The University of Cincinnati will soon offer two new programs studying cryptocurrency. 
Thanks to a recent donation, UC announced it will offer the new programs within the Carl H. Lindner College of Business this fall and open a new lab dedicated to cryptocurrency. The new programs will promote student learning of blockchain technology and digital assets, UC said in a news release.
The donation was made by K&S Companies co-founder Dan Kautz and UC economics alumnus Woodrow Uible, who established the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute together at Lindner in 2019.

“Thanks to Dan and Woody, our students will gain hands-on, experiential education in this new frontier of financial technology,” Marianne Lewis, dean of the Lindner College of Business, said in the release. “Our students will learn how to manage cryptocurrencies and how such digital assets impact our economy, positioning UC as the regional leader and among the top universities nationally with this kind of program.”
The Kautz-Uible Cryptoeconomics Lab, the first lab to be named in the university’s forthcoming 180,000-square-foot Digital Futures building, opens this fall. According to the release, it will include space for labs and classrooms focused on applied research and offer opportunities for public-private partnerships on technology, transdisciplinary research and digital expression.
