    MIT

    Management education has been part of MIT since 1914, when the Institute first offered a course in engineering administration. Over time, that course grew to become the MIT Sloan School. Today, from shared research centers like the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship to joint degree programs like our Leaders for Global Operations and System Design and Management offerings, our ties to MIT are many and deep. MIT Sloan students have access to a wealth of resources at MIT and often work closely with their peers at the Institute to bring new ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace.
