Mahwah-based Ramapo College is planning to offer a professional certificate in blockchain, the record-keeping technology behind the Bitcoin network.
The Ramapo College Professional Certificate in Blockchain program will provide current and future managers a deep dive into the understanding of blockchain. Managers will learn its cost benefits, what is involved in using it, and how to implement it in their workplaces.
The first class is currently being formed. All classes will be scheduled on Mondays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Blockchain is a distributed, decentralized, public ledger that holds transactional records. It allows users to create business arrangements that remove the need for intermediaries such as purchasing departments, insurance companies and foreign exchange companies. Blockchain technology is expected to transform industries such as real estate, financial services, health care, insurance, public sector and retail.
Ramapo Professor John Thomas, director, Business Professional Certificate Programs, said in a prepared statement that “[e]arning a certificate in blockchain is an essential tool for today’s managers charged with leading efficient operations, streamlining supply chains and cutting time spent in record-keeping.”
Information sessions are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the following Mondays: March 2, March 30, April 6, April 13, April 20, and April 27 in the Anisfield School of Business, Room ASB-104 or virtually. To sign up to attend an Information Session, pre-registration is requested on the website.
