AI at Kogod

At Kogod, we're not afraid to make bold decisions.

That's why we are incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) into our curriculum, our operations, and our philosophy. It's why we are constantly bringing industry leaders to campus to share their technical expertise and practical know-how. And it's how we are building the future of business education at Kogod.

Skills

The job market demands AI skills. We're providing them.

Every Kogod student gets the training and tools to be able to excel in their discipline—to code a program, build a beautiful presentation, analyze a data set, build a website, or do financial analysis—all using AI.

Mindset

Agility and adaptability are key.

AI is here to stay, and Kogod knows it's vital for its students, faculty, and staff to stay ahead of the curve. As technology changes, so do we. That's why we regularly provide faculty and staff with trainings, workshops, and opportunities to engage with AI leaders across industries.

Expertise

Scholar-teachers are leading the way.

From supply-chain management to digital marketing, every business sector and industry is changing because of AI. Our faculty across programs comprise both industry-leading practitioners and cutting-edge researchers who apply AI inside and outside the classroom.

Our AI courses fall into two main categories.

While AI is incorporated into every subject that is part of the core Kogod curriculum, certain classes have a more distinct focus on AI than others. Through AI Sage and AI Artisan courses, students have the opportunity to learn about the practical applications of AI tools while gaining an understanding of the fundamental challenges and ethical complexities that come with their proliferation.

AI Sage: In Practice

These courses focus on the use of AI in a specific context, including hands-on projects, labs, and case studies where students will apply AI to real-world problems. From courses like Foundations of Digital Marketing to AI in Entertainment, these classes will teach you practical tools of the trade. 

Some additional Sage course titles include:

  • Predictive Analytics
  • Text Mining
  • Python Programming
  • Advanced Forensic Accounting

AI Artisan: In Concept

These courses, less technical than AI Sage courses, incorporate AI as a significant discussion point or theoretical foundation of the class. From courses like Sustainability and Technology to Consumer Behavior, these classes will teach you how to think about AI in different business contexts. 

Some additional Artisan course titles include:

  • Negotiations
  • Marketing and Communications for Business
  • Managing the Digital Organization
  • Principles of Marketing
