The advent of the information society has put greater emphasis on the importance of data as valuable sources of information for organisations to transform and grow in digitalising environments. The increasing amount of data and the rapidly advancing digital technologies are creating unprecedented opportunities for companies to become more agile, adaptable, and proactive in meeting their customers’ needs and preferences. However, future managers in such digitalising environments are also expected to be well acquainted with emerging technologies and to acquire the fundamental skills for managing digital technologies in order to support the transformation or the competitive goals of their company.
The MSc Artificial Intelligence & Digital Technology Management is one of the very first programs worldwide to be specialised in artificial intelligence and digital technology for business managers. This program builds on artificial intelligence as a backbone for all courses but also trains you in major areas of digital technology management. Future graduates will have an ideal balance of soft- and hard-skills to tackle all the major challenges related to the digitisation of a company.
A highly innovative content
The MSc Artificial Intelligence has been designed to provide you with a thorough understanding of artificial intelligence wherever it is used in professional areas – autonomous robots in warehouses, logistics and supply chain, business analytics, credit scoring, marketing analytics – but aslo in everyday life: autonomous vehicles, resource matching, recommendation systems, facial recognition.
Immersive teaching methods
The teaching method will adopt a very hands-on perspective of skill and knowledge acquisition. You will take part in interactive discussions with instructors and experts, case studies of contemporary organisations and phenomena, outdoor activities (conferences, seminars, exploration of social events, and participation to professional events).
