SSM Research Center acknowledged the impact of blockchain technology on the organization of the future, thus the requirements of its future leaders. That is why we partnered up with Weconomics, a Dutch organization of experts on blockchain management. We share the vision of a world with a minimum digital bureaucracy and transparency in business is best. Together we designed the world’s first MBA program with a specialization in blockchain management. A fine combination between core courses on management and innovative content covering blockchain-thinking.

About Weconomics

Weconomics focuses on the alignment of disruptive technologies (such as blockchain) with fundamentally new organization models and concepts. These technologies and concepts will make traditional organizations and inefficient markets too expensive, by default. One of these new organization concepts is called: The digital assembly line. A blockchain creates rich data that, together with data organization, assembles data into information. This will reduce organizational costs by tens of percent. Weconomics offers academy services (training, lectures, courses, cases etc.), project support (digital waste assessments, Community Model Canvas, scenario planning, backcasting etc.), HR-Services (recruitment, staffing, assessment, talent programs), consultancy, software development (simulations, proof of concepts) and an expert network & knowledge center.
