For more than five decades, MIT Sloan has been a leader in management education, research, and practice. In May, Building the Future celebrated MIT Sloan’s distinguished legacy, ongoing evolution, and future promise, as well as the individuals—faculty, staff, alumni, students, and other supporters—who have contributed to MIT Sloan’s reputation and success.

MIT Sloan’s new flagship building, featuring the Joan and William A. Porter 1967 Center for Management Education, was the physical and intellectual center for Building the Future events. A dynamic platform for student-faculty collaboration, the building represents a new era for MIT Sloan—one defined by a strong sense of community and cross-disciplinary innovation.

Over the course of the three-day celebration in May, the Porter Center for Management Education served as the focal point for a series of thought-provoking and entertaining events, from the faculty-driven Exchange 62 colloquium to the traditional academic and social events of Alumni Weekend.

All these activities took place within the context of MIT’s 150th anniversary observance, which celebrated the Institute’s outstanding accomplishments and continued leadership on the global stage.
