Hence, it is expected that the employers will start to revise the skills they hire and the market will start to see new categories of jobs to serve this transformation. Market research indicates that any graduate with knowledge about Blockchain in an innovation context gets multiple job offers.

This will also provide experience across a wide range of industries including manufacturing, service, public and the third sectors. On completion of the degree, the participants will be well equipped with state-of-the-art knowledge of the concepts, methods, tools and techniques to enable them to contribute towards the competitiveness of their organisations.
