Dear Alumni,

We are delighted to share a special issue of the MIT Sloan Alumni Magazine with you; one that is devoted to invention and the entrepreneurial spirit. This is a magazine that reflects the significant work being done by our faculty to drive innovations in management practice across multiple industries and professions.

You will notice some differences in this issue—for example, three faculty research briefs, rather than the usual one. Why this change? Because what you tell us, and our colleagues on the road, is that you want more knowledge. You want access to the groundbreaking research being done by MIT Sloan faculty, and you want to hear about the new ventures being started by our students. You are profoundly interested in the Initiative on the Digital Economy as exhibited by the fact that more than 500 of you attended conferences in Cambridge and San Francisco this year to learn more. You also want to see MIT Sloan’s global presence expand (take a look at the map on pages 14 — 15). We hope that this special issue of MIT Sloan provides a window into all these things and that you will let us know what else you want to hear about. This is your magazine, and an opportunity for us, as a School, to share with you what is happening on campus and beyond. To share feedback and ideas, please email us: editor@mitsloan.mit.edu.

In the meantime, we hope that you enjoy learning about the innovative work being done at MIT Sloan and that you find it as exciting and interesting as we do.

Best regards,

Catherine Canney
