Programme presentation:

The rapid growth and adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies have transformed industries and generated significant economic value. However, many businesses struggle to adopt AI effectively, as they lack the right talent to integrate AI within their business strategies and processes. This talent gap has created a demand for professionals who can bridge the gap between AI technology and business applications.

The MSc Artificial Intelligence for Business is designed to train professionals who can create, manage and implement AI solutions within organisations. This programme will equip graduates with the necessary skills to become leaders in the AI industry and create a competitive advantage for their organisations by offering a specialised curriculum that combines AI technology, business management, and practical applications.

Programme objectives:

The MSc Artificial Intelligence for Business aims to produce high-quality, technically competent and innovative graduates with the essential knowledge to understand the impacts, design, application and operationalisation of AI solutions in business contexts.

Upon completion of this programme, graduates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a critical understanding of the use of AI in business contexts.
  • Formulate, design, assess, and implement AI-enabled business strategies based on the latest industry practices and standards to enhance human potential and customer support.
  • Select and employ advanced, emerging AI techniques and tools to enhance business decision-making.
  • Synthesise and communicate the opportunity of AI to enhance the business strategy to key stakeholders.
