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 or near 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 the same unique benefits such as a multicultural environment, diversity of perspectives, cross-border networking, and global experience.

The programs will be delivered "United Nations style" – with simultaneous translation in up to six languages: Arabic, English, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, 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.

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

  • Innovation: Building, Leading, and Sustaining the Innovative Organization (Sep 2–4, 2014)
  • Management: Managing Technical Professionals and Organizations (Sep 4–6, 2014)
  • Marketing: Strategic Marketing (Sep 8–9, 2014)
  • Organizational Performance: Creating High Velocity Organizations (Sep 10–11, 2014)

Participants in the Academy will earn an 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 execacademy@mit.edu if you would like to discuss.

The Global Executive Academy is a one-of-a-kind, transformative learning experience designed to fit the time and language constraints of seasoned executives from around the globe. It offers a unique way to:

  • Access the world-class education that is currently not available to non-English speaking executives—in a global multilingual setting
  • Engage with MIT Sloan’s world class faculty around both their latest research and the “tried and true” in such areas as innovation, management, strategic marketing and organizational performance
  • Enhance your understanding of business concepts and language that your global partners speak
  • Leverage multiple perspectives to advance an important business challenge away from day-to-day operating pressures
  • Increase cultural awareness and improve ability to think on a global scale
  • Expand professional networks within your country and internationally
  • Enhance your value to your employer and business

The Global Executive Academy is primarily geared towards general and technical executives who carry significant leadership roles in their companies and whose English language skills are not sufficient to effectively participate in executive education programs held in English. Participants will have an opportunity to experience the Academy in one of the following six languages – Arabic, English, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish. The English language cluster is meant to accommodate those who are highly proficient in English and who wish to take the four courses and earn a certificate in the unique multilingual setting of the Global Executive Academy.

  • VPs of Marketing, Product Development, HR, Business Development
  • CIOs
  • Chief Technologists
  • Corporate Strategists and Planners
  • Senior Executives in R&D, Engineering and Manufacturing
  • Head Scientists
  • Managers with Responsibility for Process Excellence
  • Managers of Other Functions and Business Lines

 

"Our vision is to enable senior leaders from all over the world to come to MIT to attend a set of our regular executive education programs and earn one of our coveted Executive Certificates, irrespective of their proficiency in spoken English. This will be a unique opportunity for an elite group of multinational executives to come together and learn with our faculty and each other, share experiences, and explore the business challenges of globalization in a truly unique way. It is a bold idea—but if there is anywhere in the world that this can work, MIT is the place."

    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.



    In general the program is interest, but is necessary change the focus for international companies with study cases.
