MIT Sloan Executive Education is excited to advance to a new frontier in the world of executive education by bringing a diverse multinational audience together to experience MIT’s world-class education in a global multilingual setting. The idea behind the Global Executive Academy is to bring MIT content to the non-English speaking world by offering a multilingual educational experience on the MIT campus that draws on our existing open enrollment portfolio. While this offering provides non-English speaking executives access to the same MIT education that is currently available to their English-speaking counterparts, it also affords them unique benefits such as a multicultural environment, diversity of perspectives, cross-border networking, and a global experience.

The programs will be delivered "United Nations-style"—with simultaneous translation in Mandarin, Portuguese, and Spanish.*  Executives and managers from different geographies, industries, companies and functions will learn together and draw on each other for their assigned projects and discussions. There will also be social activities designed to bridge the language barrier.

2015 Academy participants took part in four of MIT Sloan’s open enrollment courses that cover critical management issues:

Participants in the Academy will earn a MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership. It is an ideal option for executives and senior managers seeking to enhance their general management skills in order to become effective leaders in a dynamic global business world. All four programs need to be completed to earn the certificate.

*Note: Languages are subject to change or cancellation. Also, we will consider adding another language to the program if at least 10 participants can be confirmed. Please contact us at if you would like to discuss.
