MIT Sloan Launches EMBA For High-Potential Executives
The MIT Sloan School of Management announced the launch Tuesday of its new MBA for Executives Program. Candidates for this rigorous, 20-month part-time MBA program should have at least 10 years of work experience and aspire to lead within their established organizations or new ventures.
They must also be able to show a combination of leadership performance, global perspective, functional expertise, and innovation. The application deadline for the first cohort is August 15, 2010.
Starting in October 2010, the MIT Sloan Executive MBA Program will bring together an inaugural group of approximately 60 executives to participate in four eight-day, on-campus learning modules and 26 weekend sessions designed to build a collaborative framework that supports interdisciplinary learning and strong bonds between classmates.
Between sessions, MBA for Executives students will apply their knowledge within their company while continuing to learn through individual and team-based projects. Students will also participate in a week-long action learning course ”“ Global Organizations Lab (GO-Lab) ”“ during which they will work on an intense, team-based consulting project with an internationally operating organization.
“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,” said MIT Sloan Dean David Schmittlein.
“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.”
