The advent of generative AIs such as ChatGPT has brought a wave of disruption to all industries, education is not an exception. Educators world-wide have been actively discussing, brainstorming and experimenting short-term actions and long-term strategies to deal with the impact of generative AIs. Unfortunately, as generative AI is a relatively new technology, very few research papers are seen in literature talking about the effectiveness of such actions or strategies.

In this paper, we present a series of changes made on an analytics course in the Business School of National University of Singapore, including redefining teaching objectives, changing teaching philosophy and changing assessment methods. Survey conducted on students showed positive feedback on such changes. Generative AIs help business students overcome the steep learning curve of programming and strengthen their confidence in using R to perform analytics tasks. Students could focus more on developing skills to understand data, address business concerns, and communicate analytics results. However, we also observed that students might over-rely on generative AI to solve problems they faced, thus lost their own judgement and analysis capabilities. A series of suggestions are proposed to avoid such AI traps.
