MIT Sloan. Ideas Made to Matter.

The mission of the MIT Sloan School of Management is to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world and to generate ideas that advance management practice.

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 tools you can apply to your own work.
