Leadership & Innovation

Artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics…are all part of the technological evolution that is changing the world we know.

Over the last century, MIT has been at the forefront of technological innovation and mastery of technical capabilities driving innovation. Today, in order to face the challenges and opportunities of the greatest transformational era in human history, we are aware that organizations and projects need more and more the combination of technical excellence and great interpersonal and leadership skills. It is necessary to create a culture of driving change, a global vision of projects, and the ability to inspire and motivate people in order to emerge stronger from this environment of constant innovation.

MIT Professional Education has created the online Leadership & Innovation program, which merges the development of leadership skills with the vision needed to address innovation processes in organizations. The values of leadership and innovation are in the DNA of MIT, which has developed the program so that participants learn to lead from self-knowledge and creativity, and to build teams and organizations with a culture of innovation. This is always done with a practical approach and with tools that can be put into use from day one.

The online Leadership & Innovation program is the first to be launched entirely in Spanish by MIT Professional Education, bringing first-rate graduate education to Spanish-speaking students. The modality is 100% online so that in addition to breaking down the language barrier, the need for physical proximity is also eliminated.

Fire Hydrant Award | MIT Professional Education

MIT Professional Education
Fire Hydrant Award

Jerome Wiesner, former president of MIT (1971-1980), described the experience of studying at MIT as “drinking from a fire hydrant.” Life and learning at MIT require firmness, constancy, and a great deal of determination.

Our professional programs attempt to reflect and instill these competencies. Thus the Fire Hydrant Award was born, a recognition for those who demonstrate a constant pursuit of learning and the ability to put their knowledge into practice. This award is also given to participants who demonstrate some of MIT’s core values: excellence, meritocracy, courage, humility, curiosity, and a passion for solving problems and improving society.
