​Programme outline

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.

​Students acquire skills:

  • Contemporary AI challenges and opportunities for organisations

  • Machine learning and advanced AI programming in Python

  • Data science programming with R

  • AI infrastructure: data management, big data, cloud computing, cyber security, etc.

  • Business intelligence, management of AI, ethics and project management

  • Data science and AI projects with real data and real companies

  • Business-oriented research projects with AI

  • Soft skills: relational, multidisciplinary team management and communication, creativity, innovation in solutions
