IIM Bangalore to launch AI for managers programme in collaboration with SAP Labs

The AI for Managers Programme aims to equip managers who aspire to become competent decision-makers with the knowledge of AI and its components.

SAP Labs India announced a collaboration with IIM Bangalore to launch the AI for Managers programme, an initiative to make the knowledge of AI and its components, like Statistical Learning, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning, accessible to interested managers who aspire to become competent decision-makers.

The programme commenced on April 22, 2022, and is a 16-month long certification comprising 11 online modular courses stacked together based on their sequence in a learning curve. Each module is enriched with concepts, applications, and case studies to ensure participants learn and apply AI techniques and ML algorithms such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning algorithms to solve problems across various functional management areas. 

Sindhu Gangadharan, SVP, SAP User Enablement & MD, SAP Labs India, said, “At SAP, we believe in continuous learning and offer our colleagues immersive experiences for upskilling, reskilling and new skilling. The AI for managers programme, in partnership with IIM-B, is a step forward in this regard and is designed to upskill our managers in the fast-evolving business landscape. The 16-month programme focuses on an action-oriented approach where SAP colleagues can bring in their current problem statements and explore solutions. As we start with the AI for Managers programme, we are keen to expand this to our developer community, product owners and product managers to become an AI-first organisation.”

Vasanthi Srinivasan, Chairperson, MOOCs and Digital Learning, IIM Bangalore, said, “Research estimates that AI will increase the global GDP by about 1.2% annually by 2030. The programme ‘AI for Managers’ being launched by IIMB is designed to impart industry-ready skills to the participants in AI and ML and enhance computational thinking to solve business problems and facilitate effective decision making.”
