The 5,000-student university made the move as it seeks publicity for a
new master’s program in digital currency, set to launch next spring.
The program is designed to appeal to everyone from government
administrators to entrepreneurs.
apparently the world’s first “Master of Science Degree in Digital
Currency,” covers both the technical underpinnings of systems like
Bitcoin as well as how such systems will evolve and change society.
“Digital currency is an inevitable technical development that will lead
to significant innovation,” Christos Vlachos, the university’s chief
financial officer, said in a press release.
The program’s first course, Introduction to Digital Currency, will be
made available for free enrollment online. Classes at University of
Nicosia are taught in English.
