UNT brought blockchain to the classroom. Business professionals and College of Business students learned about the financial, technological, legal and governance aspects of blockchain for organizations and how it can be used to improve processes, lower costs, increase security and speed transactions. Blockchain for Business (BCIS 4900 and BCIS 5900) is back by popular demand for the Spring semester. The course is just one way UNT’s Department of Information Technology and Decision Sciences is preparing the current and future workforce. On Jan. 24, one of the course’s instructors Cijoy Olickal, will moderate the TechTitans Blockchain Forum on industry-university blockchain research. The event, hosted at UNT’s Inspire Park, will feature panelists from universities in the North Texas region.
