NYU Stern to launch a two-day executive programme about the blockchain

FinTech | October 5, 2015 By:

David Yermack, professor of finance and business transformation at NYU Stern in New York, will launch a two-day executive programme about the blockchain in November.

The executive course is targeted at more than those working in the finance sector, said Yermack. “This is not just a financial thing. It is for anybody who needs to keep track of these issues.”

Prof Yermack says the blockchain could have huge applications for record-keeping in a range of industries, such as the media or arts as well as manufacturing and finance. “It looks like the blockchain is a replacement for double entry bookkeeping.”

NYU Stern is New York University’s business school. Stern is one of the oldest and most prestigious business schools in the world.
