  • Reunion Weekend 2014

    Reunion was held June 5-8, 2014

    Over 1,700 alumni and friends from 39 countries returned to Cambridge in early June to celebrate Reunion 2014 and the Centennial of Course XV. All MIT Sloan graduate programs were represented during the weekend. Many of them participated in a variety of events, including alumni workshops, various tours around Boston, Tech Night at the Pops, the Centennial Colloquium, a wide range of faculty sessions, a Celebration Reception, the MIT Sloan Family Barbecue, and much more. Reunion Weekend is the perfect opportunity for alumni to return to campus to reconnect with friends, faculty, and MIT Sloan.

    Thank you to the more than 160 Reunion Committee members who helped build this year’s programing and encouraged classmates to participate in the MIT Sloan Reunion Class Gift, raising over $2.9M in gifts and pledges across the Institute.
