Faculty research projects management's future

MIT Sloan has its roots in questions posed by Alfred P. Sloan and others about the science of management. It's fitting then that the School mark its 50th year with a new set of questions about the future of management.

In fall 2001 the School asked some of its leading faculty to tackle today's most vexing questions in management. They answered those questions with research papers and presentations at our 50th anniversary celebration, Oct. 10-12, 2002.
