Course content

The Master in Blockchain & Digital Assets programme is a part-time Master of Science entirely taught in English where you can work full-time while studying part-time. It is offered online and on campus so you can alternate in-person and online lessons.

This programme will teach you how blockchain builds the infrastructure for future financial markets and how companies can leverage the new technology to provide more security, transparency, efficiency and digitalisation. In order to do so, step one is to cover the technical background such as DLT technology, blockchain, DeFi, tokenisation, digital money, smart contracts and the coding thereof. In the second step, we look at applications for advancing blockchain solutions and the design of suitable strategies as well as their regulation through law and ethics. In the third step, we will identify emerging topics in DeFi and FinTech while understanding their impact on entrepreneurship, sustainability and innovative business models.
