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.
