Blockchain master’s degree is now available at the University of Malta where more than 35 students have already enrolled in the program. Let’s check out the study guide in the blockchain latest news today.
The ‘’Blockchain Island’’ has now a government authority to certify the distributed ledger platforms and regulations to manage smart contracts including a framework for launching ICOs. The University of Malta is now offering a Blockchain Master’s degree and Distributed Ledger Technology course which began its inaugural semester this October with more than 35 students enrolling in the island’s nation only DLT-specific program which offers these programs as a part of the very few countries which offer the same. This is one of the latest changes in the Malta education system by including blockchain degrees which marks the effort keeping the title as one of the best places for blockchain technology development in the world.
The lawmakers in the country started passing blockchain-friendly laws and many high-end industry players such as Binance and OKEx moved their headquarters to the island. In less than one-year crypto companies started moving ashore and more businesses joined later. The master’s program director Joshua Ellul who also heads the Digital Innovation Authority of the country explained that in addition to the 15 companies who have already reached out to the DLT students, there is also a high demand for the government-run blockchain projects, initiatives, and contracts.
Last year, the Maltese government granted 300,000 EUR to fund program scholarships. The course will train the students in blockchain law and regulation, finance and blockchain but also information and communications technology. The students will listen to the program for three full semesters and will gain exposure to two other fields. Ellul explained that the academic diversity prioritizes a broad base of knowledge and the Blockchain professionals were also experts in the sector of the industry but very few can tie the other strands together. He explained:
“We noticed a huge problem between techies and lawyers and business professionals. There was a communication disconnect between us. We thought: ‘this would be the perfect place to have a master’s, one serving the multidisciplinary purposes of the different specializations.”
