Description

Although blockchain is a relatively new concept, it has become an important part of various industries such as fintech, healthcare, real estate, and supply chain. Thus, it is essential to educate the workforce of tomorrow on this new technology to ensure that students are prepared for the challenges of the competitive job market after graduation. This study aims to start a dialogue on curriculum innovation in higher education by examining current trends and course offerings. We analyzed 266 R1 and R2 institutions in the US and found that only a small number of them offer such courses. Thus, our next steps would be to provide some guidance for curriculum innovation, as well as pedagogical strategies that can reflect the dynamic nature of the IS field.
