Leadership gifts in support of the School’s
key research and curricular priorities have the power to transform the MIT
Sloan experience for everyone in our community. These gifts build buildings,
name centers, create new courses, and allow our faculty to pursue their
research. They provide for MIT Sloan today and will allow the School to thrive
in the future.
The Initiative for the Digital Economy (IDE) is a major effort addressing the impact of digital technology on businesses, the economy, and society. Drawing upon MIT Sloan’s strengths in technology and innovation, its internationally recognized faculty, and over a decade of research and partnership with MIT Sloan’s Center for Digital Business, the new Initiative will analyze the broad sociological changes brought about by digital technology. Many of the key issues are described in a recent book by Professor Erik Brynjolfsson and Dr. Andrew McAfee, Race Against the Machine - How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy.Read More
Where social and environmental responsibility were once viewed in competition with business profit, we are now beginning to understand their relationship as complementary; it can be profitable to do the right thing. MIT Sloan is helping show the way toward that alignment of business and societal goals. This has been the fundamental project of the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative since its launch in 2007. Achieving sustainable business and society means shifting the global conversation about sustainability. While the term has become synonymous with environmental awareness and reducing ecological footprints, real sustainability involves much more. MIT Sloan sees it as deeply integrating economic development, social equity and vitality, and environmental restoration. Read More
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.
The recent financial crisis has underscored the importance of well-functioning financial markets to global economic growth and stability. It has also revealed significant weaknesses that will require informed responses by government decision makers. Often, though, policymakers and public employees lack the financial savvy, training, and analytical support for optimal decision-making and financial management. The MIT Center for Finance and Policy (CFP), a cross-disciplinary effort drawing on the strengths of faculty and departments across the Institute, is intended to fill this knowledge gap and support the policymakers and government officials who are responsible for managing our nation’s complex financial systems and allocating trillions of dollars of capital each year.
The MIT Sloan Initiative for Health Systems Innovation (IHSI) is providing new opportunities for our faculty and students to do inventive work that strengthens the global health system. IHSI is defining a new model of research with collaborative teams comprised of academics from across MIT, clinicians, and health industry leaders who develop new models and management practices, as well as analytical concepts and tools to improve complex health systems. These new models have a global reach and will lead to transforming management, clinical practices, and system designs in some of the leading medical institutions in the world. Initial projects and research have already shown high value for partner organizations such as Massachusetts General Hospital, where this Initiative has helped implement new procedures that reduce wait times for surgery.
With entrepreneurship and innovation being key themes across MIT, the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship is poised to play a critical role in cross-campus collaborations, external outreach, and knowledge growth. The Trust Center provides the expertise, support, and connections needed for MIT students to become effective entrepreneurs.Read More
Fellowships provide critical financial support for students. Lack of financial assistance in the form of fellowships is generally the top reason why admitted students decline MIT Sloan. Our peer schools are able to provide significantly more fellowship aid both in terms of dollars (our average: $12,000 per year; peer school average: $25,000 per year) and in the percent of tuition covered by financial aid (ours: 12%; peers: 30-55%). In an effort to increase the percentage of admitted students who enroll from approximately 65% over the past five years, we must be able to provide increased financial support. Our current goal is to support 25% of MBA and MFin students with average annual awards of $25,000.
Invest in the next generation of principled, innovative leaders and support the future of MIT Sloan.
