MIT's Sloan School of Management is the leader in Action Learning in management education and has held that esteemed position for several decades. Our approach to Action Learning integrates theory, real-world practice, and personal reflection to develop principled, innovative leaders
who solve complex problems and produce systemic changes.
"MIT is all about the ideas that change the world, not just being invented here, but being brought out into the world. And MIT uses the creation and implementation of those ideas as the best way in the world to structure learning for our students. It's about learning in action, concept based real learning, learning by doing. If MIT is about the ideas that change the world, then organizations are the way that ideas change the world," states David Schmittlein, John C Head III Dean of MIT Sloan School of Management.
Our Action Learning programs are life changing—for the students who participate, the companies with whom they work, and the people across the world who are influenced by the groundbreaking project work that is part of every Action Learning endeavor.
