Arizona State University’s business school is launching a Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence in Business degree. Applications for fall 2024 admissions are now being accepted. 

The school announced Monday that the W. P. Carey School of Business will present the first AI graduate degree program from a business school in the United States.

“There is no doubt that AI is quickly becoming a vital business skill. We are excited to meet the needs of students and employers through our new graduate degree program within our top-ranked information systems department,” said Ohad Kadan, Charles J. Robel dean and W. P. Carey distinguished chair in business.

The program will be held on the Tempe campus. It incorporates an applied curriculum and career coaching. 

The degree aims to help students develop technical AI and professional skills needed to thrive in the technology and business world. 

“Students will learn to understand and plan for the implications and possibilities enabled by artificial intelligence, in addition to the importance of governance, ethics and principled innovation,” said Pei-yu Chen, chair of the Department of Information Systems and Red Avenue Foundation professor. Chen also serves as the co-director of the Center for AI and Data Analytics for Business and Society.

Students in the program will learn to analyze diverse business situations and apply AI to further business goals; understand and effectively communicate the impact of AI transformations; practice mindful AI and pay attention to ethics, bias, welfare, privacy and trust; and lead cross-functional conversations and collaboration for effective implementation.

“W. P. Carey has been at the forefront of integrating AI into its academic programs, showcasing a commitment to leadership in AI education and its applications in business,” said Dan Mazzola, faculty director of the MS-ISM program. “The school’s offerings of AI-focused degrees, alongside various AI-related certificates and concentrations, highlight its active role in shaping the conversation around AI and fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in technology.”

W. P. Carey also offers a certificate in artificial intelligence in business. Credit completed in the certificate program can later be transferred toward several W. P. Carey master’s degrees.
