Wharton accepts crypto payments for blockchain program tuition fees
The six-week program costs $3,800, and the Ivy League university expects to attract thousands of students each year.
Crypto adoption scores another win with the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania, but there’s a catch.
The Wharton School, one of the premier business schools in the United States, will accept Bitcoin (BTC) and other forms of cryptocurrencies for tuition fees, Bloomberg reported. However, the adoption is limited to its new online blockchain and digital assets program scheduled to start in January.
Titled “Economics of Blockchain and Digital Assets,” the six-week program costs $3,800, and the university expects to attract thousands of students each year. The Wharton School will use Coinbase Commerce, the e-commerce platform of the U.S.-based crypto exchange, to accept crypto payments.
Wharton is currently offering an introductory class to crypto and blockchain via the online education platform Coursera, which is part of a more extensive course about financial technologies or fintech.
