What you will learn?

The CAS Fintech & Blockchain Economy builds a bridge between the established real economy and the potential of a dynamic future in a financial world characterized by fintechs and new types of blockchain-orchestrated value chains. By deliberately demystifying the hype, a solid knowledge base is created. This course enables you to link the application areas of fintech and blockchain ecosystems with commercial opportunities for your company.


According to a survey of business leaders and politicians, over 10% of global economic output will be processed via the blockchain by 2027. Company founders have already raised around 10 billion dollars through the financing and investment models of the Initial Coin Offering (ICO). The still young technology, on which crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Ripple are based, is spreading inexorably. More and more companies, also outside the financial sector, are integrating blockchain and crypto into their value chains for logistics, trade and insurance.

The extra-occupational CAS provides you with the know-how in 18 study days to answer the following questions, among others:

  • What is the magical attraction of the blockchain based on? What does she promise?
  • Where and above all how can the greatest potential around blockchain be tapped in the short and medium term? Are there any sensible alternatives?
  • What effects does the decentralized architecture of crypto-based technology concepts have on society, politics and the world of work?
  • How can disruptive industries in particular keep agility high in order to quickly validate interesting solutions for (and with) customers.
  • Which strategies promise the best success in dealing with the regulator and in involving partners?
  • How can blockchain be meaningfully integrated into higher-level digital initiatives and which business model governance is required for this?
