MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership
Our executive education programs 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. The curriculum focuses on core business competencies including marketing, finance, negotiations, change management, and systems thinking.
This year, we are offering several new management training programs created to address some of the most immediate issues many organizations and executives may be facing. Questions Are the Answer: A Breakthrough Approach to Creative Problem Solving, Innovation, and Change will share unique insights into the behaviors of extraordinary leaders and the unique conditions they created at work and in life to ask catalytic, game-changing questions. Cybersecurity Leadership for Non-Technical Executives provides general managers with a holistic approach to keeping your company secure. In addition, we are excited to welcome John Davis, a renowned authority in the family enterprise field, to MIT Sloan and look forward to exploring in depth the issues and challenges of family ownership and sustaining multigenerational success in our new family enterprise programs.
