MIT Sloan Intensive Period

15.005 Sloan Intensive Period (SIP) is an MBA degree requirement and a unique learning experience that encourages the practice of leadership, collaboration, and innovation, exposing students to timely management topics. Taught by MIT Sloan faculty and vetted external practitioners, this mid-semester Spring experience complements regular semester classes. Themes for SIP focus heavily on the mission of MIT Sloan of developing “principled, innovative leaders.” Regular semester Sloan classes pause during Spring SIP week for students to fully engage in the immersive and intensive learning that occurs through participating in SIP activities.

Elective SIP offerings include a diverse set of experiences such as on-campus 3-day practical skill-building sessions, on-site visits as part of an Action Learning Lab course, Study Tours, and Track trips.

All MBA students complete only one Spring term of 15.005. This course is credit-bearing and an MBA degree requirement.  LGO students are not required to complete Spring 15.005 SIP.
