Bengaluru, India – November 8, 2022: Infosys (NSE, BSE, NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced a global collaboration with Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management (Kellogg).
Through this collaboration, Infosys and Kellogg will collaborate to accelerate Artificial Intelligence (AI)-centered education for Infosys employees. Infosys and Kellogg have signed a three-year agreement to upskill more than 600 Infoscions working on AI-related projects with advanced AI frameworks through the ’AI Applications for Growth’ course, with a vision to add real-time value to client projects.
‘AI Applications for Growth’ is a customized and immersive eight-week course that will upskill Infosys employees globally, while bolstering their capabilities to both identify and solve client problems in an agile and innovative manner. The course will be conducted in two modules every year, and will include capstone projects, peer learning discussions, live and interactive teaching, hands-on exercises, active feedback sessions, and weekly assignments based on real-time client engagements. The program covers AI frameworks such as AI radar, AI Canvas, and AI capability maturity model across more than 20 industries and will offer a certificate from Kellogg School of Management.
Prof. Mohan Sawhney, the Associate Dean for Digital Innovation and the McCormick Foundation Professor of Technology at Kellogg, said, “This collaboration represents the future of executive education and capability development in two ways. First, it is a true omnichannel learning experience that blends asynchronous and synchronous modalities. Second, it combines the benefits of an open enrollment executive program where participants can learn from peers from other industries, with the benefits of custom executive education through the Infosys-specific live sessions and capstone projects overseen by Kellogg faculty. We are excited to co-create this innovative initiative with Infosys.”
Commenting on the collaboration, Balakrishna D. R (Bali), Executive Vice President – Global Head AI and Automation and ECS, Infosys, said, ” We are delighted to commence this engagement with the Kellogg School of Management.
