Business Insights for a Rapidly Changing World

MIT Management Executive Education

MIT Sloan Executive Education’s non-degree executive programs are led by senior MIT Sloan faculty and provide a targeted and flexible means to future-proof your career. Fueled by faculty research and aided by cutting-edge technology, our offerings include more than 55 in-person and online courses offered throughout the year, as well as custom programs for organizations, Executive Certificates, and our flagship five-week Advanced Management Program. 

Now Offering Live Online Courses

MIT Sloan Executive Education is now offering the majority of our upcoming courses as live online programs, to ensure professionals around the world have access to essential business insights during this time of social distancing. Taught by the same faculty who teach in our on-campus programs, these digital classrooms mirror the in-person program experience through an interactive Zoom platform. In these live online courses, you’ll benefit from: 

  • Short courses that fit busy schedules
  • Immersive topic exploration
  • Live presentations by faculty, shared documents, collaborative tools
  • Proven frameworks and immediately applicable takeaways
  • Casual networking with peers in breakout groups
  • Ample breaks and opportunities to ask questions

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, 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.

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.
