-founder of Blockchaineum and one of the supervisors of the university blockchain training: ‘During the training we strongly emphasize a thorough and profound discussion of the structure, logic and business application of blockchain. Besides the theoretical education we carefully investigate, explore and remodel practical examples and case studies. I strongly trust that after one or two semesters numerous interested students will arrive to us from the neighbouring countries who after the course will be able to use their acquired knowledge in their own business environment.’
The specialized training is open for those already holding a diploma.
