Many industries across the globe are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to increase business value, optimise operations, improve overall revenue, and utilise the workforce more efficiently. Despite the opportunities brought by AI, a trusted ecosystem is crucial to adopting AI technologies in a balanced approach that facilitates AI innovation and safeguards consumer interests. The skills and knowledge required to take AI applications and innovations to transform business and ensure inclusive and equitable benefits and mitigation of risks are evolving and becoming more interdisciplinary. To effectively take advantage of AI and overcome the difficulties posed by its application, business leaders must develop a practical understanding of AI.

The Graduate Certificate in Artificial Intelligence for Business takes the “X + AI” approach. It equips business professionals from different industry sectors and non-IT functions with relevant AI knowledge and skills to apply and use AI in their respective job roles. The curriculum was designed around real business opportunities and challenges that can be solved through AI and Machine Learning (ML) technologies. Students will examine the current state of important AI technologies and how they may be utilised to support their business needs through an engaging mix of introduction to key technology, business insights and case studies. Graduates will harness the power of AI to enable their organisations to deliver more relevant, personalised, and innovative products and services.

Compulsory Courses (15 cu)

The programme takes the “X + AI” approach, which equips learners from industry sectors and non-IT functions with relevant AI knowledge and skills to apply and use AI in their respective job roles. The program does not assume any technological background.

Our prospective learners are business executives who want to know how different types of AI and ML technologies could help solve their business problems, such as fostering innovation, accelerating product development or market differentiation; business leaders with strategic decision-making responsibilities, including prospective managers, current managers, and high-level executives, who are interested in leveraging AI; or business analyst who wants to deepen their tech skills in AI to stay relevant and future ready.

The courses are designed to equip students with skills to uncover the possibilities of applying AI to address real-life business challenges and enhance organisation performance. Students will be able to facilitate the production of scalable and optimised AI and machine learning models, extract and integrate data from various sources, transform large volumes of real-time unstructured data into actionable business insights and provide incremental business value as well as compelling and logically structured communication materials to facilitate stakeholder buy-in. The programme is geared towards the training of AI and Machine Learning professionals.
