Universities need to align curriculums based on new market demands to equip graduates for the cutting-edge jobs of the future. In Business Administration Management education, AI, data science, and cloud computing are becoming increasingly critical skill areas for popular careers such as financial advisor, marketer, human resource manager, or management consultant.
To overcome this challenge, AUS recognized the need to enhance its Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BSBA)
and Master’s in International Business Administration (MIBA)
programs and specializations with the latest technologies and resources by joining the IBM Academic Initiative. AUS is proud to collaborate with IBM’s experts in the areas of curriculum development, skills, and academic research. AUS students have access to certification training programs, tutorials, and practical business use cases based on open standards and IBM technologies in critical strategic areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Data Science, Automatization, Cloud computing, and Cybersecurity. In addition, access is provided to the IBM Design Thinking framework
to support a customer-centered mindset prepared to manage a business world filled with uncertainty and challenges.
Students don’t just need to learn data science and technical skills; they need to apply them to solve complex real business problems. Programs offered by the IBM Academic Initiative allow faculty members and students to work on real business cases and projects with IBM cloud platform resources. Upon successful course completion, faculty and students can receive certificates known as IBM digital badges.
