Executive Certificates

An Executive Certificate from MIT Sloan is an opportunity to take a deep dive into the topics that matter to you most. It’s a formal recognition of your professional development. And, as many executives attest, it can be a significant catalyst in your career. Hone in on fundamental skills, get up to speed on timely business topics, or tailor your certificate to address specific challenges you face. Simply select your track, choose your courses, and start earning your certificate on a schedule of your own design.

Executive Certificates are offered in three tracks:

  • Management and Leadership
  • Strategy and Innovation
  • Technology, Operations, and Value Chain Management

Certificates are earned by completing four programs, with at least three of those programs coming from your chosen track. You have up to four years to earn your certificate, but because courses in our portfolio are often scheduled consecutively, it’s possible to earn a certificate in as few as two weeks. At least one of the four programs must be attended in person rather than online. With more than 50 courses in our portfolio, there are literally hundreds of possible combinations that can meet these certificate requirements.

Calvin Dalton, Afghanistan Country Lead and Program Manager, BAE Systems

MIT Sloan’s Executive Education programs are unique ... They don’t mirror other programs, they have their own methods, they use their own resources and research. They enlist incredible faculty and thought leaders. And the short courses work for a lot of people who can’t take weeks or months off at a time. It means the classes are very diverse, filled with unique, global perspectives.

I’m not naïve about what my MIT Sloan Executive Certificates have done for me. In addition to the skills and frameworks you can acquire, it’s important to realize that the reputation of MIT Sloan is very meaningful in the business world.

Joanne Markow, Co-Founder and Partner, GreenMason

I chose MIT Sloan because it values a multidisciplinary approach, blending topics like neuroscience, leadership, IoT and AI strategies, marketing analytics, and business process design. It’s also important for me to see and learn from other women within technology and in strategic leadership roles solving tomorrow’s issues. I met some amazing female leaders in these classes.
