Will courses on blockchain technology be as popular as the Georgia State football team? We’ll soon find out now that the University System of Georgia, with a host of corporate partners, is offering a state-wide financial technology academy.
The courses are open to students as well as adults who might want a new career in fintech. The academy is based out of Georgia State’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business, but courses will be available to students at the state system’s 26 institutions.
According to USG’s press release, more than 40,000 people are employed in fintech in the state, creating more than $72 billion in annual revenue. But that means there is a need for more workers, including those who can create and implement blockchain strategies.
Blockchain-related courses have been increasingly popular with students seeking a hot new field for potentially better-paying jobs.
