In a release issued today, MIT says the 20-month part-time program “is designed to equip high-potential executives with the strong foundation of knowledge, skills, and practical experience that will expand their management capabilities and increase their impact on their organization and the world at large.”
The deadline for the first cohort of about 60 executives is Aug. 15. Students will take part in four eight-day on-campus learning modules, plus 26 weekend sessions. Between sessions, students will take what they’ve learned and apply it at their companies through individual and team-based projects. Students will also participate in a week-long “action learning course” called the Global Organizations Lab or GO-Lab, during which they’ll take part in an intense, team-based consulting project for an organization with international operations.
“We are excited to offer this new format for exceptional employees who are further along in their careers and seeking a higher level of management education,” says MIT Sloan Dean David Schmittlein in a press release. “Students in the MBA for Executives Program will gain a competitive edge through MIT Sloan’s deep expertise in global leadership, innovation, and the science of management, while building a diverse business network that facilitates cross-industry learning.”
