In addition to teaching core written and oral communication skills, the Managerial Communication faculty is very involved in MIT Sloan’s most important and groundbreaking initiatives. Faculty members teach many action learning-related courses, including China Lab, India Lab, G-Lab, and the international study tours. The MIT Sloan Innovation Period features many courses on leadership, negotiation, and writing that are developed and taught by Managerial Communication faculty.

Areas of individual faculty interest and research include: examining communication and information as they shape and are shaped by technologies and policies over time; professional ethics (with a focus on ethics and management); working in teams; conflict and conflict resolution; leadership; and cross-cultural communication.
