The university’s goal to provide its students with practical expertise and knowledge that can enable them to thrive in the modern digital economy.

Universally, there are not numerous universities that already offer courses dedicated to emerging blockchain-based technologies, and they are often limited to supplying theoretical training in this regard. 

The thing is the fact that the job market instead requires specialists in the field, although often to be able to be a true expert such that the real job market is interested, experience in the field matters more in this area than training. 

As of now there is still a great imbalance betwixt the availability of jobs in this field and the demand coming from skilled personnel, so much so that the latter can go so far as to demand decidedly attractive salaries to be able to let themselves be hired. 

Universities should fill this gap, but they cannot limit themselves to doing so by  supplying theoretical knowledge.

Emerging countries

Georgia is certainly not known for having an internationally established blockchain tech landscape. 

Nonetheless, there are quite several  Georgians who would be willing to go and work abroad for a time likewise, to be able to get interesting results.

Furthermore, it is frequently a bit easier in emerging countries to experiment with really new things, because they do not start from a strong system that is indeed largely crystallized, such as the traditional financial system in advanced countries. 

So for emerging countries these new technologies are a real opportunity that is not particularly difficult to seize, just by virtue of the fact that nowadays the digital job market is global.
