More importantly, you will learn how to incorporate blockchain, AI, and IoE into your business practices and how they are transforming supply chains.

Supply chain blockchain is taking root at a rapid clip. Emerging today are the components needed to create robust supply chain blockchain networks. However, exponential change will truly start to take shape through the integration of blockchain with other innovative technologies like AI and IoE. Technological intersections like these have led to the creation of major multinational corporations.
