MIT Professional Education offers new professional certificate Program - Research & Development World


MIT Professional Education is announcing a new professional certificate program in Strategic Technology Roadmapping and Innovation. With an emphasis on strategic technological leadership, the unique learning experience will provide professionals with the key tools and expertise necessary to successfully implement and manage emerging technologies within their 21st-century organizations.

"Effective technology implementation requires careful planning, evaluation and management to ensure that you incorporate the sustaining and disruptive technologies that will benefit your organization the most, keeping in mind your workforce, products or services and goals," said course instructor Olivier de Weck, professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Engineering Systems at MIT. "By applying data analysis and theory, elaborating technology roadmaps and examining reskilling and upskilling solutions, business and technical leaders can enhance the decision-making process for new R&D investments and ensure that every aspect of the enterprise is optimized in the process of implementing new technology."

The Professional Certificate Program in Strategic Technology Roadmapping and Innovation is a comprehensive, results-driven program that incorporates a wide range of expertise and practical skills that can be put to immediate use. It is offered in both English and Spanish with the opportunity to participate in live sessions and virtual group activities. During the learning journey, MIT faculty will guide participants through in-depth courses – with expert facilitators on hand to answer any questions and respond to comments.
