A unique programme taught by both a business and an engineering school
This programme trains professionals who understand the inner workings of AI, its capabilities and limits as well as understanding the meaningful creation of value for organisations.
Half of the courses are delivered by
our partner ESIEA (“engineering school of the digital world”); these mainly focus on
AI algorithms, computer programming, and IT infrastructure for AI. The other half are delivered by SKEMA professors, mainly focussing on the
management of AI and applied projects in data science and AI with our industry partners such as Microsoft.
Some students in this programme have an engineering background but seek to be trained to meet the specific challenges of managing AI; others have solid managerial training or experience and seek technical skills to truly understand AI. We also welcome students who do not match either of these profiles, but who are highly motivated self-learners with a genuine interest in both the technical and managerial aspects of AI.
We equip students with the practical technical skills and the critical managerial competencies to become effective leaders in the exciting, ever-changing world that AI offers.
This MSc is a full-time programme with eight months of courses followed by work experience or a research project.
By joining an MSc, students obtain a master of science degree and the "Diploma of Specialised Studies in International Management" (DESMI), a degree approved by France's Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (master's level).
