With an aim to make the knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI) and its components such as statistical learning, machine learning, and deep learning accessible to a pool of interested managers who aspire to become competent decision makers, SAP Labs India has collaborated with IIM Bangalore to launch AI for Managers programme.
Commencing from April 22, 2022, it is a 16-month long certification programme comprising 11 online modular courses stacked together based on the order of their sequence in a learning curve. Each module is enriched with concepts, applications, and case studies to ensure participants learn and apply AI techniques and machine learning algorithms such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning algorithms to solve problems across various functional areas of management.
“In order to realise SAP’s vision to help the world run better and support our half a million customers in their journey to become intelligent and sustainable enterprises, it is imperative our workforce remains agile and constantly reinvents itself to fuel unfettered innovation. The AI for Managers programme, in partnership with IIM-B, is a step forward in this regard and is designed to upskill our managers in the fast-evolving business landscape. The programme focuses on action-oriented approach where SAP colleagues can bring in their current problem statements and explore solutions. As we start with the AI for Managers programme, we are keen to expand this to our developer community, Product owners and Product managers in the near future to become an AI-first organisation,” said Sindhu Gangadharan, SVP, SAP User Enablement & MD, SAP Labs India.
"Research estimates that AI will result in increasing the global GDP by about 1.2% annually by 2030. The program 'AI for Managers' being launched by IIMBx is designed to impart industry ready skills to the participants in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning and enhance computational thinking to solve business problems and facilitate effective decision making," added Vasanthi Srinivasan, chairperson, MOOCs and digital learning, IIM Bangalore.
