“Initially I was planning to take one executive education course to meet my continuing education aspirations, and slowly work towards certification. After completing my first course, Managing Technical Professionals and Organizations, it was clear that I needed to accelerate the certification program. MIT professors brought research experience that is unparalleled and were able to clearly convey this knowledge in light of today's competitive advantages and trends. Due to the recent completion of the MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership, along with my MBA, I feel that I can compete for future executive positions, and more importantly bring considerable value to my organization of choice.”
