2018 is shaping up to be the year of bitcoin in academia as more and more institutes for higher education enter the field. The latest example comes from a number of top ranked business schools in the US that are expanding their offering due to student demands.

Competitive Advantage

Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business will offer a full-time cryptocurrency course beginning this May. The new class came about following a coordinated campaign by MBA students who see the innovative concept as vital for their future careers. “Many of us will have to discuss blockchain at our jobs. It makes sense to teach it,” explained second-year student Itamar Orr. “It gets you a competitive advantage; it’s an extra hammer in your toolbox.”

A group of students petitioned the school’s leadership to add the full-time class as before it only covered the field on a pop-up basis. Once Stanford opened the class to registration the wider demand was confirmed as it was closed with over fifty candidates on the waiting list.

Susan Athey, the technology professor who will teach the new class, commented to CNBC: “The fluctuations in the prices have everyone mesmerized: Just how did this happen? Many people have gone boom or bust and that’s, of course, exciting, attracts a lot of interest and motivates people to understand what’s going on.”
