Developments in the FinTech space are transforming financial services and blockchain and distributed ledger technology is at the forefront of this revolution. Both The Wall Street Journal and The Economist have described it as technology that could change the world. And this applies to both developed and emerging economies alike.
Blockchain offers banks, asset managers and other organisations the potential to achieve considerable cost savings, efficiencies and resilience in relation to their payment and payment execution systems. These are developments that no senior executive can afford to ignore. Gaining a foothold at this early stage is vital in shaping the technology strategies of the future. Alternative Finance can change peoples’ lives, and economies, forever.
At its core, this course provides a grounded and organisationally relevant introduction to Blockchain and related cryptocurrency technology. Starting from first principles, the course approaches the technology from a number of different perspectives providing foundational knowledge that will enable delegates to return to their own organisations, or community projects, with a clear understanding of how this important technology impacts the bottom line. The Blockchain components are then supplemented with an overview of Alternative Finance within Africa.
On completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of completion. As the learning provider, GIBS will, on request, provide the supporting documentation to organisations. This documentation can then be used during the skills levy claim back process, with which organisations can motivate a claim back at either a level B or level D.
