Elective Option - BUSS6101

Year - 2020

Elective unit option topic: Business Transformation Management through Analytics and Artificial Intelligence This elective is designed for students interested in understanding how to create a successful strategic roadmap in order to lead, seize opportunities, and transform organizational thinking in a digital age. For many years, state-of-the-art strategic thinking has promoted business models and leadership strategy based on competition analysis of close sector rivals, market analytics, as well as traditional human resources processes and talent development. Currently, the impacts of digital transformation are so broad that the most disruptive competition is likely to be external and come from businesses about which executives may have an incomplete understanding. For example, in Finance many traditional organizations (banks) are challenged by small fintech start-ups. Furthermore, businesses at the moment are facing many external uncertainties such as the COVID-19 outbreak crisis. This unit delivers an in-depth understanding of how current business needs can be supported by analytics and AI at the cutting-edge of thinking about the transformative potential of digital technology for tackling contemporary challenges. Students learn how digital transformation (through analytics and AI) can be championed in organisations facing risk and uncertainty. No previous experience in analytics or data science is necessary.
