yes, but only if the have the current working directory in your PATH environment setting.

$ ./[filename]

and it says "look in the current directory".  That will work.  Another problem might be that the file is not marked as being executable (Linux does not use *.exe for this purpose).  If you're still having problems, then this can be fixed by

$ man chmod
to find out what you're doing, then
$ chmod a+x ./[filename]

To add the current working directory to your path, try
PATH=.:$PATH
