Financial techniques and digital technology are progressively merging; this leads on the one hand to a progressive distribution of monetary power among a multiplicity of players at a sub-state level, and on the other hand by introducing innovative ways of obtaining financial resources; methods that go beyond national barriers and formal processes imposed both by state legislations and by operative formulas that, in the contexts examined, need to be reformulated at a company level. Moreover, decentralising data processing is opening new boundaries that couldn’t be identified before, both regarding the potential for intersectorial developments, and for the creation of a new level of freedom in history for the human being.

In this rapidly evolving environment it is necessary to introduce a new approach to the study of the subject combining the technical study and the development of programming skills with an economic approach and at an interdisciplinary level, starting from a general macroeconomic perspective, and then focusing on the intermediate level represented by the company, moving to consider the potential development of blockchain in the security, public administration and intelligence sectors and then evaluate the legal and privacy aspects.

A second part of the course is dedicated specifically to the technical aspects of blockchain, to its operational taxonomy and to the programming of smart contracts, culminating with an internship for the realisation of a widespread blockchain system for saving academic and curriculum data of students, a practical example of application of the technology itself.


Professional enrichment is especially directed to:

  • those who operate in the finance and bank sectors, who are willing to enrich their level of expertise;
  • professional traders, for a deeper knowledge of the virtual currency sector, markets and operational possibilities;
  • company managers, who want to implement blockchain technology in their companies, understanding its applicability and potentials, from CEOs to middle management;
  • professionals, interested to deepen their knowledge and implement advanced technologies;
  • experts in the logistics sector, to study ad hoc solutions for their;
  • company data managers, who want to study new solutions combining current law transfer and control;
  • auditing/legal sector professionals, to deepen their knowledge and to respond appropiately to the requests of advanced technology sector;
  • fresh graduated, who want to specialise and add to their CV something of interest to hi-tech companies and the blockchain sector.


The acquisition of specific knowledge in the field of advanced finance will be particularly profitable for those who:

  • want to get closer to the Fintech world, which is currently in great expansion, from a professional point of view;
  • intend to propose themselves in the financial world for their own knowledge of the performance of the crypto currencies markets, whose modality and volatility are not very comparable with ordinary financial markets;
  • desire to study new interdisciplinary approaches that cross new technologies with the traditional economic or administrative sectors.
