BIMTECH has launched a "Two-year full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Management [PGDM] in Artificial Intelligence & Data Science."
Global markets are experiencing an upsurge in demand for AI-trained professionals, prompting leading Indian IT firms to initiate training for over 4 lakh workers in AI-centric roles. Responding to this industry imperative, Birla Institute of Management Technology (BIMTECH) has launched a "Two-year full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Management [PGDM] in Artificial Intelligence & Data Science." This program seeks to merge artificial intelligence and data science technology with managerial subjects across various domains, fostering collaboration between industry and academia on national and global scales. Its goal is to shape a cadre of Management professionals equipped with technical prowess, analytical acumen, and proficient decision-making skills.
This rigorous 24-month curriculum will equip graduates to spearhead cutting-edge AI initiatives in finance, education, automotive, retail, entertainment, cybersecurity, and environmental sustainability. They will engage in diverse projects, from managing financial portfolios to devising smart logistics systems and crafting e-commerce recommender systems using AI. The widespread adoption of AI, anticipated by 75% of companies, is predicted to spur job growth but also lead to high turnover, as noted by 50% of organizations.
Dr. Harivansh Chaturvedi, Director of BIMTECH, highlighted that India's demand for AI and Data Science professionals is forecasted to surpass 1 million by 2024, with a current 51% shortfall in supply.
