Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Management Initiative

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.

Research areas

The initiative conducts academic research on AI in business, encompassing both qualitative studies of managerial practice and quantitative studies using large datasets. Areas of research include:

  • AI skills and the labor market
  • Industrial automation and its impact
  • Development and use of AI in companies, especially in Europe
  • Future of work and organizations
