About the studies
The Bachelor in Management & Artificial Intelligence is a 3-year undergraduate program conducted fully in English.
The program is a rare, but very necessary combination of insightful management knowledge with programming skills and data analytics.
The studies are aimed at educating more and more managers demanded on the labor market, who simultaneously have:
- business skills
- knowledge of new technologies, in particular AI, and their impact on society
- knowledge of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research methods
- programming competencies (programming in several languages, strong emphasis on Python and R)
- knowledge of machine learning techniques used in business
The studies are run only in full-time mode.
In November 2022 the first technological student club at Kozminski University was established. Kozminski AI Club is run by a group of young enthusiasts fascinated by the world of rapidly developing technology.
Our goal is to provide a space for curious students to develop their technical skills through real-life projects, educational materials, and exchanges with like-minded individuals. In addition to learning and growing as a community, we also aim to give back to the tech industry by hosting networking events, guest lectures, and providing tech support for founders with amazing ideas for startups.
From the second semester on, students will work in groups on a start-up or implementation project under the supervision of KU specialists.
During the studies a module on artificial intelligence is implemented, thanks to which students acquire skills in the field of programming and machine learning as well as their use in business.
During their studies, students obtain a certificate which states that they completed a Python programming course, and a certificate of obtaining a basic course in machine learning.
The program offers a lot of freedom in developing the students' interests by offering elective courses aimed at deepening their interests.
Students have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with theories that give a deeper understanding of the ongoing technological revolution and the related social and business changes.
In addition, students will master the tools for multidimensional analysis of the digitalization processes, and will acquire the skills necessary to identify, acquire, store and analyze data of a large volume (Big Data).
Partners of the program
The program is run in cooperation with industry strategic partners, which guarantee that its contents are up to date with the demands of the current job market. Additionally, the partners always provide access to the newest technologies connected to artificial intelligence and programming.

A word from the leader and coordinator of the program
The future will not wait for us, we have to start shaping it ourselves. Our course is conceived as a well-balanced "mix" of management subjects, as well as data science and artificial intelligence. It includes both strictly analytical subjects related to programming in various languages and machine learning, as well as the basics of management and business. We want to share with you our passion for artificial intelligence, but at the same time prepare you well for functioning in organizations of the future.
Prof. Aleksandra Przegalińska, Ph.D., Vice-Rector for International Relations and ESR, Leader of the Bachelor in Management & Artificial Intelligence Program
The Bachelor in Management & Artificial Intelligence program offers a unique opportunity to understand the ways to innovate for the future in the unpredictable business environment. This is delivered through explaining not only academic socio-technological concepts but first and foremost through designing practical business solutions.
Our students can immediately put their knowledge into action thanks to top-notch external partnerships with companies such as Huawei, Oracle, or Microsoft. The focus is on value creation and making an impact by providing our students with skills and attitudes to flourish in future-proof companies.
