The Schneider School of Business & Economics at St. Norbert College and Advancing AI Wisconsin (AAIW) are teaming up to offer a new seminar series designed for business leaders, innovator and change agents whose industries are being challenged by the rapid pace of technology advances.
Called the Digital Transformation Series, the sessions aim to build a solid understanding of how new technologies impact industries so leaders can create value and shape the future of their organizations.

We are thrilled to launch this groundbreaking series in partnership with St. Norbert College to help ensure that Wisconsin is not left behind in this wave of technological change.”
