Letter from the Dean (continued)

This special edition of MIT Sloan provides a window into that leadership. “The Startup Files” (page 4) gives voice to the innovative, entrepreneurial spirit of our students, and shares how they maximize MIT resources to bring exciting new ventures into the world. Research briefs from Professors Catherine E. Tucker, Andrew W. Lo, and Fiona E. Murray highlight the breadth and depth of MIT Sloan’s thought leadership, as well as our faculty members’ commitment to providing relevant, timely insights that drive positive change. Our feature article on the work of Professor Erik Brynjolfsson and Principal Research Scientist Andrew McAfee exemplifies a hallmark of research at MIT Sloan—a firm and true commitment to predicting and preparing for transformative changes in business and society.

As the dean of the School, I am inspired daily through interactions with our faculty and students. It is my firm hope that this special issue and future issues of MIT Sloan will bring some of that inspiration to you, our alumni. You are part of the story that is MIT Sloan. Please accept my gratitude for all you do for the School, the Institute, and the world.

Best regards,

David Schmittlein
John C Head III Dean
