Imperial College Business School Executive Education and Emeritus launch Professional Certificate in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

The 25-week programme, launching on 27 January 2022, offers an interdisciplinary learning experience that will help professionals build in-demand skills to give them a competitive edge in machine learning and artificial intelligence – innovative technologies that are transforming the future of business.

LONDON, 14 December 2021: In response to the growing need for professionals in the fields of machine learning and AI, Imperial College Business School has launched, in partnership with global online education provider Emeritus the Professional Certificate in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. The 25-week online programme will help learners acquire a unique combination of advanced technical expertise and the business acumen to put machine learning and AI into practice – and help them navigate the search for exciting opportunities in these fields.

Each contributing a unique perspective to the programme, Imperial’s Professors Wolfram Wiesemann, Ruth Misener, Christopher Tucci and Senior Teaching Fellow Alex Ribeiro-Castro will help learners develop a comprehensive understanding of machine learning and AI – and verse them in the intricacies that are critical to achieving success in the field.

“Many companies are almost paralysed when it comes to digital transformation. There’s so much happening right now they either don’t know where to begin or how to make the maximum impact with the tools they already have,” says Professor Tucci. “Our programme will prepare professionals to help businesses harness the power of machine learning and AI and understand how they can be leveraged to meet objectives – while also using technology as a source for good in the world.”

“As the impact of machine learning and AI increases, it is critical for businesses to think about how they will leverage these technologies – now and in the future,” says Erin Rosenblatt, Vice President of Professional Certificates at Emeritus. “We at Emeritus are excited to partner once again with Imperial College Business School to help professionals learn the true impact of machine learning and AI and discover opportunities in a dynamic, exciting field. At Emeritus, our mission is to equip today’s leaders with tomorrow’s skills, delivering a world-class, accessible and affordable education to all.”

The Professional Certificate in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence is geared towards professionals in IT, engineering, data and business analytics, as well as recent STEM graduates and academics who want to enter an industry with high career growth potential. The 25-week programme is priced at £3,995, including instruction fees, academic materials and access to online coursework.
