Schulich Celebrates Launch of Master of Management in AI
Schulich hosted a Program Launch and Networking Social last week to officially kick off their new Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence (MMAI) program. The new program, which begins in September 2019, is a 12-month career-focused degree that combines a broad range of advanced AI applications with business skills. The program is specifically designed to meet the growing need for talented professionals with the skills and advanced applied knowledge to develop, evaluate, refine and implement AI-related applications and technologies.
Before the panel discussion, Murat Kristal, Program Director of the MMAI Program held a brief information session to provide more insight into this innovative program.
“The Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence will provide students with coding skills and a much-needed business perspective,” shared Professor Kristal. “You will be pushed to your limits, but you will become an AI expert in the end.”
