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 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 and Operations

Certificates are earned by completing four courses totaling at least 8 Executive Education Units (EEUs), with at least three of the four coming from your chosen certificate track. Although online programs can be used toward an Executive Certificate, at least one course must be attended in person or live online.

While you have up to four years to earn your Executive Certificate, it’s possible to meet the requirements in just three weeks. And with more than 90 courses in our portfolio, there are literally hundreds of possible combinations that can meet these certificate requirements.

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.
