9 September 2021
The University of Liechtenstein has trained more experts in the fields of blockchain and fintech. A total of 16 students received their certificates at the graduation ceremony. Prime Minister Daniel Risch conveyed his best wishes.
The Institute for Finance at the University of Liechtenstein has concluded its third Blockchain and FinTech certificate program. This year’s 16 graduates were presented with their certificates at the graduation ceremony. Prime Minister Daniel Risch delivered his congratulations by video message. In this, he emphasized that the basic idea of the degree course was to “impart knowledge for the local market”.
The course of studies is intended to illuminate an application-oriented teaching of blockchain, fintechs and cryptocurrencies. In five different modules taught over four months, students acquire skills and knowledge for these innovative technologies in the financial sector.
“The Blockchain and FinTech certificate program at the University of Liechtenstein with a special financial focus is the only one of its kind in the German-speaking world,” as head of the course Martin Angerer said in a University press release. He added that “Liechtenstein was playing a pioneering role.”
The course is part of a long-term cooperation between the University and Bank Frick. The next Blockchain and FinTech certificate program will begin in January 2022.
