The program structure combining weekly lectures, tutor-led live group discussions, and industry case studies allowed me to get a thorough understanding of this growing industry in a time-effective way that fit my busy professional and personal schedule. I was able to connect and exchange with peers across the financial sector and other industries to understand how blockchain and digital assets impact the overall economy.
For EY to maintain its position at the forefront of blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital asset industry transformation, we recognize the importance of investing time into industry-leading training. Through our collaboration with Wharton to develop a private cohort related to their advanced certification program, EY is pleased to join forces with a top-tier learning institution for continued advancement of skills on these complex topics.
The Crypto/NFT space moves so quickly and I felt that by having a fundamental understanding of the technology itself, I would be better suited to learn and grow in the space. The course was fantastic, it provided me with incredible case studies to understand how other institutions have been using the technology and has made me more confident in our practices at Sotheby’s and how we can continue to benefit and integrate blockchain into our business.
I was able to gain a detailed and comprehensive view of this quickly emerging space. By better understanding the core tenants of blockchain, its applications, and real world use cases, I am now able to provide my clients with more tailored and forward-thinking strategic support. Wharton does a great job of weaving together content from industry experts with practical, hands-on assignments to make the course engaging and applicable to my career.
