Artificial Intelligence Track
The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the face of business and radically transforming the way we live, work and communicate today. In recent years, businesses and governments have been increasingly harnessing AI capabilities to address major challenges affecting the society and industry.
First of its kind in Singapore and Southeast Asia, the AI track is a direct response to these growing trends, to groom the next generation of AI talents with the ability to build AI tools, and implement adaptive closed loop solutions for a myriad of business problems.
The Master of IT in Business (AI) is an intensive programme with 2 options for completion:
Full-time candidature :
A MINIMUM OF 1 YEAR TO A MAXIMUM OF 2 YEARS
Part-time candidature :
A minimum of 2 years to a maximum of 4 years
Students can switch between these 2 modes of candidature at any time, but the change can only be made once.
The MITB programme runs its academic year based on that of the Singapore Management University, which operates on 3 regular terms comprising 10 study weeks, and 2 special terms of 5 study weeks. Some courses may include an additional week to administer examinations.
MITB class sessions are 3 hours long, and are conducted in a highly interactive, seminar-styled manner. Class sessions combine lectures with discussions, hands-on lab sessions, problem-solving practice classes, and group work. Through our pedagogy, students have the opportunity to interact closely with faculty, full-time professional hires (instructors) and student teaching assistants. In addition, students also meet with industry experts who share their experiences and perspectives through regular seminars organised by the MITB (AI) programme.
All classes are held either on weekday evenings from 7pm onwards, Saturday mornings from 8.15am onwards, or Saturday afternoons from 12pm onwards. These timings have been chosen to accommodate the schedules of part-time students who are working, and full-time students who might be engaged with industry attachments.
The MITB curriculum has its courses classified into the following series:
Course modules listed are subject to change.
Students must complete and pass a total of 15 Course Units (CUs) with a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 to graduate with the MITB degree.
