"The opportunity to study non-business subjects at a B-School was a big factor behind me in selecting MIT Sloan, and my choice has been vindicated."
Direction from Boston Logan Airport
You can get to MIT Sloan from Boston Logan Airport by taxi or by public transportation on the MBTA (the "T") subway system.
Your taxi driver will likely recognize the MIT Sloan name and our 50 Memorial Drive address. If additional information is needed, ask to be taken to the eastern end of the MIT campus just west of the Longfellow Bridge in Cambridge.
By Public Transportation
If you choose to use the T to get to MIT from Logan Airport, take the free airport shuttle bus from your terminal to Airport Station, which is on the Blue Line of the T. Take an inbound Blue Line train to the Government Center stop. Then walk up one flight of stairs and take a westbound Green Line trolley to the next stop, Park Street. Here, you can take an outbound Red Line train by walking down one flight of stairs to the Alewife platform. The Kendall Square stop, where the MIT Sloan campus is located, is just two stops away.

“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.”

“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."
