TUM School of Management Launches New Certificate Program: Certified Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technology Manager

No other technology is disrupting the global business world like Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT). “I think that blockchain is nothing less than the second generation of the Internet. It will change every institution, in some ways more so than the first generation did,” wrote Don Tapscott, author of Blockchain Revolution.

To meet the demands of business leaders working at the intersection of business and technology, the TUM School of Management is proud to announce a new certificate program: Starting on 18 September, 2019 our new Certified Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technology Manager will train a new generation of experts in these relevant technologies.

Specifically aimed at professionals with both an IT and a management background, the Certificate Program covers the technical, business, social and legal aspects of blockchain-based solutions in a balanced and unbiased way. The goal is to raise certified Blockchain Managers that can guide processes to unlock the full potential of these technologies for their enterprise.

With English-language courses taught on TUM campus in Munich, the five-day program will be divided into two modules: Module 1 from 18 – 20 September, 2019 and Module 2 from 7 – 8 October, 2019. The curriculum was developed by TUM experts in close cooperation with partners such as the European Blockchain Association, Datarella, and Signature Ventures.

Lecturers include Prof. Dr. Florian Matthes, Software Engineering for Business Information Systems (TUM), Prof. Dr. Joachim Henkel, Schöller Chair in Technology and Innovation Management (TUM), Prof. Dr. Isabell Welpe, Strategy and Organization (TUM) as well as company founders Michael Reuter (Datarella) and Florian Huber (

After covering the Fundamentals of Blockchain on day one, the curriculum explores the role of Smart Contracts, Tokens, and Coins. Day three is dedicated to Corporate Use of Blockchain while highlighting the strategic and organizational changes through blockchain and discussing the implementation of blockchain in enterprises. Day four will be supplemented by guest speakers from leading companies presenting Real-World Blockchain Applications. And finally, participants will have a chance to develop their own Blockchain Case Studies on day five.


Registration for this future-facing Certificate Program is now open. For more information, visit the official program website.
