“I chose Smith School of Business because it has an international reputation for being the most innovative and hands-on when it comes to business education. Smith’s MMAI degree offers a combination of business acumen coupled with cutting-edge technology. The program is structured in such a way that it allows students to not only be exposed to the emerging field of AI with topics in ethics, strategy and business management, but also to apply them on real datasets and influence company policy and business decisions. The program is rigourous, challenging and fast paced, while at the same time being exciting as you’re learning about new technologies and have access to faculty members with strong ties to the top technology firms in Canada. As a graduate of this program, I’m very confident in the skills developed and look forward to applying them in my field of finance. It’s a privilege to be a part of Canada’s most prestigious business school.”
