MIT Executive MBA

From the MIT Executive MBA Directors

Prospective Students and Sponsors, 

There are four things that set the MIT EMBA apart. First, we have one of the most experienced cohorts in the country and possibly the world. These mid-career professionals represent a diverse, wide cross-section of industries, roles, and nationalities, resulting in rich cross-functional perspectives and productive collaborations. As a student you will learn as much from each other as from the faculty, creating a collaborative and supportive community.

Second, is our focus on Action Learning and the impact you can have in your organization. Through real-world projects in the classroom and out, you can immediately apply new knowledge and analytical tools to make more data-driven decisions for your jobs, while enhancing your learning and adding value to your organizations.

Third, the fundamental building blocks of the science of management distinguishes our curriculum. We teach our students to have a more scientific mindset to decision-making by approaching situations, problems, and opportunities differently. Decision-making becomes more data reliant, and more quantitatively oriented. You gain the tools to make strategic decisions and the credibility to drive them through your organization.

Fourth, is our deep-seeded commitment to our mission. We develop leaders who make a positive impact in the world. You will develop the confidence to take the right risks at the right time and develop the advanced management capabilities to realize strategic priorities. You have the opportunity to work with leaders who are shaping best practices across technology and business.

If you are at a pivotal point in your career and seek to broaden your perspective, to increase your impact, and to develop an edge in your management capabilities – then we encourage you to apply to the MIT Executive MBA program.
