Over the last few years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been emerging as the most transformative and significant technology, with recent advancements in the field proving to be a game-changer for several industries. In the coming years, proliferation of AI is only going to increase, with businesses tailoring their core processes and strategies to get an added advantage of AI’s many capabilities. In this scenario, it has become imperative for business leaders to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field and understand AI in business applications.

However, there are several senior professionals in managerial and leadership roles who don’t have a background in programming. With constantly emerging technologies, cut-throat competition and the need to achieve a competitive edge to know how AI can help in their business processes has made it imperative for business leaders to gain an understanding of the subject. This is why Great Learning, an ed-tech company that offers programs in career critical competencies, has introduced a revolutionary post-graduate program - Artificial Intelligence for Leaders, in association with the University of Texas at Austin.


The course was launched in November, keeping in mind the needs of senior professionals in managerial and leadership roles who want to leverage the power of AI in decision making and to help them understand the power of AI without getting deep into the programming bit.


The online program will focus on applications and use-cases using practical examples and case studies. There will be coverage of the concepts that make up machine learning and artificial intelligence, which will help participants develop an intuitive understanding without too much emphasis on deep technical details.


“Our current cohort of learners has an average work experience of 18 years with a significant number of CXOs, AVPs, and Directors from leading MNCs, who all come with a set of unique expectations from the program. The companies represented in the program include Oracle, GE, Verizon, Cisco, TCS, Indian Navy and many more. Since Artificial Intelligence is seen as a game-changer to drive new business models and transform workplaces, these mid and senior leaders are keenly interested in familiarising themselves with it. The increasingly engaged participation and inquisitive queries from senior professionals are indicative of the growing criticality of AI in the current business scenario,” Hari Krishnan Nair, Co-founder, Great Learning, said.

The program also offers the participants immersive experiential learning of AI from a business leader's perspective with sessions conducted by senior academicians and industry leaders who are at the forefront of implementing AI and Machine Learning at their respective organisations.


Spread over 15 weeks, the course will give candidates a 360-degree view of the basics, benefits, application, problem areas, solutions etc of AI. This is what the course structure looks like:
