Why MIT Sloan?
MIT Sloan is a different kind of management school. We’re not iterating on a better widget or cashing in on the latest business fad. We’re not talking about management in the abstract.
As part of the world’s leading research institution, we’re bringing together today’s brightest minds to tackle global challenges. For real.
At the intersection of business and technology, we’re exploring the future of work. We’re launching companies that kick-start local economies in the developing world. We’re retooling systems to make health care work better and to engage people around the world in addressing climate change.
For students, this means different kinds of opportunities. Hands-on learning. Global experience. And a relentless focus on impact.
For faculty, this means different fields of research. New work in emerging areas that don’t fit into existing departments. And colleagues across MIT.
For alumni, this means a vibrant global network of like-minded innovators, ready to help you advance your career and turn your vision into reality.
For organizational leaders the world over, this means a wellspring of ideas and talent. Brilliant minds. Practical problem-solvers. Meaningful research and the tools you can apply to your own work.
MIT Sloan. Ideas made to matter.
MIT Sloan has a rich history of global engagement, and today our global footprint spans seven regions. Through collaborations with organizations, universities, and government agencies, we are helping to shape the perspective and knowledge of some of the world’s leading business leaders.
Our campus, surrounded by pioneering companies, vibrant culture and recreation, and MIT’s groundbreaking research labs, reflects the creative energy of our students and faculty.
MIT Sloan prides itself on welcoming students and faculty with a wide range of backgrounds, experience, and interests. The community is marked by its passion for solving problems and tackling big challenges, its respect for varied viewpoints, and a deep entrepreneurial spirit.
Campus life is a vibrant, ever-changing mix of opportunities and activities, with more than 60 student clubs and leadership organizations hosting events, planning conferences, and welcoming new members.
Management education has been part of MIT since 1914 when the Institute first offered a course in engineering administration. Our ties to MIT run deep: they range from shared research centers like the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship to dual degree programs like our Leaders for Global Operations and joint degree programs such as System Design and Management. Students have access to a wealth of MIT resources and often work closely with peers at the Institute to bring new ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace.
MIT Sloan is in the heart of Cambridge’s thriving Kendall Square neighborhood. The school is surrounded by biotech companies, tech giants, startups, and research labs, as well as a wide array of restaurants, outdoor activities, arts, music, and culture. And with nearly 60 colleges and universities in the Boston area, creative, intellectual energy is a key part of the fabric of the city.
