Oxford Blockchain Strategy Programme Participant Testimonials

The world is at a tipping point – where mass commercialisation of blockchain is about to begin. Instead of playing catch-up, you can be one of the few that help to pioneer this field and adopt a winning blockchain strategy for your business.

This six-week programme is presented entirely online by Saïd Business School, University of Oxford in collaboration with GetSmarter, and will equip you to:

  • Understand what blockchain is, and how it works
  • Share insights into how blockchain will affect the future of industry, and of your organisation
  • Use the knowledge you learned to incorporate blockchain into your business strategy
  • Collaborate and interact with an international cohort of business leaders, and in a smaller group of peers with similar interests to you

They’re motivated to become future-fit leaders, much like yourself. Here are their testimonials about the course:
