The new program is the result of a gift and will allow students to learn more about cryptoeconomics.
On Wednesday, June 22, the University of Cincinnati announced that it would be launching a cryptocurrency program and a financial technology program. The new offerings were made possible by a gift given to the school from longtime supporters Dan Kautz and Woodrow Uible.

The new programs will allow students to study cryptoeconomics and are planned to be incorporated into the Carl H. Lindner College of Business, held in the school’s new Digital Futures building, which is set to open in the fall.
“Through the Kautz family and their outstanding named institute, Dan and Woody have long been forward-thinking and generous friends to our university,” said UC President Neville G. Pinto, adding that “we are deeply grateful for their ongoing partnership and this new lab that will open more doors for our students and bring new partnerships across our growing campus.”
Kautz and Uible created the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute in 2019. Uible is a principal at Barlett Wealth Management and a University of Cincinnati Foundation trustee. Kautz is the co-founder and co-owner of K&S Companies, a real estate development and management organization.
“Thanks to Dan and Woody, our students will gain hands-on, experiential education in this new frontier of financial technology,” said Dean Marianne Lewis, PhD.
In addition to cryptocurrency the University highlights that students in the program will also learn about other use cases for blockchain technology and digital assets.
