The Greater Boston Leadership Program returns March 11

Greater Boston Leadership Program

If you’re a Boston-area professional seeking to make a big impact on your organization and your career, here is your chance. This spring, MIT Sloan Executive Education offers an intensive program designed for high-potential professionals interested in enhancing their management skills, leadership capabilities, and ability to manifest change.

The Greater Boston Leadership Program (GBLP) will be held on eight consecutive Mondays (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) over nine weeks beginning March 11, 2019 and ending on May 6, 2019. There will be no class on Patriots Day (April 15, 2018). The course curriculum is divided into three main topic areas: leadership, organization change, and strategic human resources management.

Program participants will leave with:

· Powerful tools for improving leadership capabilities
· New behavioral science research that is reshaping the way people are managed
· Groundbreaking strategies for leading change

You’ll also benefit from the intimate class setting, close student-faculty interaction, hands-on learning exercises and computer simulations, and a diversity of topics and participant backgrounds. You’ll leave the program with a GBLP certificate of completion, an MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership, and a new, lifelong network of peers.

According to MIT Sloan Professor John Van Maanen, who is Faculty Director of GBLP and one of three faculty members who teach in it, the program's frameworks and modules are complemented by the small class size and close student-faculty interaction, as well as the diversity of topics and participant backgrounds.

"I know of no other open enrollment executive course that fosters the amount of mutual learning over an extended period of time as the Greater Boston program," says Van Maanen. "The local character ensures relevance and uniqueness across a variety of companies and industries."

Van Maanen says participants will learn how to apply findings from the behavioral sciences to build stronger organizations and graduate better equipped to "lead change, organize for innovation, and manage an increasingly technical workforce."

If this program is a fit for your management and leadership goals for 2018, we invite you to learn more and apply to the 2019 session!
