Additionally, the partnership will also offer an executive programme titled "Leading Business Transformation in the Age of AI" at the B-School's campus. The programme will equip business leaders with tools and strategies to transform their respective organizations to AI-driven organizations.
Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, Indian School of Business and the Novartis Professor of Marketing Strategy and Innovation, said, “Business Schools are attempting to redefine management education by making it more future-ready and relevant for opportunities and challenges that businesses will face in the future. Transforming organizations guided by Artificial Intelligence and augmented by frameworks integrating analytics with human behavior and management issues will be an important imperative for business leaders.”
