Even prestigous UK unis joining blockchain “gold rush”

Sad.

The Oxford Blockchain Strategy Programme, run by the University and its Said Business School, offers you a six-week online course for just £2,200, promising you will emerge with “a comprehensive understanding of what blockchain is and how it works”.

On top of that, you get a certificate of attendance from the Said Business School as well as “access to a global network of like-minded business leaders and innovators”.

The Financial Times has been reporting on an even more exciting opportunity, a London School of Economics course in “Cryptocurrency, Investment and Disruption” – and this comes with a bargain price tag of just £1,800 for the six-week online programme.

When the reporter has the temerity to suggest that the programme seems to be lacking in academic rigour and may be tempting people into the unregulated world of crypto-trading, she is told this by one of the course leaders: “Stop being a journalist and just think. You’re citing marketing material as if that were the ultimate truth.”
