ASU Business School Launches New AI Degree Program

The W.P. Carey School of Business introduces innovative new graduate degree for AI in business


Following ASU’s groundbreaking announcement of the first university collaboration with OpenAI, the W. P. Carey School of Business is officially launching a new degree program — the Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence in Business (MS-AIB). Backed by faculty from the Department of Information Systems, it is 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 departments,” said Ohad Kadan, Charles J. Robel Dean and W.P. Carey Distinguished Chair in Business.

The new W.P. Carey MS-AIB program incorporates an applied curriculum and career coaching to prepare graduates for success in emerging roles across industries. Taught by world-renowned faculty, the MS-AIB degree develops technical AI and professional skills needed to thrive in the constantly evolving landscape of technology and business.

New master’s degree allows students to lead what’s next

The goal of the program is to equip leaders with a business-aligned framework and strategies for implementing AI – delivering both technical skills and business skills to design, deploy, and apply AI mindfully in diverse business contexts. The program begins in the fall of 2024 on ASU’s Tempe campus.

“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 innovations,” explained Pei-yu Chen, chair of the Department of Information Systems and Red Avenue Foundation Professor. Chen is also the co-director of the Center for AI and Data Analytics for Business and Society.

W.P. Carey additionally has a continuing education Certificate in Artificial Intelligence in Business, allowing learners to train in the mechanics of this cutting-edge technology, design intelligent systems, learn how to harness these systems mindfully for value creation, and how to embed them into business to transform organizational strategy and revolutionize business processes and operations. Credit completed in the certificate program can later be transferred towards several W.P. Carey master’s degrees.
