MIT Sloan Executive Education
Certificate Holder Profile
Senior Research Scientist
Lev Kuandykov faced the challenge of quickly learning the fundamentals of finance, marketing, and supply chain management for a new corporate project on modeling for business applications. As a technical professional, he felt that he lacked a much needed background in business education. Since he couldn't invest the time it would take to get a MBA, he began looking for executive education programs that would fit his schedule and precise needs.
“MIT Sloan Executive Education stood out as the only suite of programs that offered the right blend of intensive, focused courses in the range of topics I was interested in.” Lev continues, “I was amazed by the high quality faculty and the way they managed to keep the participants' attention by balancing theoretical aspects, case studies, and lively discussions. The programs have left a deep impact on me. They significantly broadened my horizons and have made me feel more confident in the areas where I had previously felt like a novice. I also noticed that a remarkable number of the other participants already had an MBA but still came to MIT Sloan to learn cutting-edge approaches and innovative frameworks for analyzing business problems.”
