Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Management Initiative
The Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Management Initiative is a multidisciplinary project that will look at how artificial intelligence is impacting management, and will prepare executives to put Al to use in their companies in an ethical and socially responsible way.
Artificial intelligence, like electricity a century ago, is a general purpose technology that will touch every sphere of economic activity. That places new demands on managers to adapt to the changing competitive landscape, to transform their organizations, and to ensure that employees – and themselves — have the skills required. IESE’s new Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Management Initiative will meet those growing needs for research and education.
The initiative conducts academic research on AI in business, encompassing both qualitative studies of managerial practice and quantitative studies using large datasets.
The AI Initiative works intensely to put IESE’s humanistic vision of business based on the well-being of people – from customers and suppliers to employees and fellow managers – at the heart of the transformation of our economies.
We envision a world where the benefits of AI are widely shared, the transformation of jobs and businesses humanely managed, and ethical issues addressed efficiently and fairly.
