“The MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Strategy and Innovation provided excellent tools and frameworks that helped me in my former role leading Ballard's technology planning group. The knowledge I gained in the programs ultimately helped me make the transition into our marketing and business development team. I continue to apply the principles I learned in the courses in my everyday work, and have recommended the MIT executive certificate program to several of my co-workers.”
