This online program from the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) challenges common misconceptions surrounding AI and will equip and encourage you to embrace AI as part of a transformative toolkit. With a focus on the organizational and managerial implications of these technologies, rather than on their technical aspects, you’ll leave this course armed with the knowledge and confidence you need to pioneer its successful integration in business.

What is artificial intelligence (AI)? What does it mean for business? And how can your company take advantage of it? This online program, designed by the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will help you answer these questions.

Through an engaging mix of introductions to key technologies, business insights, case examples, and your own business-focused project, your learning journey will bring into sharp focus the reality of central AI technologies today and how they can be harnessed to support your business needs.

Focusing on key AI technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics, the course will help you understand the implications of these new technologies for business strategy, as well as the economic and societal issues they raise. MIT expert instructors examine how artificial intelligence will complement and strengthen our workforce rather than just eliminate jobs. Additionally, the program will emphasize how the collective intelligence of people and computers together can solve business problems that not long ago were considered impossible.

You will receive a certificate of course completion at the conclusion of this course. You may also be interested in our Executive Certificates which are designed around a central themed track and consist of several courses. Learn more.

This 6-week online program presents you with a foundational understanding of where we are today with AI and how we got here. The focus is on three key AI technologies: machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics. You’ll gain a practical introduction to these key AI technologies and their business implications, equipping you with the knowledge and the confidence you need to transform your organization by converting uncertainties regarding AI into impactful opportunities for business growth.

The program does not assume any particular technological background – you’ll focus on the organizational and managerial implications of these technologies and how they can be applied in the workplace, rather than on their technical dimensions. A key element of the course will be an individual project where you develop a plan for how AI could be used in your own organization or some other business context of your choice.
