MIT Sloan: In The World.
For The World.

Dear MIT Sloan Alumni
and Friends,

With your help, MIT Sloan has successfully navigated these challenging times—enhancing our academic programs, increasing faculty impact, and expanding our global visibility.

Our new degree programs—the Master of Finance (M.Fin) and the Master of Science in Management Studies (MSMS)—have each attracted outstanding students, due in large part, to your enthusiastic support. This spring, we led our peer schools in MBA student job opportunities, surpassed our peers in MBA applications since 2007, established a record in applications for this fall's class, and realized a new standard of quality and diversity in the matriculating class. Faculty recruitment efforts were especially productive. Our mission-driven approach to management and strong fiscal discipline appeal to the best prospects.

Our MIT Sloan China Management Education Project continues to develop world-class management practice in that country. We expanded project-based learning in Brazil and India. In Africa, the new Global Health Delivery version of our G-Lab course assists NGOs in bringing financially stable, quality health care to the neediest communities. We are the founding sponsor for the Skolkovo School of Management. This new school is already the leading private business school in Russia, and is bringing MIT Sloan close to business leaders in that dynamic region.
