The Continuing Education Department of the University of Paris Dauphine-PSL and the Institut Louis Bachelier (ILB) have recently entered into a partnership with the aim of creating and launching a Certificate on Decentralised Finance (DeFi) in early 2023. As such, a first information meeting will take place online on 24 November.

Decentralised finance is growing steadily. In fact, in January 2022, the total amount of funds deposited (the total value unlocked in the jargon) in decentralised finance projects reached $250 billion, compared to $19 billion the previous year… a jump of 1215.8% in one year!

A need for training of practitioners and students

Decentralised finance should therefore continue to attract significant amounts of capital and funds over the next few years. However, in this context of very strong growth, recruitment needs are also likely to increase, which will therefore have an impact on the need to train practitioners and students in recent and future professions in the field of decentralised finance.

A new course on decentralised finance

To meet the current and future recruitment needs mentioned above, Dauphine Executive Education and the ILB have created a course specifically dedicated to decentralised finance: the Decentralised Finance Certificate (DeFi). The first class of this new course is scheduled to start in February 2023. Under the responsibility of Hervé Alexandre (Université Paris Dauphine-PSL) and Louis Bertucci (ILB), the DeFi Certificate consists of 9 modules of 6 hours each, spread over a period of three months, and includes the principles of the Blockchain, Python and smart contract coding, and Token trading.
