Career Karma recently ranked University of the Cumberlands as a top ten university for its online master’s in global business with blockchain technology program. Cumberlands was the only Kentucky university included on the list. The article can be found at https://careerkarma.com/blog/best-schools-for-blockchain/.
Cumberlands’ Master of Science in Global Business with Blockchain Technology (MS-Blockchain) program was the first of its kind in Kentucky and one of the first in the nation. Blockchain is a relatively new technology that enhances security in various business practices. The MS-Blockchain degree program teaches the fundamentals of the technology and how to use its capabilities in applications ranging from financial services to identity management. The program, along with all of Cumberlands’ programs, is regionally accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC).
Though the program is relatively new, students are already seeing the benefits of studying blockchain technology. Two of Cumberlands’ MS-Blockchain students, Greg Solt and Arunkumar “Arun” Azhagudurai, recently received a $6,000 research fellowship from Phemex, a crypto exchange located in Singapore, to study innovative topics related to Blockchain.
As the use of Blockchain increases, companies are searching for those best equipped to implement it. LinkedIn listed blockchain as the No. 1 “hard skill” for 2020 and Blockchain Developer as the No. 1 emerging job in 2018.* Learn more about Cumberlands’ Master of Science in Global Business with Blockchain Technology program at www.ucumberlands.edu/academics.
