In 1914 MIT created Course XV, which introduced the study of management at the Institute. These studies were the precursor to the MIT Sloan School of Management. We decided that this would be a wonderful time to celebrate this historic event with, among other things, a book that marks this centennial and captures the history of Course XV and the MIT Sloan School of Management.
The book will be published in February 2014.Collapse
This will not be a simple chronology of Course XV. Rather, using a series of reminiscences and essays, we will explore, through a number of themes the impact that Course XV and MIT Sloan have had on individuals, the Institute and the world throughout its history.
- Themes include:
- Innovation, Invention and Entrepreneurship
- Modern Finance
- Manufacturing and Product Development
- People and Organizations
- Mind and Hand: Theory in Action
- Our Global Footprint
- Building Community
In addition, the book will be richly illustrated with images culled from the MIT Archive, the MIT Museum and contributions from people like you.Collapse
Largely faculty and alumni, who will provide essays and reminiscences in their own words, as well as photographs and other artifacts that we can use to bring the book to live visually. We will chronicle people’s experiences at MIT Sloan as well as their perspectives on how the School’s work has affected the larger community.Collapse
We are looking for two kinds of submissions for content that may be selected to be included in the book.
Written reminiscences about your experience at the School as well as how those experiences have affected life personally and the world at large since leaving the School. We would love to hear both about your academic and interpersonal experiences as both contribute to the richness of your association with the institution.
Any physical artifacts, which could include photographs, correspondence, MIT Sloan logo items, ticket stubs, invitations, publications, etc. Anything that you feel should be captured as part of the history of the School. We would be happy to photograph items and return them or they can be donated to our ever-expanding repository of historical objects and papers that the School is developing.
Written contributions can be submitted directly to the MIT Sloan Office of Communications at email@example.com.
For those who would like to submit objects and photographs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make specific arrangements with you.
We have been delighted by the volume of alumni submissions we have received to date, and are giving each careful consideration. Space may prohibit use of all entries, but please know that each entry is essential in our work to create a complete and thoughtful volume.
Contributions should be submitted no later than March 8, 2013.Collapse
