About the course
Transform complex business challenges into new opportunities with AI and big data.
Investing in the right combination of technology and talent is an ongoing challenge. Today, decision-making at every level of the organization requires staying ahead of advances in data analytics, AI and machine learning.
Rotman's Managing with Machines program provides you with insights from the TD Management Data and Analytics Lab on topics at the forefront of these emerging fields and their current applications. In two days, our expert faculty will help you leverage these to set strategy, adapt your systems and manage talent to solve ever-more complex business challenges.
This course is not technical and does not dive into programming or computer science. However, a familiarity with basic data interpretation will be helpful in our discussions.
With the massive opportunities presented by AI, good leaders know that smart innovation will always involve humans. Pairing human-centric methods with AI tools will be very powerful no matter what your goals are, and we can help you get started. Our program incorporates design thinking to show you how to design AI systems that actually work.
