Changing the world is what MIT is about, and for more than half a century, the MIT Sloan School of Management has contributed heavily to the Institute's legacy of innovation. MIT Sloan develops innovative, principled leaders capable of meeting the challenges of a global economy and advancing management practice. MIT Sloan-educated leaders are transforming life and work in every facet of society in every corner of the globe.
The best reason to give to MIT Sloan is not simply because you are an alumnus and feel an obligation to the School. The best reason to contribute to MIT Sloan is because you believe in what the School stands for, and you support its work. It's because you want to help change the world through the powerful vehicle of global business.
As Richard Schmalensee, former John C Head III Dean of MIT Sloan, wrote in a Wall Street Journal editorial, succeeding in the global marketplace is but one component of a business school education in the 21st century. We must find “better ways to help our students understand what they can do in the business world to make a positive contribution to society, giving them the tools, skills, and perspectives they need to become managers who will add value to society—even as they do well for themselves,” he wrote.
To continue its mission, MIT Sloan must attract and retain the best faculty and students. It must also create an environment of inspired collaboration, encouraging lively and dynamic exchange and interaction within the School and across MIT. Interdisciplinary collaborations are among the most productive in today's world, and MIT Sloan is the ideal environment to make the most of such partnerships.
The collective support of our alumni community—contributions of funds, time, and expertise—enables us to continue the tradition of excellence in management education.
