“Participation in the MIT Sloan Executive Certificate Program was a very fulfilling experience. It was as though the MIT faculty were addressing me personally. The programs offer business leaders and executives unique insights and innovative tools that have direct application in our respective business strategies. The principles acquired found immediate application within my organization after the very first session. I know I will continue to keep in touch with faculty and fellow peers whom I had the pleasure of meeting during my participation. I would highly recommend this program to any executive yearning to expand their horizon with new ideas based on solid case studies, research and implementation.”
