“Having experience of almost 20-years in the IT and IT security field with a legal background, I firmly believe that this industry faces challenges, both in diversity and volume in the next couple of years. Blockchain seems to be a promising solution to a number of issues that we face today; however, its full potential is hardly understood. Therefore, it seemed beneficial to spend time studying this field and expand my knowledge in this area as part of my continuous learning.“

“The choice of EIT Digital professional education for the course was obvious for what it stands for, a strong digital Europe, but also due to its education partner and course organiser, the prestigious Budapest University of Technology and Economics.“

“I had some basic understanding of blockchain technology and one application of that, namely the cryptocurrencies. However, I was not aware of the vast options and possibilities that this technology could provide. The course was extremely useful to understand these and get somewhat "behind the scenes" of blockchain. It offered a great deal of new knowledge and a better understanding of this new phenomenon.“
