Business and artificial intelligence come together in new program


Demand for specialized business programs in new technologies has been increasing all over the world, especially in cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology behind them. Rebecca Guy, an associate at Scotiabank Global Capital Markets, went back to school to learn a second language. But she's not trying to become fluent in French, Italian or Mandarin. Last September, the 24-year-old started the master of management in artificial intelligence (MMAI) program at Smith School of Business in Kingston to help her become as savvy in new technologies as in business. "I found the program because one day I found myself becoming so frustrated working on a project with a team because I felt like I only understood half of the puzzle," recalls Ms. Guy.
