"Effective leadership is measured by success and decisions made in bad times as well as good. I decided to enroll in the MIT Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership track to enhance my knowledge and acquire the insights and skills needed for this type of leadership. The faculty is amazing and they keep you engaged all the time. You learn but you are also able to debate the concepts as they apply directly to real-life business."
