From Buzzword to Boardroom: Using Generative AI to Accelerate Growth

AI will not take your job A professional using AI, however, will take the job of someone NOT using AI. Generative AI is the single most transformative technology to affect knowledge workers in history. It is vital to learn artificial intelligence and its role in business, specifically how you can adopt AI for business practices, efficiencies, and ideas. 

Early adopters of AI for business have seen immense, well-documented improvements in productivity, quality of work, and job satisfaction across a wide range of functional roles and industries. Functions such as marketing, sales, customer support, finance, supply chain, product management, corporate IT, software development, and strategy are seeing significant impact across use cases from practitioners learning Generative AI.

In addition, because of Generative AI, white-collar professionals’ productivity is skyrocketing, from automated presentation development to creating high-quality first drafts of emails, meeting summaries, project plans, and operations reviews, as well as creating time-saving summaries of research reports, long articles, podcasts, and beyond. Our Generative AI program and artificial intelligence business course set you up to be the person who not only uses AI but thrives professionally from the skills and tools learning AI provides.
