“At MIT Sloan, you will find faculty engaging in many different kinds of research and multiple forms of pedagogy that, taken together, reflect the value of a wide range of perspectives, skills, and expertise in organizations.”

"At home I play a different role. I am the instructor. Here I am a student. I sit in the professors’ classrooms. Sloan has very participant-centered learning. Students learn from each other. We play different roles, keep relationships with each other. I know what the students really care about. It has been an interesting experience."
