Map the program to your goals.
When you join the MIT Sloan Fellows Program, you join a cohort of 100+ fellows representing more than two dozen countries and as many industries. Your goals are just as distinct. Maybe you are preparing to head a family real estate development and construction enterprise in Australia or to assume the role of CEO at a multinational corporation. Maybe you’re ready to launch an alternative energy company or to create an innovative health collective in inner-city Mumbai.
Diverse goals require diverse paths of learning. The MIT Sloan Fellows Program gives you the flexibility you need to achieve your own distinct objectives while working in intense and creative collaborations. In the MIT Sloan Fellows experience, you have the opportunity to
- choose from more than 100 electives offered by top faculty across the Institute and at neighboring institutions like Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government or Harvard Business School
- pursue an MIT Sloan MBA or a Master of Science (SM) in Management
- build a foundation of core business and leadership skills that will serve your goals
- organize or participate in global projects and field trips that relate specifically to your personal or professional goals
- work with members of the faculty, the MIT community, and researchers and innovators across Cambridge–Boston to gain an advanced understanding of issues that concern you and your organization
- participate in hands-on experiences that strengthen your knowledge and skills—such as the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition
While no two fellows follow exactly the same curriculum, they continually share what they’re learning with one another. The end result is an invigorating exchange of knowledge that magnifies each fellow’s personal program experience.
In New Zealand, we are great innovators, but we are not commercializing or exporting nearly enough. As a CEO and a passionate New Zealander, I need to fix that. Just a couple of weeks in, I’m already building a powerful global network and tapping into MIT’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. This is exactly where I need to be right now.Sarah Kennedy, SF '11
