Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced a new collaboration with Executive Education at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management (Kellogg) to further advance the technology strategy and combine EY industry experience in artificial intelligence with a world-class learning institution.

The AI Applications for Growth certificate program from Kellogg will equip EY leadership and senior partners with foundational knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and provide a deep dive into how AI is impacting businesses across the enterprise value chain. The goal of this strategic investment is to strengthen the position of the EY organization as a thought leader and consultative advisor of choice to clients that seek to take advantage of these rapidly evolving technologies.

“As our clients work to embrace the next wave of artificial intelligence, it reinforces our strong belief that continuous learning and upskilling are essential to our organization and our clients. Fundamental education on the full potential of AI combined with our deep industry experience positions us to effectively guide our clients through their transformation journeys as they assess the opportunities, impact and risks AI will have on their businesses and customers,” says Janet Truncale, EY Americas Financial Services Organization Vice Chair and Regional Managing Partner.

Throughout the customized nine-week learning experience, EY US leaders will be immersed in a wide range of case studies, hands-on exercises, and discussions with AI experts and other leaders and will complete a capstone project where they will apply emerging AI technologies to real business challenges.

“For forward-looking organizations, AI is at the top of the C-suite agenda. We created this program to help leaders and organizations understand the landscape of AI and generative AI and to develop strategies for unlocking business value and creating competitive advantage in their industry,” said Dr. Mohanbir Sawhney, Associate Dean for Digital Innovation at Kellogg, and the principal faculty of the program.

Kellogg and EY US are committed to keeping the program updated as the technologies and innovations within AI continue to shift, guaranteeing that EY US leadership remains at the leading edge of these advancements.
