Global Executive Academy (multi-language)

Dates:

This program is a transformative learning experience designed to fit the time and language constraints of experienced executives from a wide variety of industries and countries. A new frontier in executive education, it extends MIT content to the non-English speaking world through a multilingual experience. The program was redesigned for 2016 to include a wider variety of management topics and additional world-class MIT Sloan faculty. Topics include: leadership, strategy, innovation, systems thinking, marketing (branding), communications, negotiations and finance. Translated materials and simultaneous interpretation into Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish are offered, provided there are a minimum of 10 participants per language.* Other languages may also be considered. Upon completing the program, participants will earn an Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership.

* For the July 2017 program, translation and simultaneous interpretation are confirmed for Mandarin and Spanish. Unfortunately we did not have enough requests for Portuguese to offer that language this year, but we hope to offer it again in 2018.

Registration deadline is June 9, 2017.

  • Lucimar C: Minhas expectativas foram alcançadas. Sabia que eu não sairia do MIT com uma receita completa e/ou perfeita, porém, tinha certeza no exito sobre a complementação e avanços dos meus estudos onde poderei estar reavaliando as minhas atividades de Gestão e Liderança na Controladoria e Governança Corporativa onde atuo diretamente. A motivação para inovações e uso de estratégias mais adequadas foram instigadas. Aproveitei todo o contexto do curso, sabendo das interligações dos módulos, bem adequados e conduzidos pelos excelentes professores. Sugiro, conforme algumas anotações e comentários feitos, que analisem sobre alguns ajustes e, que mantenham o curso na grade do MIT Sloan, pois, entendo ser muito importante para os executivos em geral e, com a grade para atender de forma Global, com tradução simultânea, poderão estar atendendo a um mercado importante como foi o meu caso. Aproveito para reiterar os meus parabéns para todo a equipe MIT Sloan. Lucimar Cardozo.

  • Oscar A: Improve the interaction between participants. There was little opportunity for such interaction with people from Asia, perhaps because of language problems. Remove some content marketing, which are very general, and increase the issues related to innovation.

  • ADEKUNLE A: It is one of the best executive programs Sloan has to offer. Whilst I have not attended many in the same school, it is pertinent to mention that the areas covered in the course are essentially managerial and leadership biased. It helps to tone up my alder of creativity from courses on innovation,product development and marketing; expanded my sense of passion and delivery from courses on HR and people management; and also rebranded my strategic insights from courses on leadership and technology, in summary. It has also helped to establish relationship with eminent executives beyond the shores of my country, thus impacting positively on my flair for a second international language and my views on globalization. GEA is one in a million program at all times!!!

Participant Testimonial

"The Global Executive Academy offered the most comprehensive and valuable courses I have ever taken. The different insights from 35 executives from 15 different countries were mind opening and exciting to say the least. Eight days of valuable insights not only from the professors but also from all of the participants. I would recommend this academy to anyone without hesitation." ~ Joe Fidalgo
