This programme is taught in partnership with ESIEA,a French engineering school specialised in digital science and technology.
In this data-driven age, managers must become analytical and scientific in their approach. They must be able to understand data and analyse it. Due to the complexity of large amounts of data, managers have no choice but to resort to visual abstraction for their decision making: data visualisation (or visual data analysis).
The aim of this programme is to train these managers in visual analysis techniques and to respond to a pressing need in companies: to train managers capable of understanding and developing AI and of finding new solutions within companies.
Our hybrid programme will enable engineering, business or other students with international backgrounds to have multidisciplinary teamwork skills, excellent interpersonal skills, a great curiosity for projects, an ability to develop and to solve technical problems and to understand and develop managerial projects strongly involved with AI.
