MIT Sloan Executive Education—Innovation@Work
In today’s increasingly complex business world, leaders must be innovative, entrepreneurial, and global, in both thought and action. At the MIT Sloan School of Management, our executive programs combine innovation and entrepreneurship with strategic thinking and global leadership, providing senior executives and high-potential managers with the critical skills required to create and lead successful organizations. Our portfolio of executive programs reflects MIT Sloan’s core mission—to develop principled, innovative leaders and to generate ideas that advance management practice.
The MIT Edge
MIT Sloan is uniquely positioned at the intersection of technology and business practice, and participants in our programs gain access to MIT’s distinctive blend of intellectual capital and practical, hands-on learning. They are exposed to the best of today’s thought leadership and take away the tools and frameworks needed to drive innovation and growth within their own organizations. From technology strategy to system dynamics to financial engineering, we offer cutting-edge programs that reflect our faculty expertise and the School’s research distinction. All programs are taught by full-time MIT faculty—leading management experts and sought-after business consultants—in an environment designed to foster extensive interaction and peer-to-peer exchanges.
MIT Sloan Executive Education works with select organizations to provide custom executive programs focused on advancing the strategic objectives of the individual organization. Custom engagements are a collaborative effort between MIT Sloan faculty and senior leaders in the organization. Programs emphasize actionable learning—the application of theory in practice—and combine core business skills and technical knowledge with innovative leadership training.
Executive Certificates are awarded to participants who have completed four or more open enrollment programs within a four-year period. Executive Certificates are offered in three areas of concentration and provide executives with the opportunity to tailor their education plans to suit their own career development needs. To qualify for each certificate, participants must complete three programs from their chosen track, along with any other executive program.
