Adtalem Global Education and Northeastern University Form Strategic Partnership

Collaboration includes launch of new certificate in Artificial
Intelligence for the financial services sector

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#WeAreAdtalemlt;/agt;–Adtalem Global Education, a global educator and workforce solutions
provider (NYSE: ATGE), and Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim
School of Business, a thought leader in navigating the complexities of
digital convergence and Artificial Intelligence (AI), have signed a
strategic alliance agreement. Through their partnership, Adtalem and
D’Amore-McKim will bring new products and services to the marketplace,
leveraging subject matter expertise and content from Northeastern, and
global distribution channels and financial services education and
certification expertise from Adtalem.

The first offering to launch under the partnership is a certificate
course on AI for Financial Services. AI thought leaders and expert
finance and technology practitioners will design and teach the course to
provide financial services professionals with a solid understanding of
AI and its applications in financial services. The course will also give
business professionals the ability to assess AI readiness within their
organization and the tools to become AI champions capable of addressing
specific business needs.

Available in summer of 2019, the course will launch in online,
on-demand, self-paced options and is designed to be completed within
8–10 hours over 2–4 weeks, culminating in a certificate of completion.
The course also can be tailored to corporate clients with facilitated
sessions and expert faculty members.

“The Artificial Intelligence for Financial Services course is a unique
professional education offering in the U.S. market,” said Lisa Wardell,
president and CEO of Adtalem. “We are pleased to partner with
Northeastern University as a major thought leader consistently at the
forefront of AI, and to expand this partnership into other academic
areas and industries.”

“Through our deep relationships with leaders in the financial services
industry, we know there is a profound need, not only for foundational
knowledge of AI, but also its applications and capabilities in daily
business operations,” said Mehul Patel, group president, professional
education at Adtalem. “The Artificial Intelligence for Financial
Services course will provide the knowledge necessary for organizational
decision makers to make informed choices about their use of AI and the
efficiencies it can bring.”

The banking and financial services industry is at the forefront of AI
adoption, using AI to improve the accuracy of credit scoring, fraud
detection, personal budgeting and algorithmic stock trading and giving
rise to robo-advisers, chat-bots, and machine underwriters. As
automation continues to drive efficiencies in quantitative functions,
companies and organizations will look to reskill employees into higher
value, more qualitative roles.

“Breakthrough technologies, including artificial intelligence, offer the
promise of higher productivity, enhanced efficiencies, and economic
growth,” says Raj Echambadi, the D’Amore-McKim Dunton Family Dean at
Northeastern University. “They are changing the way we live, learn,
produce, and consume content, as well as how employees and enterprises
work across all industries. Advanced business education will be a
critical component in helping people and industries navigate challenges
with digital convergence and turn them into opportunities.”

Adtalem’s financial services portfolio currently consists of several
organizations with a range of professional education products and
services, including: the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering
Specialists (ACAMS), its CAMS certification is one of the most widely
recognized anti-money laundering certifications among compliance
professionals worldwide; Becker Professional Education, which offers
programs in CPA Exam Review and continuing professional education
courses; and EduPristine, one of India’s leading training providers in
accounting, finance and digital marketing.

The course will be available through Becker Professional Education and
ACAMS, which will issue certificates of completion in partnership with
the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. For more information on the AI for
