Carmen Cecilia Cabrera Polo is the founder and CEO of Skole, the leading school uniform company in Ecuador. She is also the sales manager for a family-run textiles company, CC Jr. Sport Confecciones Cabrera. “Attending an MBA program was always on my mind. I met someone who suggested I look into executive programs at MIT.” After completing 11 programs and earning her ACE, Carmen continues to enroll in more programs and still feels that she has only begun.

We caught up with Fouad Dagher, Director of Customer Innovation for National Grid, while he was on campus completing his Advanced Certificate for Executives (ACE). Fouad shared that the ACE is for his career but also for his own edification and satisfaction. “These programs enhance my capabilities … and there is also the benefit of being associated with a brand that is recognized around the world. The MIT brand is a very powerful thing. But most important is the usefulness of the content, and that’s why I will continue to take programs.”

Daryoush Larizadeh is the President of Leviton Manufacturing Company, one of the largest privately held global providers of electrical wiring devices, data center connectivity solutions and lighting energy management systems. A graduate of MIT Sloan (’93), Daryoush sees great value in MIT Sloan Executive Education. HIs leaders now attended the courses of their choosing as part of an Enterprise Account.

Alejandra Martinez is Managing Director of Software Solutions at Agile Solutions. She decided to enroll in courses at MIT Sloan Executive Education to learn the state of the art in specific topics that were critical to her present challenges. She completed four courses and earned her MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership. "There are many frameworks and approaches that proved useful ... Every time I’m struggling with something I can rely on these theories.”

As a busy government employee, Jason Pelletier was looking for educational opportunities that would fit into and complement his professional schedule. He discovered MIT Sloan Executive Education, where he earned an Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership. “The courses, curriculum, and leaders at MIT were incredibly refreshing,” says Pelletier. “Working in government, we stay pretty well insulated and don’t interface as much as executives in other industries. I’m only able to sneak away for a couple days at a time. MIT provided a way to access top of the line, disruptive, cutting-edge content in a way that fits my nonstop schedule.”
