Application Deadline: Certificate in Digital Money
The Digital Frontiers Institute (DFI), founded by David Porteous, Gavin Krugel and Ignacio Mas, is partnering with the Fletcher School at Tufts University to launch their first course, the Certificate in Digital Money, an intensive, 12-week online course starting in February 2016 . The course will be taught in English.
The course is a foundational one, exposing students to the full lay of the land around digital payment ecosystems. It focuses on the big picture and integrates the component parts (banks, utilities, governments, third party providers) into an understandable whole.
The class uses online technology to move beyond a classic classroom experience. Students will not experience the course as a list of steps they need to take –videos they need to watch or assessments they need to complete. Rather, the whole course will be structured as an online discussion, which faculty stimulate by injecting teaching materials, cases, and open questions.
The cost of the Certificate in Digital Money is $5000 per student. Scholarships are available for individuals meeting certain criteria. Passing students will receive a Certificate in Digital Money from The Fletcher School, Tufts University.
