Singularity University (SU), a global community with a mission to educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges, and INSEAD, the business school for the world, today announced a strategic partnership to co-develop a series of intensive, immersive executive learning programs and conduct joint research that will inspire and educate leaders to transform business and society. 

The learning program series, Future of X: Seizing the Opportunity, will define and examine X, the most relevant and pressing issues in technology and the world, the first ‘X’ being artificial intelligence and machine learning. These experiential courses will use multiple modalities including faculty-led activities, hands-on workshops with emerging technologies, and interactive experiences.  
 
Together, INSEAD and SU will create distinct, immersive learning experiences that add to both of our schools’ executive education offerings,” said Peter Zemsky, Deputy Dean and Dean of Innovation at INSEAD. “Upon completion, participants will be equipped with knowledge, new ideas and skills they can immediately use to seize concrete opportunities to drive real change in their organizations and communities.”
 
The series will begin in January 2020 with the first program, The Future of AI: Seizing the Opportunity.  Over four days in Silicon Valley, participants will personally navigate the transformational effects that AI is having on their organization and the world.  Seats will be limited and interested attendees are encouraged to register early at the following link. Executives around the world are encouraged to apply.
 
Leveraging our respective faculty and expertise, INSEAD and SU are uniquely positioned to develop leaders who can drive positive change in the world,” said Kyle Nel, executive vice president of SU’s Uncommon Partners Lab.  “The partnership will provide the global community with cutting-edge content to drive game-changing impact within communities, organizations and industries across the world.”
