One of the leading institutions in the world London School of Economics that have educated the heads of state and Nobel laureates is the latest university to offer a course on cryptocurrency.

They have introduced an online course entitled “Cryptocurrency Investment and Disruption” for £1800  for sixty hours of learning. The blurb for the course reads a bit like it was written in late-2017/early-2018 when crypto-euphoria had well and truly set in and everyone was quitting their jobs for the love of the digital token.

The significant growth and the highly volatile nature of cryptocurrencies and the distributed ledger technology have led to the interest in crypto assets internationally. The word crypto has become a highly disruptive trend.

The course is headed by Dr Carsten Sørensen, Associate Professor of Information Systems and Innovation. LSE is not the only top-notch institution to join the list of institutions offering crypto course. Cambridge, NYU, Northwestern, Stanford, Wharton and Georgetown, have introduced crytpo courses recently.

The first batch for the course starts on 14 August 2018, and will take six weeks to complete (excluding orientation) with an estimated commitment of about seven to ten hours per week. This course is also certified by the United Kingdom CPD Certification Service.

The institution explains about the course, “For over one hundred years, LSE’s motto has been to ‘understand the causes of things’. This online certificate course pairs practical cryptoasset knowledge with the theoretical thought leadership for which LSE is renowned.”
