Open online program

The Blockchain program will be delivered online.


After January 2018, the blockchain hype hit the disillusionment phase. Yet, many companies are working on implementing blockchain applications. Countries monitor the progress and change regulation to attract investors in this technology. However, blockchain technology still remains out of reach for many managers/companies, policymakers and strategists. What is behind this innovative technology and how can it actually create added value for companies? Which application possibilities exist and what new applications might be possible?


In this online program, we will focus on three leadership perspectives regarding blockchain:

  • Understanding characteristics of blockchain technology. How did the technology develop? What are the alternatives? Who are the players?
  • Analyzing value creation of blockchain start-ups. What value do they create? What is the differentiation against current solutions? Is there a market potential?
  • Applying blockchain technology. How can we use cryptocurrencies? What are applications for businesses? What new applications might be possible?
