The AI Business Innovation certificate is a 12-credit hour offering that introduces learners to concepts in data programming, machine learning, deep learning, and predictive analytics. The certificate does not have programming or mathematical pre-requisites beyond what is required for admission into Robinson’s MBA program. The certificate is designed to provide enough familiarity with AI-related concepts to permit students to think creatively about innovative applications and solutions to business challenges. The Innovation Studios allow students to leverage content from their subject matter courses and form interdisciplinary teams, promoting diversity of thought and allowing for a collision of ideas and concepts. Within the teams, students will learn to design compelling and competitive value propositions, develop viable business models that can profitably fulfill these value propositions, and pitch to prospective customers and investors. ENI 8010 - Innovation Studio 1: Innovation and Design Thinking will focus on areas such as ideation, the business model canvas and customer discovery. Students selecting ENI 8011 - Innovation Studio 2: Launch and Scale will continue working on their prototype, diving deeper into new product development and refining their business plans and pitches. Those wanting more practical depth in applying concepts to structured and unstructured data can take IFI 8430 - Advanced Analytics Experience or FI 8092 - Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Applications in Finance in addition to or in lieu of ENI 8011. The certificate can be completed in 2 or 3 semesters depending on the options selected. The certificate can be taken either stand-alone or students may apply the credits to Robinson’s MBA program or other selected graduate degree programs such as the MS in Data Science and Analytics (Data Science in Business concentration).
