The Executive Program in General Management (EPGM) introduces mid-career managers and leaders to the latest in MIT thought leadership on innovation, strategy, decision-making, and leadership. The program exposes participants to the MIT ecosystem, leading MIT faculty, and frameworks. Over the course of the 25 program days, participants learn the skills they need to move to the next level in their companies and the next phase in their careers. This unique multi-modular program is designed around MIT Sloan Executive Education’s three Executive Certificate tracks:
• Management and Leadership
• Strategy and Innovation
• Technology, Operations, and Value Chain Management

The program follows the MIT motto of Mens et Manus — Mind and Hand — the belief that academic development of new knowledge must be paired with the practical application of that knowledge. Classwork is balanced with the application of theoretical concepts to real-world problems through practical projects. Participants are asked to work together to create, staff, and execute projects that they develop over the course of the program, giving them the chance to apply the classroom knowledge to real-world problems. EPGM is designed for executives in emerging markets who are looking to reinforce their strengths, learn new skills, connect to other high-achieving managers from around the world, and prepare for the next phase of their career.

Embracing “Mens et Manus”
The world knows MIT for its pioneering research and its innovative graduates. But from the very beginning, MIT has also offered a distinctive form of education, deeply informed by science and technology and founded on hands-on research, real-world problem solving, and a commitment to “learning by doing.”
MIT's motto is "Mens et Manus," which translates from the Latin to "Mind and Hand." This motto reflects the educational ideals of MIT's founders who were promoting, above all, education for practical application. Group Projects/ Action Learning is a centerpiece of the MIT Sloan EPGM experience which is designed to:

  • Deliver education for practical application
  • Promote cross-cultural collaborations
  • Create positive social impact
  • Prepare participants to succeed in the global economy
