HWZ offers study program on AI in the financial sector

Zurich – Starting this fall, the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (HWZ) is offering a part-time continuing education course on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the financial sector. The CAS AI in Finance is aimed at specialists and managers in banks and insurance companies.

Thanks to artificial intelligence, the financial industry is facing the most productive decade "since the replacement of the typewriter", writes the HWZ in a press release. It aims to enable specialists and managers to "smartly and efficiently tap into the diverse potential of AI in combination with traditional approaches". To this end, the HWZ will be offering the CAS AI in Finance starting in the fall.

In the part-time continuing education course, students can learn the skills to use artificial intelligence in all areas of banking and insurance. On the one hand, technical expertise is imparted, for example on generative and classic AI, data analysis and its visualization as well as process automation. On the other hand, the 16-day program trains participants to make strategic decisions.

In addition to the CAS AI in Finance, the HWZ also offers a range of other courses on the use of artificial intelligence. "Our AI training is structured as a modular step-by-step concept," says Patrick Comboeuf, Head of the CAS AI in Finance HWZ program, in the press release. "From the CAS to the Master's degree (MAS) in Digital Excellence HWZ, participants shape their own career path in the financial industry." ce/hs
