Diversity and Representation
There are MIT Sloan student clubs for all interests and affinity groups. The clubs organize activities that support their members and that address business topics of importance to global regions, women, and underrepresented populations. The activities of the broader MIT community, coupled with the international and diverse cities of Cambridge and Boston, create a rich educational environment. Just a sample of our diverse clubs are described here.
The MIT Sloan Black Business Students Association
The MIT Sloan Black Business Students Association (BBSA) builds a community that supports the personal and professional goals of black students. The BBSA promotes business issues related to the black community, collaborates with groups across MIT and Greater Boston, and works to build alliances with people and organizations that value cultural diversity.
The Hispanic Business Club
The Hispanic Business Club (HBC) increases interaction with alumni, undergraduates, and students in other graduate programs at MIT. The club fosters professional and personal development and encourages leadership, both within MIT Sloan and in the greater Hispanic community.
