“It’s like getting an MBA in two weeks,” says Tauseef Ayaz, who recently completed anMIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership.
Executive certificates are earned by taking four courses—three in a chosen track, and one more in any of the three tracks. Ayaz earned his certificate with four Management and Leadership programs that really pack a punch: Transforming Your Leadership Strategy;Essential Law Executives: The MIT Advantage; Strategic Marketing for the Technical Executive; and Fundamentals of Finance for the Technical Executive.
An account manager at Nokia—a global leader in mobile communications—Ayaz says he found the courses challenging and in line with his career. In addition, he says the short-term schedule allowed him to complete the certificate without too much time away from the office. “The program’s flexibility was very helpful. It was just the right amount of time and effort.”
