You’re a senior executive looking to solve tough business problems and advance your career. You know you want an immersive program with top faculty and a cohort of exceptional peers, but you're also looking for a program that can fit your time constraints. You may be considering an advanced management program. If so, here are some questions you may be considering.
Why an Advanced Management Program?
Wondering if an advanced management program might be right for you? Executives enroll in postgraduate programs for many reasons, but most have an immediate need to focus on strategic skills and particular business challenges. You may be an entrepreneur looking to scale your business. Or perhaps you are preparing to step up into a job that is bigger and more complex than your current role.
Some advanced management programs tend to be "MBA refreshers." The Advanced Management Program (AMP) at MIT Sloan, however, is a five-week program focused less on core curriculum--the entire course is built around custom modules--and more on strategic cross-functional skill sets that you can immediately put into practice.
For example, one former AMP participant entered the program with a patent for a new product, and by the time he left, he had built a commercial business plan, received legal advice, and made essential contacts for the development of his product. Another attendee who was in charge of supply chain for beverages and beers for his US-based company wrote a plan for growing the business in Africa.
