Diversity and inclusion At MIT Sloan, we not only welcome diverse perspectives, but see them as a critical ingredient in our uniquely collaborative and creative environment. When people from different backgrounds come together to develop and test an idea, invention happens. MIT Sloan offers clubs for all interests and students organize conferences for global regions, women, and minorities. The activities of 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 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. The MIT Sloan Africa Business Club The MIT Sloan Africa Business Club (ABC) builds awareness of Africa’s promise while increasing investment in the continent’s consumer, agricultural, natural resource, and infrastructure sectors. It is a resource for prospective students, promotes MIT Sloan in Africa, and seeks to unite alumni in Africa or of African descent. 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.
