Research Centers

The MIT Sloan ecosystem supports a dynamic network of research groups concentrating on problems vital to today's world. Many of these research centers are interdisciplinary think tanks bringing together researchers from a range of fields to solve complex problems. Groups like the MIT Center for Digital Business and the MIT Entrepreneurship Center are writing the rules of the road for emerging businesses.

The common denominator of all these groups is that they're grounded in business and industry. Faculty and students work closely with leaders in the field to meet challenges that have a powerful impact on everyday business and everyday life. More than 100 organizations sponsor nearly $12 million in research every year at MIT Sloan. This highly productive collaboration fuels innovation, energizes the educational environment, and helps companies solve their greatest challenges.
