"At MIT Sloan Executive Education, we are focused on bridging the energy, engagement, and idea flow of physical in-person teaching and learning into online experiences. We aim to positively modify individual and collective behaviors that participants will take back to their teams and propagate throughout their organizations."
– Paul McDonagh-Smith, Digital Capability Leader, MIT Sloan Executive Education

“I'm so glad to have found MIT Sloan. It was a very special experience to learn from industry pioneers among so many existing people from different countries and backgrounds. My online experience with MIT was a lot of work and a lot of time, but very rewarding. It was a true commitment over the six to eight weeks. Being on campus for two-day courses was a very different experience that enabled so many outstanding connections—you really have the opportunity to meet people, network, and get to know the professors. There are great things about both online and in-person offerings, and I'll continue doing both.”—Andreas Mathismoen, a Norway-based professional who recently completed a mix of in-person and online programs to complete his MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership.
