AMP participants will engage in custom learning components led by MIT’s world-renowned faculty, including interactive classroom sessions, management simulations, case studies, 1:1 leadership coaching, and individualized feedback assessments. Participants will also explore the many companies, labs and centers that make MIT and surrounding Kendall Square the epicenter of innovation worldwide.

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.

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 is delivered as an integrated combination of:

  • Lectures
  • Case studies
  • Business simulations
  • Executive panels
  • 360° feedback and 1-on-1 leadership coaching
  • Team-building experiences
  • Personal assessments
  • Action learning projects

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

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.

Mind and Hand at MIT’s AMP

The “ethos” of MIT is reflected in the school’s “Mind and Hand” motto (in Latin, Mens et Manus), which refers to a culture that emphasizes applied knowledge and learning by doing.

Past participant Galo Sanchez says he, "learned a number of different strategies and frameworks that I did apply immediately. To be honest it has been less than six months and we are already seeing the results in the organization.”

The Role of Coaching in AMP

AMP participants benefit from 1-to-1 leadership coaching and individualized feedback assessments—aspects of the program that make AMP extremely valuable to its participants and sets it apart from other programs of its kind.
