Microsoft Opens an AI Business School For Non-Tech Execs

VentureBeat reports that the courses “will include tools for things like evaluating a business’ AI maturity level to understand what’s required to successfully implement AI.” Azizirad pointed out that there’s much written about how AI will transform jobs, but much less so about how it will impact “enterprises and organizations.”

“AI Business School was born with this goal of helping business leaders drive AI transformation in their [companies], but also to redefine their role as leaders,” she said. Microsoft just completed a survey among business leaders considering implementation of AI; they “ranked motivating and inspiring employees as their first investment priority while growing their use of AI.”

The school’s strategy module was built in partnership with INSEAD, “a graduate business school with campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.” With regard to culture and responsibility, the school focuses on data, since “companies that successfully embrace AI need to openly share data across departments and business functions.”

Finally, “building trust also comes from developing and deploying AI systems in a responsible manner, an area that Microsoft’s market research has found resonates with business leaders.” The school “showcases Microsoft’s own work in this area.”
