Blockchain Collective, in partnership with San Beda University, has already started their blockchain course program to help students gain the knowledge and experience on how to apply blockchain frameworks into a business.
Blockchain Collective, Australia’s first and only Government Accredited Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain, is a leading blockchain education body empowering enterprise, educators, and students for a future in blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.
“There are lots of people who understood coding on the blockchain but when it came to actual strategic thinking on how to apply blockchain to business, that is when there’s a massive gap in the market,” said Austin Lewinsmith, co-founder of Blockchain Collective.
“Currently, there are lots of universities that were doing blockchain short courses but without any certifications,” Lewinsmith added.
There has been immense growth in interest of the applications of blockchain and DTL in recent years as future-thinking enterprise and governments had already started taking advantage of blockchain technology. However, industry research shows a lack of skilled people in this field.
Which is why, last May 2-3, the first-ever Blockchain Accounting Workshop by the Blockchain Collective was held at the San Beda University in Manila. The said seminar was designed to prepare 200 Accounting and Finance students with a sound foundation of blockchain knowledge to confidently sit the CPA exam. The training combines theory, practical and a demonstrative approach.
The two-day intensive workshop delivered practical and relevant skills, knowledge and examples of Blockchain’s uses, benefits, and limitations as it relates to accounting and the financial sector. It guided the students through the process of understanding Blockchain’s history, evolution, terminologies, current place in the market and its potential to disrupt many industry sectors. Seminar attendees were also given the opportunity to navigate a blockchain explorer.
Included for the seminar are lifetime access to Learning Management System and resources (via an online portal), seminar kits, online examination and Certificate of Attendance that is recognized globally.
“We like to make sure that the students understand in the accountant’s perspective what blockchain is all about, because if you are not transparent about the transaction then many people will be losing trust in the transaction processing. And understanding this really will help our students become future professionals who really understand how technology affects corporate governance, and how it will also be affecting the business community,” said Dr. Jackqui Moreno, Vice Dean-Accountancy & Business of the College of Arts and Sciences, San Beda University.
“We are passionate about offering emerging technology education to our students and are pleased to be the first delivery partner of Blockchain Collective in the Philippines,” Dr. Moreno added.
In conclusion, Joseph Chua, Director of Blockchain Collective-Philippines, said that the company aims to solidify the Philippines as the leading hub for talented and employable graduates in Blockchain.
