In response to the growing importance of blockchain as an emerging industry, RMIT has launched Australia’s first university short course on blockchain strategy, built with industry to enable business leader to develop a rich and relevant understanding of blockchain.

The 8-week online course starts on 19 March and was developed by the university’s Blockchain Innovation Hub, Stone and Chalk and Accenture.

From crypto startups to established enterprises, global demand for blockchain expertise is far outstripping supply, making it one of the hottest areas for technology recruitment. Blockchain development is the second-hottest skill in the job market today, growing more than 200%.

“This course harnesses the creativity and entrepreneurship that RMIT is renowned for. It gives them the knowledge they need to be ready for life and work, and to success in the 21st century workforce,” said Martin Bean, Vice Chancellor of RMIT.

“Blockchain is now becoming a core part of contemporary digital literacy and we’re delighted to offer an industry-focused program built in collaboration with out partners at Stone & Chalk, as well as the Blockchain Innovation Hub.”

RMIT believe the course will be of particular interest to business leaders and the next generation of entrepreneurs looking to develop a rich and relevant understanding of blockchain, what it is and how it will impact their industry and business.

“Stone & Chalk has been in discussions with businesses and governments for years around the emergence of blockchain and how it will impact their industry,” said Alan Tsen, Melbourne General Manager of Stone & Chalk. “Banks are already behind blockchain technology in a big way. There is a real demand for blockchain training and a skills gap in the market that needs to be addressed.”
