Our Executive Education courses are designed to help managers not only solve problems, but also see opportunities these problems may present and discover new and innovative sources of revenue in those opportunities!

The Management and Leadership Certificate is an ideal option for business professionals and technical executives seeking to enhance their general management and leadership skills in order to become effective leaders in a dynamic business world. Courses in this track focus on core business competencies including marketing, finance, negotiations, change management, and systems thinking.

To earn an MIT Sloan Certificate in Executive Management and Leadership, participants must choose three courses in the Management and Leadership track, plus a fourth program from any of the three tracks. (The other two tracks are Strategy and Innovation and Technology, Operations, and Value Chain Management.) Although select online programs can be used toward an Executive Certificate, at least one program must be attended in person or as a live online program. With more than 50 short courses in our portfolio and dozens of back-to-back course options, there has never been a better time to complete your certificate requirements. Learn more.
