Formerly the Advanced Certificate for Senior Executives (ACSE)

The Advanced Management Program (AMP) is an intense, intimate, transformative learning experience designed to fit the time constraints of seasoned, mid-career executives. This senior executive program is selective and purposely limited to 25 participants who seek “something beyond an MBA” and are willing to create and sustain a learning community.

Held on campus at MIT Sloan in Cambridge, Massachusetts, AMP is an exceptional way to:

  • Develop skills and acquire planning/thinking frameworks that are useful to those in the C-suite at most companies--especially in the science, engineering, and technology sectors
  • Engage with more than 30 of MIT Sloan’s world class faculty around both their latest research in advanced management tactics and the “tried and true” in such areas as strategy, system dynamics, leadership, and innovation
  • Make new, life-long connections with experienced business people from a wide variety of geographies and companies
  • Leverage multiple perspectives to advance an important business issues away from day-to-day operating pressures
  • Develop critical leadership and change management skills via individualized 360° feedback assessments and 1-on-1 leadership coaching
  • See new ideas emerging from the labs, centers, and businesses that are part of the MIT/Sloan/Cambridge “innovation cluster”

“A holistic experience of the best concepts and faculty MIT Sloan can offer—plus practical advice for taking action.”         
                                                        -Region Head, Pharmaceutical Firm

How AMP Works
AMP delivers on its purpose as the leading senior executive program by combining a number of powerful features:

  • Exposure to MIT Sloan’s world-class faculty and their latest research
  • Access to the “innovation ecosystem” around MIT through company visits, executive panels, a tour of labs and centers in the area
  • Learning variety: classes and case studies, business simulations, leader panels, 360° feedback and 1-on-1 leadership coaching, team-building experiences, and work on personal assessments, surveys, and projects
  • Connection with other participants of similar experience and ambition through AMP-specific courses, open-enrollment executive programs that draws global participants, and the ACE alumni network

“I have two business degrees, an engineering degree, and over 20 years of business experience….only now I can confidently say I understand macro economics and how to apply it to planning in my business.”

The guiding purpose of the Advanced Management Program is to deepen the ability of experienced executives to make significant and systemic changes in their companies and the world. AMP participants will acquire new frameworks and skills for which MIT Sloan is world-renowned; make connections that will last a lifetime with colleagues who share similar experiences; and develop a renewed and expanded sense of themselves as leaders. In short, AMP helps participants take another step in their career and be more effective change agents in the future.

What Makes AMP a Unique Program for Senior Executives

  • Strong focus on taking practical action: “How does what I’m learning make me a better leader and a more valuable contributor to my business?”
  • Personal learning journals that track insights and growth over the program’s duration
  • Individual Projects: content application to a project of real importance and value to each participant and their organization
  • Systemic, cross-functional, and cross-border lenses applied to current business issues
  • Faculty, coaches, and alumni who are committed to applying and generalizing from the latest management thinking and frameworks
  • Integration of personal leadership concepts, skill-building, and coaching with large scale macroeconomic and systems thinking frameworks and tools

Ideal Candidates for the Advanced Management Program
AMP is an intense and demanding experience. The best AMP candidates are seasoned executives who carry significant leadership roles in their companies either as: general managers, leaders of functions or business lines, or who have direct responsibility for profit/loss. All the key elements of the AMP experience – the professors, their content, the scope of the project work, 1-on-1 leadership coaching, simulations, etc. are designed specifically for senior executives with:

  • 15-20 years of work experience, across several different functional and business lines
  • Confident fluency in written and spoken English
  • Significant international exposure
  • An urgent agenda for change and support from their sponsoring companies
  • The ability to contribute to the learning of others and the Sloan alumni network
  • A graduate degree

Alumni Gathering
At the close of the program schedule, AMP participants will convene and learn with AMP/ACE alumni, past participants of the International Management Program, and selected Sloan alumni. A themed agenda will bring together all of these friends of MIT Executive Education to reconnect on campus, learn, and share experiences. Past themes have focused on a particular geography such as China, or an integrative, strategic issue such as reverse innovation. 

"The program brought a diverse group of senior executives from all over the world together during an intense five week course. The open environment, the exchange and application within the MIT network made the experience very valuable and created friendships that will last a lifetime."

    ASCE Program, Was a truly inspired experience and a seriously mental challenge.



    The ACSE has been a very useful experience. The staff supporting the programmer have been excellent. Very helpful, accommodating and welcoming.



    Great learning experience - would not have come to MIT if it was not for ASCE - my expectations were high - and I am overly satisfied with the program content. A+++



    Truely Inspirational!!! As a Sr. executive with 25 years of experiance, two bachlor's degres's one in engineering and one in business and having worked on my MBA 10 years ago, I really did not know what more I would learn from a 5 week course at MIT. The experiance of ACSE was tansformational for me. I entered the course as a catipiller and emerged a butterfly! I learned so much and really appreciated MIT's combination of theory, backed by scientific evidence and then the opprotunity to apply this in action learning setting. There was termendous value in being able to collaberate with people from all over world which in my experaince fostered innovative thinking and an opprotunity to learn on another level. I recieved value from every course I took and the overall experiance of being able to reflect for probabley the first time in my career.
