Entrepreneurship Development Program

January 28 - February 2, 2018

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

Greater Boston Executive Program

March 7, 2026 - April 25, 2016

The Greater Boston Executive Program (GBEP) prepares high-potential professionals for executive leadership. By incorporating new research concepts and management practices, this intensive, eight-week program helps executives to enhance their people management skills, leadership capabilities, and ability to direct and carry out necessary organizational changes. Participants will learn how to apply findings from the behavioral sciences to build stronger organizations and graduate better equipped to lead change, organize for innovation, and manage an increasingly technical workforce. The program’s frameworks and modules are complemented by the small class size, close student-faculty interaction, and the diversity of topics and participant backgrounds.


The course will be held on eight consecutive Mondays (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) beginning March 7, 2016. Participants who complete the program will receive both a GBEP certificate of completion and an MIT Sloan Executive Education Certificate in Management and Leadership.


Course curriculum is divided into three main topic areas:


Leadership
The leadership-focused sessions will introduce participants to MIT’s Four Capabilities Leadership Framework, a powerful tool for understanding and integrating four critical components of leadership—sense-making, relating, visioning, and inventing. This segment of the course will develop the participants’ ability to practice these capabilities through cases, experiential exercises, role-plays, videos, and self-assessments.


Organization Change
Organizations are changing rapidly in an increasingly uncertain world; dealing with these changes requires new skills and attitudes on the part of managers. This segment is concerned with the strategic, political, and cultural aspects of leading individuals and groups within and among organizations. Understanding how organizations and groups behave and change is necessary if managers are to act effectively in their current and future positions. Participants will engage in case discussions, small group problem solving exercises, and a computer simulation designed to provide insight and skill when leading organizational change.


Strategic Human Resource Management
While employees have always been central to the functioning of organizations, today they have taken on an even more critical role in the building of a firm’s competitive advantage. The effective employment of human resources in order to improve company performance is the essence of human resource management. This segment of the course approaches personnel and HRM problems and challenges from the general manager’s standpoint, combining up-to-date research findings with case materials and views HR theory and practice in light of current and emerging trends in the workplace.
