Events

Come home to MIT Sloan, wherever you are.

In the MIT Sloan community, an uncommon thread links us: our shared mission to make a better world. Please join us for an event in a city near you to celebrate MIT Sloan’s ideas made to matter, and get a glimpse of the future we can create together.

As part of MIT’s Campaign for a Better World series, events will be hosted by Dean David Schmittlein. Space is limited—please find your local event below and reserve your spot today.
