Earn a Certificate
What is an MIT Sloan Executive Certificate?
An MIT Sloan Executive Certificate is a formal recognition of your professional development and commitment to continuous learning. Pursuing an Executive Certificate allows you to further your business knowledge and skills on a convenient, flexible schedule of your own design. Our professional certificate programs run throughout the year and are typically two days to one week in duration. The certificates are offered in three areas of concentration, providing executives with the opportunity to tailor their education plans to meet their own specific interests and business goals.
How to earn an MIT Sloan Executive Certificate
To qualify for an Executive Certificate, participants must complete four programs—with at least three of the four coming from their chosen certificate track—within a four-year period. At least one of these programs must be attended in person rather than virtually. Our open enrollment, executive development programs are offered in three areas of concentration or tracks, which address the business needs and goals of executives worldwide: Strategy and Innovation; Technology, Operations, and Value Chain Management; and Management and Leadership.
You can indicate your intent to earn an Executive Certificate prior to completing your first course or any time after. Although many participants find it helpful to preselect the certificate they wish to earn and the courses they wish to complete in advance, others prefer to take a course or two before determining if they want to pursue a certificate and selecting which track is best for them. There are many different program combinations available when designing the Executive Certificate plan that is right for you, including the option of completing the Executive Certificate requirements in one short visit.
Participants who attend 25 program days and complete at least two programs from each Executive Certificate track within a four-year period are eligible for—ACE, the Advanced Certificate for Executives in Management, Innovation, and Technology.
