This senior executive program is selective and purposely limited to 35 participants. Held on campus at MIT Sloan in Cambridge, Massachusetts, AMP is an exceptional way to:

  • Develop skills and acquire planning/thinking frameworks that are useful to entrepreneurs and those in the C-suite at most companies?especially in the science, engineering, and technology sectors
  • Engage with more than 30 of MIT Sloan?s world-class faculty around both their latest research in advanced management tactics and the ?tried and true? in such areas as strategy, system dynamics, leadership, and innovation
  • Make new, life-long connections with experienced business people from a wide variety of geographies and companies
  • Leverage multiple perspectives to advance important business issues away from day-to-day operating pressures
  • Develop critical leadership and change management skills via individualized feedback assessments and 1-on-1 leadership coaching
  • See new ideas emerging from the labs, centers, and businesses that are part of the MIT/Sloan/Cambridge "innovation cluster"

"I have two business degrees, an engineering degree, and more than 20 years of business experience? only now I can confidently say I understand macroeconomics and how to apply it to planning in my business."
?Supply Chain Leader, Multi-National Mining Company

How AMP Works
AMP delivers on its purpose as the leading senior executive program by combining a number of powerful features:

  • Exposure to MIT Sloan?s world-class faculty and their latest research

  • Learning variety: classes and case studies, business simulations, leader panels, 360 feedback and 1-on-1 leadership coaching, team-building experiences, and work on personal assessments, surveys, and projects
  • Connection with other participants of similar experience and ambition through AMP-specific courses, open-enrollment executive programs that draw global participants, and the ACE alumni network


The guiding purpose of the Advanced Management Program (AMP) is to deepen the ability of experienced executives to make significant and systemic changes in their companies and the world.

Drawing from the vast culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at MIT, this unique course introduces participants to MIT?s entrepreneurial education programs, technology transfer system, and global entrepreneurial network. It covers the entire venture creation process, from generating ideas to building viable global businesses, with a special emphasis on the nurturing roles of corporations, universities, governments, and foundations.

This program leverages MIT's culture of high-tech entrepreneurship to help entrepreneurs, corporate venturing executives, high tech startup companies, and others involved in entrepreneurial environments learn what they need to develop ideas into successful businesses, and how to increase entrepreneurial opportunities in their corporations, institutions, and regions.

Through lectures by senior MIT faculty, visits to high tech startup companies, and live case studies with successful entrepreneurs, participants will be exposed to the content, context, and contacts that enable entrepreneurs to design and launch successful new ventures based on innovative technologies. Specially designed team projects give participants hands-on training and practical experience developing a business plan, while networking events bring participants together with members of MIT?s entrepreneurial community.

The concepts, tools, and frameworks covered in the program will enable participants to:

Create, identify, and evaluate new venture opportunities

  • Interpret customer needs and quantify the value proposition

  • Start and build a successful technology-based company

  • Understand how the process of starting new ventures may vary geographically and culturally

  • Leverage new science and technologies from corporate or university laboratories

  • Develop winning business plans

  • Scale startups to be globally successful

  • Navigate the venture capital investment process

  • Obtain feedback on personal entrepreneurship skills

  • Enhance and expand their networks

"It's not often your outlook on life changes perceptibly in five short days, but if you ever find yourself enrolled in MIT's Entrepreneurship Development Program, that's exactly what you should expect."

    This program is designed for aspiring entrepreneurs, corporate venture officers, startups, and those who would like to develop or strengthen a climate of entrepreneurship in their corporations, universities, and regions. Teams of entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs are encouraged to attend the program together with university staff and/or development professionals from their region.
