The Blockchain Center of Excellence (BCoE) was established in May of 2018 within the Department of Information Systems in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. The vision is to make the Sam M. Walton College of Business a premiere academic leader of blockchain application research and education in areas such as supply chains, retail innovation and advanced analytics. We provide a balanced approach across public, private, and hybrid blockchains.
The BCoE works in close collaboration with major Arkansas-based companies that help us set the agenda for blockchain curricula and research. The center benefits information systems students, as well as other students across the Walton College and the University of Arkansas. Students learn the latest developments in the technology and create new applications, often based on use cases provided by BCoE members.
The Blockchain Center of Excellence of the Sam M. Walton College of Business brought industry and academic experts on Blockchain and related topics to the 2019 Blockchain Conference for Business.
Keynotes, panelists, and industry breakout sessions addressed the tough topics of shared governance, business models, regulatory uncertainty, and building viable ecosystems within a rapidly evolving blockchain landscape.
