Blockchain: Disruptive Technology

Blockchain has enjoyed runaway popularity in the technological world in the past few years. A potent force free from geographic and economic barriers, Blockchain has thoroughly disrupted our accepted ways of doing business. And, more importantly, it’s here to stay.

As one of the most important drivers of the digital transformation, Blockchain will undoubtedly have a profound impact on job markets, organizational culture, governments, and corporate strategy.

The “Fourth Generation” of Internet presents an immense new world of possibilities. Blockchain connects decentralized systems in a format that is open source, versatile, and unalterably secure without relying on third parties, so all of us can participate directly in the viral change that is sweeping the business world.

For that reason, MIT Professional Education is proud to announce its new online program Blockchain: Disruptive Technology. This course will teach professionals from diverse sectors about the fundamentals of Blockchain technology and its practical applications. The goal is not only to understand how this technology works, but also to learn how to apply it for maximum benefit in digital transformation projects.

Fire Hydrant Award | MIT Professional Education

MIT Professional Education
Fire Hydrant Award

Jerome Wiesner, president of MIT (1971-1980), described the experience of studying at MIT as “drinking from a fire hydrant.” Living and learning at MIT requires endurance, consistency, and a great deal of determination.

Our professional programs reflect and instill these essential capabilities. The “Fire Hydrant Award” was born as a way to acknowledge those students who demonstrate a constant thirst for learning and the ability to put knowledge into practice. This award is also given to participants who embody MIT’s core values: excellence, meritocracy, courage, humility, curiosity, and a passion for problem-solving and improving society.


At MIT Professional Education, we offer a number of benefits for participants who successfully complete the online Blockchain: Disruptive Technology program.
