Morgan’s Graves Business School has joined several other universities in an initiative to demystify for the campus community digital currencies and the underlying Blockchain technology. UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Duke, MIT and other universities are rushing to meet the surge in students’ demand to learn about Cryptocurrencies. Many offer large sections of courses that bring together several disciplines from business, computing, law, etc. to increase awareness. Dr. Ali Emdad, Associate Dean at the Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management along with Mr. Yaya J. Fanusie, a Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies have organized a Panel of national experts to present various perspectives on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology. Actual implementations and proof of concept cases indicate Blockchain’s huge promise in various areas such as education, insurance, retail, healthcare, etc.
The event is scheduled for March 1, 2018, 11 am to 12:30 pm in the Auditorium in the Morgan Business Center. The Panel Discussion is followed by a Q&A session.
This panel discussion is the first in a series of events the Graves School of Business has planned with the goal of increasing awareness and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in various disciplines on campus.
One of our objectives in this initiative is to coordinate the effort to help Morgan’s faculty, in a sustainable way, integrate various aspects of this new technology into their curricula and student learning in various disciplines.
The Graves School plans to organize additional lectures and panel discussions at Morgan. The Capital Markets Lab at the School, under the leadership of Mr. George Micheni, plans to offer hands-on workshops on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain.
