Why Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence (AI) will significantly change the content and nature of work in organizations -- for accountants, financial and budget analysts, digital marketing managers, strategists, risk managers, and data scientists, among others. AI knowledge is imperative for current and future managers, analysts and leaders. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) concentration provides hands-on skill development in robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning, deep learning and Python coding, as well as fundamental knowledge of the AI development life cycle, preparing students to address current challenges and future opportunities in the workplace.
