“People and Profits” Class Highlighted by Bloomberg

A new Bloomberg article on the growth of MBA offerings focused on the future of work features MIT Sloan’s “People and Profits” class, an innovative course both developed and currently taught by IWER faculty.

The article, titled “Columbia, MIT Explore the Future of Work With New Business School Courses” notes that MIT Sloan Assistant Professor Anna Stansbury, who teaches “People and Profits,” requires students to interview frontline workers as part of the class.
