How to find us
Come visit MIT Sloan.
The MBA Admissions Office is located on the third floor of Building E52, 50 Memorial Drive in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We are open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays.
Your taxi driver should recognize the MIT Sloan name and our Memorial Drive address. If your driver needs additional information, ask to be taken to the eastern end of the MIT campus just west of the Longfellow Bridge in Cambridge.
By Public Transportation — from any “T” transit stop
Boston's public transportation system, fondly known as the “T,” was America’s first subway and boasts a comprehensive grid of underground and surface trains, trolleys, and buses.
To find MIT Sloan, go to any subway station. Inside the station, look for the color-coded map of the subway system. We are located on the Red Line at the Kendall Square Station. MBTA website
To walk to the MBA Admissions Office from Kendall Square, look for the bank sign at the corner of Main Street and Wadsworth Street. Take a right on Wadsworth, cross the street, and walk half a block toward the Charles River, and you will reach the MIT Sloan plaza. When you walk up the steps to the plaza, the MIT Sloan Dewey Library is straight ahead and the entrance to Building E52 is on the right. The Admissions Office is on the third floor or E52.
By Public Transportation from Logan Airport
Access to MIT Sloan from Logan Airport on the “T” transit system is straightforward. Take the free Silver Line bus to South Station and get on the outbound Red Line subway to Kendall Square. The Kendall Square stop is just four stops away.
You can easily find MIT Sloan on a map of Cambridge. We are beside the Charles River, between the Longfellow and Harvard Bridges. We recommend that you park your car at the nearest public (pay) lot marked on our online map, and walk to Main Street. Free parking is available on Memorial Drive, but please be aware that spaces are scarce during business hours, and parking regulations are strictly enforced.
If you are driving to Cambridge from the north or west, consider leaving your car in the commuter-parking garage at Alewife Station, the northernmost stop on the Red Line. Alewife Station is located on Route 2 just before you enter Cambridge — look for the round white “T” sign. The subway ride from Alewife to the Kendall Square Station is five stops and takes about 20 minutes.
If you are driving in from the south, you can leave your car in the commuter-parking garage on the Southeast Expressway in Quincy. This well-marked "T" station is one of the southernmost stops on the Red Line. The ride to Kendall from here takes about 25 minutes.
“Because of the diversity of our backgrounds, when we hit the ground in Tanzania it almost was a natural play where different people assume different roles.”
"The relationships that we forged helped us to turn out a better project. We were able to test our hypotheses with the people that we spoke with every single day. And really, I think the friendships that you develop really propel the work that you’re doing."
“[The India Lab] program is one of the reasons I came to Sloan. ... The hands-on learning that MIT offers was a huge differentiator.”
“The concept behind enterprise architecture is that you have all these machines, you have all these business processes, you have all these people doing things, how do you make sure they all come together and achieve business objectives that make you more competitive.”
“I can honestly say that when I was planning on coming to business school I never thought that witnessing the birth of a child would be included in the education. It was definitely an experience.”
“I came to Sloan because of its high rankings within the sustainability community, specifically the professors. The S-Lab class itself is part of what drew me to Sloan. And the reason I came to business school was to learn the business speak that really is what connects with people."
“I knew about American business, but not enough about what’s really become a global economy. … You can read about it all you want, but there’s no substitute for being there and seeing the context and seeing how completely different these [other countries] are.”
“One of the reasons I came to Sloan was because I wanted to be at a top MBA institution worldwide. But I also wanted access to working with the latest innovations and the highest technology that was coming out of the MIT labs.”
“We’re very interdisciplinary. Among the faculty in the group are an economist, a political scientist, a sociologist, and an industrial relations specialist. We’ve always made a big effort to be open to a variety of perspectives, but also to go beyond being open to them, to want to bring them in, because it makes for a richer environment.”
“At MIT Sloan you have a lot of opportunities to explore entrepreneurship. Especially in a place like Kampala where you have a lot of development, entrepreneurship can be very exciting.”
“Our mission, along with the mission of MIT Sloan, is to both develop leaders who make a difference in the world, and also to make a contribution to thinking about the topic of leadership.”
“I love being in a place that is such a nexus of people and ideas — people coming to learn something new and to define themselves. Being a part of that process is a real honor and a real gift.”
“The conditions in the neighborhoods we were visiting were different than what we realized before getting there. Beyond that, what was surprising was that there weren’t surprises!”
“It was really rewarding that they wanted to know what we thought. We left there being fairly certain that they will do some of the things that we suggested.”
“Faculty research gets into the classroom very quickly. Students have the appetite and the capability for it. Shortening that delay means the cases are current and relevant to the issues that are top of mind.”
