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. 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

Why your company should sponsor employees to attend MIT’s AMP:

Sponsoring your top-tier executives to attend MIT’s Advanced Management Program (AMP) is a unique opportunity to maximize the impact of executive education in your organization.

The guiding ethos of the AMP is to empower experienced executives to bring about substantive and transformative changes, not just within their respective organizations but on a global scale. By nurturing your talent through such a program, you can equip them with the capabilities to navigate your company through complex challenges, making your team more agile, innovative, and forward-thinking.

We also hope you will give special consideration to women and people of color in your organization. Research shows that women and minority professionals are less likely to nominate themselves for such opportunities. We are committed to accepting a diverse and inclusive cohort that reflects a range of perspectives and experiences. In fact, the small and diverse cohort of peers is part of what makes this program so unique and so valuable.

If you are seeking extraordinary learning experiences for your high performing professionals, here are a few ways in which MIT’s AMP stands apart:

  • Tailored learning experience: AMP is not just a theoretical course; it provides practical tools, granting participants direct access to renowned faculty, coaches, industry leaders, and alumni. This ensures your employees can contextualize the latest management paradigms and frameworks to your specific industry and company challenges.
  • Cutting-edge insights: With the corporate landscape evolving rapidly, especially in areas like fintech, blockchain, cybersecurity, and digital transformation, AMP ensures your team stays ahead of the curve.
  • Holistic skill development: Beyond just insights, the program offers extensive training in pivotal areas such as leadership, change management, strategy, innovation, and technology, among others. These skills are paramount in today's volatile business environment.
  • Experiential learning: AMP is not confined to the classroom. Participants will also engage with the MIT and Boston/Cambridge innovation ecosystem, including visits to companies, labs, and incubators. Such experiences provide invaluable real-world insights and connections.
  • Global networking: AMP is a congregation of bright minds from across the globe. Your employees will not only learn from the course but also from their international peers, fostering a unique sense of belonging and building a vast professional network.

But don’t take our word for it … AMP participants frequently share feedback about their AMP experience and its impact on their role and company. Here is what a few of these executives have to say:

“AMP equipped me with the capabilities I need to lead and manage organizations. I learned from world-class faculty and networked with accomplished professionals, which gave me a new perspective on leadership and management. I am now better equipped to make strategic decisions, build high-performing teams, and drive innovation.” — Andrés R.

“It was important to me that I wasn’t repeating business school again. I wanted to dive into those issues that keep leaders up at night. And I wanted to be able to bring real takeaways back to my company … I challenge my peers and team members differently now. I don’t make decisions for them anymore. I have more tools to suggest how they can think about their work differently and how we can challenge each other to solve problems and get to the answers.” — Birgit G.

“We have been going through some exciting transformations within our company. I felt like MIT rewired my brain just in time for me to come back and really delve into what needed to be done. Every day I spent on the Cambridge campus was literally preparing me with tools that I use every day now." — Terence L.

The knowledge, skills, and connections participants acquire in AMP have the potential to yield exponential returns for your company. We hope you will consider sponsoring senior leaders to partake in this once-in-a-lifetime experience at MIT.
