Universities beginning to set up Masters Degree programs in cryptocurrency finance

The MBA (Masters in Business Administration) is one of the most lucrative degree programs a student can achieve.  And with the global financial system rushing headlong towards a completely digital platform which includes the Blockchain, it was only a matter of time before universities began to engineer programs dedicated towards this technology.

And now on April 12, a major university in Sao Paulo, Brazil has become one of the first colleges worldwide to accredit a Masters program dedicated to cryptocurrencies and cryptofinance.

Sao Paulo-based Fundacao Getulio Vargas {FGV} has announced what it claims is the country’s first Master’s degree in cryptofinance. 
Program coordinator at FGV, Ricardo Rochman, emphasized the need for greater educational resources to be made available on the subject of cryptocurrency, stating “It is a market with a profound lack of people with expertise. Cryptofinance has economic and financial fundamentals that are worth discussing, researching, and [being] taught.” 
Twenty-six-year-old economics student at FGV, Michele Araujo, attested to the benefits to studying the markets from a non-speculative perspective, stating “There is a conceptual gain of knowing both the practical applications of the technology and cryptocurrency as an alternative investment.” – Bitcoin News
