Here is a link to the course: https://www.getsmarter.com/courses/uk/oxford-block...
Here is the prospectus (not sure if this link will work or if its behind a registration wall for you guys): https://cdn.www.getsmarter.com/uploads/course/info...
The program is 12 weeks online and costs 2,200 euros. I am looking to transition out of investment banking into the crypto industry. I have never considered an online certificate program and frankly always thought they were a waste of time/money. But, this actually looks legit and a lot of the guest speakers are major influencers in the crypto scene. I am just not sure if online certificates from top schools hold any weight at all.

My primary purpose would be to boost my resume and gain some validity in the crypto industry. Do you guys think this certificate would help?

I do eventually want to go to business school (2-3 years from now) and Oxford would be one of my top choices. Would this certificate help boost an MBA app?

Thanks!

HairyHilary, have you checked out these or run a search:

If we're lucky, maybe I can guilt some users to help you out: @takenotes08 @downtown22 @downtown22

Fingers crossed that one of those helps you.

I'm also wondering this...they just extended deadline for this module. (maybe not as many signups).

Harvard Extension also had a decent course.

If you become big into trading, running a crypto fund might want to consider moving to Puerto Rico. Big community with down here into it, Brock Pierce being one. Also for tax advantageous if haven't heard.
