Though it was 20 years ago, Mariafrancesca Carli, SM ’92, has a vivid memory of the first day she stepped onto the MIT Sloan campus. “The first day I came to the United States, I came directly to MIT Sloan,” she recalls. “It was a summer day, and I’ll never forget the Charles River, the students, everything.” Carli’s fond memories of her time at MIT Sloan are an important part of why she continues to be an active member of the alumni community both philanthropically and as a member of the MIT Sloan North American Executive Board. “I feel particularly grateful to this school. I think it was a life–changing event for me both personally and professionally, and it’s a pleasure and important for me to remain connected and to try to help the School to do more.”

Now a managing director in the Financial Sponsors Group at J.P. Morgan after 15 years at Goldman Sachs, Carli is a generous supporter of the MIT Sloan Annual Fund and is a member of the Dean’s Circle. She is especially proud of the difference she sees MIT Sloan making in the world. Carli attributes this to two main factors: “One is the faculty and students…their purpose is really to tackle all of the issues around the world impacting us,” she says. “And the second part is the international nature of the place—the School forms a cohort of students that graduate and then go back home, or to new countries, like I did. And so they spread what they have learned—new ethics, new philosophy, a lot of research, and the motivation to do good.”
