About this Programme

Artificial intelligence (AI) is already having a major impact across the economy, coursing in short order across the global business environment. To truly understand the potential it holds, you first need to understand how the technology works. The Oxford Artificial Intelligence Programme aims to provide you with a sound framework of this technology: from its history, functionality, and capability, as well as its inherent ethical challenges. Over the course of six short weeks online you’ll develop an informed opinion about AI's applications with insights from University of Oxford faculty. Reflect on the implications and opportunities of AI, and build a business case for its implementation within your unique organizational context.

This programme is designed for managers and business leaders across multiple functions and industries looking to understand the workings and possibilities of AI. It’s also applicable for technical working professionals such as CIOs, IT managers, and business analysts who want to better understand how artificial intelligence can be implemented within their organizations.

You’ll get the opportunity to learn about artificial intelligence online, and develop a foundational understanding of how it works. However, as this is a non-technical programme, you will not be required to code.
