Executive Education:

Leading thinkers. Unique program content. Influential partners and participants.

MIT Sloan’s educational reach extends far beyond our traditional degree programs and nowhere more significantly than through our non-degree Executive Education programs. The wide array of courses brings together faculty from MIT and the MIT Sloan School of Management with leading practitioners. Attracting participants from every corner of the world (83 countries in 2012), MIT Sloan Executive Education classrooms provide a multitude of perspectives and experiences that together are positively influencing the way business is done around the world, while increasing MIT Sloan’s global visibility and impact. With courses that focus on everything from emerging technologies to entrepreneurship to sustainability, Executive Education programs, like all of MIT Sloan’s degree programs, are educating global citizens who will improve management practice and, ultimately, the world.
