Study contents

Course overview

In your studies for an MBA specialising in Artificial Intelligence, your initial focus will be on general management and business principles. In the later stages of your studies, you’ll dive into the social and economic questions and dilemmas surrounding AI use in business. This way, you’ll build on the managerial knowledge you’ve developed, and be able to better understand how tried and true methods can be implemented in order to successfully navigate new challenges.

On top of these topics, you’ll also explore cognitive processes from a neuroscientific perspective – an essential component in machine learning and AI – and acquire practical work skills by working with various AI tools in a simulated business setting. Upon graduation, you’ll be able to analyse and asses how AI tools work, and which element to utilise according to different business requirements.

Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • IU offers me the opportunity to organise my studies as flexible as possible.

    Isabel Jennemann

    Online student

  • I find data science is an interesting area of science where lots of things have not yet been discovered and development moves fast. That's also why I chose to join the M.Sc. Artificial Intelligence programme which I am currently studying at IU. The programme, tutors, and professors at IU are really accessible. I'm convinced this programme will keep my knowledge current or even create a new trajectory for my career.

  • I am an absolute fan of online exams! Due to my very irregular work schedule, I need this flexibility.
