MSc Digital Currency
The University of Nicosia is launching the first Master of Science degree in Digital Currency that is offered to students worldwide through online and in-person formats starting in Spring 2014.
The MSc in Digital Currency is designed to help financial services and business professionals, entrepreneurs, government officials and public administrators better understand the technical underpinnings of digital currency, how it will likely interact with existing monetary and financial systems, and what opportunities exist for innovation in digital currency systems.
The new Master’s programme will be offered both online and on-campus to students worldwide starting in Spring 2014. The language of instruction will be English.
Additionally, UNic will make the first class in the degree pathway, Introduction to Digital Currency, available for free as an open enrollment, MOOC-like course, to anyone interested in learning more about the fundamental principles of digital currency.
“While digital currency is a relatively new concept, currency is one of the oldest human inventions. What we aim to explore in this program is the likely development pathway of digital currency and give our students insights that they can bring to bear in their professional careers.”
