Transformational AI and Business Strategy

Use AI to manage, lead, and solve complex business problems.

Today, more than ever, the world of business is being transformed by the promise of artificial intelligence, the ubiquity of data, and the application of advanced analytics. This program provides an integrated view of business and technology and prepares senior executive participants to manage, lead, and solve complex business problems using cutting-edge AI technology.

As AI proliferates business strategy, leaders from all domains – whether marketing, human resources, finance, or technology – must be ready to implement a comprehensive AI strategy. Business leaders must be able to separate the hype of AI from the business reality, deciding which AI projects have the potential to deliver transformational results and are worthy of investment. In this program, gain a fundamental understanding of AI technology and how to harness it in a strategic way. 

This immersive program offers participants an opportunity to learn from Carnegie Mellon’s world-renowned faculty to provide senior leaders with the knowledge to  integrate artificial intelligence into their strategic business plans.

Gain exposure to the wide array of artificial intelligence technologies, from machine learning and natural language processing to predictive and prescriptive analytics. Discover how to ensure that the data your organization already collects is ready for AI-applications. Prepare your teams for technological transformation and receive recommendations on how to upskill your workforce to prepare for changes in technology. Build an understanding of AI’s current capabilities as well as its future potential and potential drawbacks, including ethical concerns. Finally, examine your overall business strategy to adopt AI transformation for ongoing sustainability and success.
