PROGRAM MANAGER AND AFGHANISTAN COUNTRY LEAD


AT BAE SYSTEMS & CHIEF SUSTAINABILITY OFFICER AT EEVIG

Calvin oversees the logistics of multiple military operations and hundreds of


employees for BAE Systems in Afghanistan. As his roles with BAE have become
increasingly multifaceted and global, he’s turned to MIT Sloan Executive Education
to help him find leading-edge solutions. And, because the principles he has learned
apply equally well across industries, Calvin has also applied many of his takeaways
to his environmental sustainability startup, eevig.

“The quality of instruction is phenomenal. The frameworks are taught by academics as


well as practitioners who know how to steer the courses to make it applicable to real life.”

Given his distance from campus, he has also taken advantage of our growing
portfolio of online courses. He is now on his way to earning an Advanced
MIT SLOAN EXECUTIVE EDUCATION

Certificate for Executives in Management, Innovation, and Technology (ACE).

Calvin has found that the courses at MIT don’t exist in a vacuum but
instead resemble puzzle pieces that fit together. “You might learn
a framework in one program, then eventually learn a
different component in another, and one day you
find yourself linking the two to compose
a solution to a problem.”

FACULTY CORNER

DEBORAH ANCONA
“It is a pleasure to teach in the Executive Education programs, as there
are motivated executives from around the world who are excited to
learn and to apply our models to their organizations. These classes blend
theory and practice so that each informs the other. Participants are usually
ready to jump into action immediately, forcing us to think about how our
work can be applied to today’s organizational problems and challenges.
The courses are also an opportunity to get to know participants and
organizations in some depth so that our work is more about working
collaboratively rather than as a transaction.”
Deborah Ancona is the Seley Distinguished Professor of Management,
a Professor of Organization Studies, and the Director of the MIT Leadership
Center at MIT Sloan. Her pioneering research into how successful teams
operate has highlighted the critical importance of managing outside, as well
as inside, the team’s boundary. This research directly led to the concept of
X-Teams as a vehicle for driving innovation within large organizations.
She teaches in Neuroscience for Leadership (page 23) and Transforming
Your Leadership Strategy (page 23).

VIVEK FARIAS
“I enjoy teaching in Executive Education. Our participants are acutely
aware of the opportunity cost of their time. This awareness makes them
eager to soak up every last morsel I have to offer in my lectures. At the
same time, their diverse experiences across sectors and verticals adds
a tremendous amount of context, color, and even counterpoints to the
pedagogy. As such, I feel like I come away from a session rejuvenated
and having learned as much as my students.”
Vivek Farias is the Patrick J. McGovern (1959) Professor and an Associate
Professor of Operations Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
His research focuses on the development of new methodologies for large-

scale dynamic optimization under uncertainty, and the application of these


methodologies to the design of practical revenue management strategies across
various industries ranging from airlines and retail to online advertising. He
teaches in Developing a Leading Edge Operations Strategy (page 31).

FACULTY CORNER

ROBERTO RIGOBON
“The world has become increasingly complex. Populism, central banking
decisions, and trade wars are affecting companies everywhere. I love the
fact that our participants bring the experience of how their businesses are
affected by the global environment and share that dose of reality in our
discussions. Macroeconomics should be intuitive, relevant, and fun. Their
knowledge complements our discussions perfectly.”
Roberto Rigobon is an economist whose research focuses on the causes
of balance-of-payments crises, financial crises, and the propagation of them
across countries——the phenomenon of contagion. He is the Society of Sloan
Fellows Professor of Management and a Professor of Applied Economics at
MIT Sloan. He is also a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic
Research, a member of the Census Bureau’s Scientific Advisory Committee, and
a Visiting Professor at Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración in
Venezuela. Roberto teaches in Blockchain Technologies: Business Innovation and
Application (self-paced online) (page 31) and Understanding Global Markets:
Macroeconomics for Executives (page 23).

JEANNE ROSS
“Executive Education sessions provide a lab for sharing findings, testing
frameworks, and planning how to apply useful insights. I thoroughly enjoy
the opportunity to engage deeply with thoughtful practitioners.”
Jeanne W. Ross is a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Center for Information
Systems Research (CISR), where she directs and conducts academic research that
targets the challenges of senior level executives at CISR’s more than eighty global
sponsor companies. She studies how firms develop competitive advantage through
the implementation and reuse of digitized platforms. She teaches in Revitalizing
Your Digital Business Model (page 29).

SENIOR DIRECTOR, ENTERPRISE SUPPLY CHAIN GLOBAL


PLANNING AND INNOVATION, JOHNSON AND JOHNSON

MIT Sloan Executive Certificate holder Neil Ackerman has many achievements
to his credit, from inventing and managing Amazon’s global Small and Light
program to spearheading Mondelez International’s direct-to-consumer supply chain
models. Leveraging his outstanding leadership agility, and with 10 patents to his name,
he is now a senior director of supply chain planning and innovation for global healthcare
giant Johnson and Johnson. Neil acknowledges that he’s been on an amazing journey—
one in which MIT played a significant role.

When Neil first came to MIT in 2008, it was to pursue an MIT Sloan Executive Certificate
in Strategy and Innovation. During his programs, Neil learned that nothing happens
without an efficient and effective supply chain. “I immediately began developing
frameworks for applying what I learned to my work. And it’s how I discovered my
MIT SLOAN EXECUTIVE EDUCATION

passion for supply chain.” Neil returned to MIT Sloan in 2010 to earn an Executive
Certificate in Management and Leadership, with the goal of deepening his skills in
those areas as well.

“I’m not naïve about what MIT Sloan Executive Certificates has done
for me. In addition to the skills and frameworks you can acquire,
it’s important to realize that the reputation of MIT Sloan is
very meaningful in the business world.”

Mia Hemmi is an Account Director at one of the largest advertising/


marketing communications agencies in Japan, headquartered in Tokyo.
In 2016, her husband relocated to participate in an academic program in
Cambridge. Mia was on childcare leave, so she decided to join him and commit to an
academic adventure of her own. She scoured the websites of many programs but was
most intrigued by MIT’s fusion of management and science, which she felt resonated with
the direction her industry was headed. Over the course of a few months, Mia earned her
Advanced Certificate for Executives in Management, Innovation, and Technology (ACE).

“Earning the ACE was very attractive to me, as I wanted to be able to network within
the MIT ecosystem as an MIT Sloan affiliate alumna. This is important, as I believe
MIT is and will remain a leading institution.” Mia also enjoyed making connections

with colleagues from all over the world. “It feels like we've spent years together.”

Mia took a deep dive with intensive programs like the Global Executive

CHARLES BETITO FILHO


BRAZIL

FOUNDER AND BOARD MEMBER, HIVE DIGITAL MEDIA


• MEDITATION TEACHER

Charles Betito Filho has been an entrepreneur and marketing executive for 18 years,
founding Hive Digital Media in 2004 and leading it to become one of Brazil’s premiere
marketing technology companies. He is also deeply passionate about promoting clarity
and compassion in the business world, which is why he has been studying and practicing
mindfulness meditation for more than 12 years. He is currently the President of the board of
Hive and holds the Executive Director position at a meditation center in São Paulo.

Charles originally came to MIT Sloan Executive Education to participate in the Global
Executive Academy. “I was looking for an institution that shared my outlook on
leadership as serving a larger purpose, helping humanity, and I found this at MIT. But
this extraordinary quality— that was the big surprise.”

After GEA, Charles decided he wanted more. “So, I sat down and, in three hours,
created my calendar for the rest of the year.” He has since earned his Advanced
MIT SLOAN EXECUTIVE EDUCATION

Certificate for Executives in Management, Innovation, and Technology (ACE).

“What amazes me most is not just the intellect at MIT but the desire
to create impact in the world in the most positive way. Much
more than profiteering, people here are interested
in creating a better future. I was thrilled
to be a part of this.”
