Dive Deep with an Executive Certificate

An MIT Sloan Executive Certificate is formal recognition of your professional development and commitment to continuous learning. Certificates are offered in three areas of concentration, providing executives with the opportunity to tailor their education plans to meet their own specific interests and business goals. To qualify for an Executive Certificate, participants must complete four programs—with at least three of the four coming from their chosen certificate track—within a four-year period. Learn more.

Many participants like to take a deeper dive into a particular subject area and choose to plan their certificate around one main theme. Below are several sample plans to get you started.
