佐治亚州面向全州范围内大学提供区块链相关金融科技学位项目

美国佐治亚州大学系统(USG)9月11日宣布推出州内金融科技学院项目。

虽然斯坦福大学和纽约大学等个别大学提供了区块链课程,但是佐治亚州开设的项目是面向所有州内公立大学系统的在读学生。希望进入金融科技行业的专业人士和学位持有者也可以报名加入学院。

佐治亚州的金融科技项目重点介绍了区块链技术

佐治亚州金融科技学院在亚特兰大市中心地区有两处在校授课点,也有网络在线课程和佐治亚州内大学的院系课程,完成这些课程可以获得合格证书或学位。

项目旨在让佐治亚州的每个人都有机会获得金融科技教育,通过学徒制进行体验式学习。

尽管如此巨大的工程可能被视为风险太大且为时过早,课程创始董事Jim Senn还是明确区分了区块链的核心技术和个别加密货币。

Senn在采访中表示:

比特币和以太坊等加密货币应该从区块链或分布式账本中分离出来。比特币是一种应用。区块链是一种新兴的基础技术。

他承认,区块链核心技术仍处于新兴阶段,但是USG似乎已经把赌注压在了其不断增长的应用上。

此外,Senn还表示:

围绕区块链和分布式账本的行业发展正值初期。它在许多方面都像早期的互联网,以及更早期的万维网。技术界现在刚开始开发工具和实例,让区块链成为对商业和政府可行的技术。

作为金融科技的创新中心,亚特兰大正在吸引来自私营企业的专家为区块链应用教授有针对性的课程,包括商业银行业务、软件开发和供应链物流。

加密货币——新的教育领域军备竞赛

自从区块链展示了其为地区带来巨额投资和经济创新的潜力,各国开始加快步伐教授这项技术,以便在知识产权上获得竞争优势。

马耳他开局良好,政府和居民都敞开胸怀接纳加密货币投资者。9月2日曾报道过,马耳他大学创建了30万欧元的区块链奖学金基金。

佐治亚州新开设的金融科技课程也许会成为美国着眼于保持全球竞争力而加大力度推动全国范围内分布式账本技术发展的重要一步。

The University System of Georgia (USG) announced the launch of a state-wide fintech academy on on Sept. 11. It is the largest education effort of its kind in the United States.

While individual universities have offered blockchain courses, such as Stanford and NYU, Georgia is opening the program to all current students across all colleges in the state’s public university system. Additionally, professionals and degree-holders who desire to enter the fintech sector can enroll in the academy.

GA Fintech Curriculum Heavy in Blockchain Tech

Called the Georgia FinTech Academy, the program will have two in-person locations in the downtown Atlanta area for on-campus classes. Courses will also be conducted online and in departments within Georgia colleges. Completion of these programs will result in accredited credentials or degrees.

The scale is large. The mission is to make fintech education accessible to everyone in Georgia, with a focus on experiential learning through apprenticeships.

Though the large effort could be seen as risky and too early, Jim Senn, founding director of the program, makes a clear separation between core technologies and individual cryptocurrencies.

Senn stated in an exclusive interview with CCN:

“Cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin and ethereum, should be considered separately from blockchain or distributed ledger. Bitcoin is an application. Blockchain is a new base technology featuring a distributed ledger.”

He admits that core blockchain technologies are still new, but USG seems to have already placed its bet on growing adoption.

Reflecting on the industry, Senn said:

“The industry around blockchain and distributed ledger is in its infancy. In many ways it feels like the very early days of the Internet, prior to the introduction of the worldwide web. The technology community is only now beginning to develop the tools and practices to make blockchain a viable technology for business and government.”

As a hub for fintech innovation already, Atlanta is drawing on experts from private companies to teach targeted curricula for blockchain applications, including commercial banking, software development, and supply chain logistics.

Crypto — a New Arms Race in Education?

Since blockchain has the potential to bring regions large investments and economic innovations, countries are stepping up their efforts to teach the technology and gain a competitive edge with intellectual property.

China has poured money into luring blockchain innovators and investments, though the country still, ironically, has an overall ban on large components of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Malta, meanwhile, has a running start, with government and residents accepting cryptocurrency investors wholeheartedly. As CCN reported on Sept. 2, the University of Malta created a €300,000 blockchain scholarship fund.

Georgia’s new fintech program could be a major step in a growing push for the U.S. to step up efforts nationally in distributed ledger technology, with an eye toward remaining competitive globally.
