A major Sao Paulo institution is launching what has been reported as Brazil’s first Master’s degree in cryptofinance. The course comes amid an increasing embracement of virtual currencies on the part of the Brazilian universities, with themes pertinent to cryptocurrency increasingly being incorporated into mainstream tertiary finance studies.

Brazilian University to Launch Master’s in Cryptofinance Next Semester

Sao Paulo-based Fundacao Getulio Vargas {FGV} has announced what it claims is the country’s first Master’s degree in cryptofinance.

Program coordinator at FGV, Ricardo Rochman, emphasized the need for greater educational resources to be made available on the subject of cryptocurrency, stating “It is a market with a profound lack of people with expertise. Cryptofinance has economic and financial fundamentals that are worth discussing, researching, and [being] taught.”

Twenty-six-year-old economics student at FGV, Michele Araujo, attested to the benefits to studying the markets from a non-speculative perspective, stating “There is a conceptual gain of knowing both the practical applications of the technology and cryptocurrency as an alternative investment.”
