    Rooted in the institute

    Management education has been part of MIT since 1914, when the Institute first offered a course in engineering administration. In 1930, when the president of General Motors, Alfred Sloan, grappled with the widening disconnect between his engineers and senior managers, he looked to his alma mater for a solution. MIT answered the call and created a program for engineers with executive potential. These “sponsored fellows” would build on their engineering foundation, but broaden their business knowledge so they could excel in executive leadership positions. Thus began the MIT Sponsored Fellowships program. Today, the MIT Sloan Fellows program brings together mid-career executives from around the world, from a variety of professions and industries; and gives them a forum for collaboration and growth.
