This course, designed for future business professionals, unpacks the buzz surrounding blockchain and the broader family of DLT’s (Distributed Ledger Technologies). Drawing on cases from a variety of industries in Europe, we explore how blockchain and DLT solutions can help businesses run more efficiently—and in some cases more sustainably—by bringing unprecedented transparency to supply chains, contracts, and markets. Our goal is to develop a feel for business situations where blockchain and DLTs can (or might not) be “game-changers,” along with a realistic sense of the challenges involved.
