Course snapshot:

 

Why attend MIT's Advanced Management Program (AMP)?:

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.

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.

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

 

The AMP experience:

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 participants will engage in:

  • Custom learning components led by MIT’s world-renowned faculty
  • Interactive classroom sessions
  • Management simulations
  • Case studies
  • 360° feedback and 1:1 leadership coaching
  • Individualized feedback assessments
  • Lectures
  • Case studies
  • Team-building experiences
  • Action learning projects
  • Executive panels

Participants will also explore the many companies, labs and centers that make MIT and surrounding Kendall Square the epicenter of innovation worldwide.

I ultimately settled on MIT Sloan's Advanced Management Program because of the hands-on approaches, the philosophy, and the focus on practicing what you learn. I know I learn better when I can practice, so this was important to me. I’m not a huge business case person—I rather talk about real-world problems.
