Course description

Delivered in collaboration between ZISHI and the University of Bath School of Management

This unique programme has been developed to enable finance professionals to build a comprehensive practical understanding of the emerging and complex sector of digital assets. The course explores the key concepts of decentralised finance (DEFI), non-fungible tokens (NFT’s), and decentralised autonomous organisations (DAO’s).

The course also covers the key financial crime risks associated with digital assets, and the measures and emerging technology in place to mitigate these risks, enabling you to develop the knowledge to stay ahead of potential threats.

We’ll review the strategic applications and impact of blockchain technology within financial services. As blockchain technology continues to disrupt traditional financial models, this programme will help you stay ahead of the curve and take advantage of emerging opportunities.

Finally you’ll also explore the emerging legal and regulatory landscape, equipping you with a solid understanding of current developments and approaches relating to regulation.
