A Strategy for Integrating Artificial Intelligence Technology into a Graduate Business Curriculum
Education and Computing
There is much evidence that artificial intelligence technology is beginning to emerge from the research lab and move into business computer-based systems. Applications of artificial intelligence in business in the areas of finance, manufacturing, and software development and data management, are increasing. Since graduate programs in business attempt to provide students with background in, and experience with computer-based modeling, it is important that universities anticipate and plan for the integration of artificial intelligence technology into the Master's degree in Business Administration (MBA) program.
The purpose of this paper is two-fold. First, a framework for integrating artificial intelligence applications and methodology into the curriculum of a graduate business program is presented. Second, an implementation strategy is discussed and detailed examples are given.
