Queen's University's Smith School of Business has announced plans to launch a Master of Management degree in Artificial Intelligence.
The new program will focus on the management of artificial intelligence tools in business applications, and explore the implications of AI in business decision making.
As AI is applied to an increasing number of business areas, managers will be needed to bridge the gap between the technology and business needs. According to Elspeth Murray, associate dean of master's programs at Smith, "That requires a new kind of professional with a balance of science and management expertise."
"That’s why the Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence is so needed today."
With the new program, Queen's joins a a few other business schools offering programs in the management of AI space. Italy's Bologna Business School, for instance, offers a Master in Digital Technology Management in Artificial Intelligence. Other Europe-based schools offer related programs; Utrecht University offers a Masters in Artificial Intelligence degree, for example.
The new Queen's Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence program will start on the school's downtown Toronto campus in September 2018. The program will be delivered on a part-time basis over the course of 12 months. A GMAT score of 650 or higher is required to apply, and applicants must have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics, Business, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering or Science.
