The Advanced Management Program (AMP) is a month-long senior executive program designed for a diverse group of experienced leaders seeking transformative learning among global peers. AMP participants will engage in custom learning components led by MIT’s world-renowned faculty, including interactive classroom sessions, management simulations, case studies, 1:1 leadership coaching, and individualized feedback assessments. Participants will also explore the many companies, labs and centers that make MIT and surrounding Kendall Square the epicenter of innovation worldwide.

AMP 2021 application deadlines will be published shortly. Qualified candidates are admitted on a rolling, space-available basis, and space is limited. Early application is encouraged and will increase your chances of being accepted. Applicants in later rounds have a higher likelihood of being deferred or waitlisted.

Are you an experienced executive at an inflection point in your career? Perhaps you’re preparing to move into a C-suite role, or thinking of embarking on an entrepreneurial venture. Are you looking to broaden your global perspective by exchanging success stories (and failures) with peer executives and entrepreneurs from around the world? Are you a progressive leader who is ready to be challenged and to challenge others? Are you ready to grow your network and forge deep, lasting relationships you never thought possible in five short weeks? Then the MIT Sloan Advanced Management Program may be right for you.

MIT Sloan welcomes a select group of experienced executives to an intense, transformative learning experience on campus and in the heart of what is often referred to as “the most innovative square mile on the planet.” Designed to fit the time constraints of seasoned, mid-career executives, AMP runs for 5 consecutive weeks. Limited to a maximum of 35 participants, the program is intentionally diverse, representative of global points of view. Executives in the program may or may not have an advanced degree but all have rich work experience, including P&L responsibility and significant international experience. In line with the MIT Sloan mission, all participants have the ambition and desire to advance management practice and make a broader impact in their organizations and the world.

AMP is delivered as an integrated combination of:

  • Lectures
  • Case studies
  • Business simulations
  • Executive panels
  • 360° feedback and 1-on-1 leadership coaching
  • Team-building experiences
  • Personal assessments
  • Action learning projects

 

During the five weeks, participants benefit from:

  • Exposure to MIT Sloan’s world-class faculty and their latest research
  • Access to the extraordinary innovation ecosystem within and around MIT, including company visits, and tours of labs and centers
  • Ongoing challenges to their thinking, leadership style, biases, and expectations of themselves and others
  • Time and resources to focus on personal projects and initiatives
  • Opportunities to form profound connections with participants and program alumni

 

AMP participants arrive with sky-high expectations for world-class learning and leading-edge research on a wide range of topics. But the reality is, they leave with much more. AMP alumni take away actionable plans for managing complex, multi-dimensional organizations in volatile, uncertain markets. They return home with renewed energy, a toolbox of new skills and frameworks, a new leadership vision, and a readiness to make a difference in their companies and in the world. And they take with them a global network of unparalleled leaders and the lifelong friendships that they forged here at MIT.

The guiding purpose of the Advanced Management Program (AMP) is to deepen the ability of experienced executives to make significant and systemic changes in their companies and the world.

As a participant, you will experience:

  • A deepening ability to make significant and systemic changes in your company and the world
  • Access to faculty, coaches, business leaders, and alumni who can help you apply the latest management thinking and frameworks to your industry, company and professional challenges
  • The latest insights on cutting edge topics like Fintech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, Cybersecurity, and Digital Transformation
  • Opportunities to deepen and hone your skills in the critical areas of Leadership and Change Management, Strategy, System Dynamics, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Technology, and Information Management
  • Visits to companies, labs, and incubators within the MIT and Boston/Cambridge innovation ecosystem
  • A unique climate and sense of belonging to a profound network of participants and alumni from around the world
