"When we arrive, we’re told MIT’s culture is: “Mind and Hand”. That lights a spark in people who have that innate desire to get things done."
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.

"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."

“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.”
“We are very much an action-learning environment. The way to learn leadership is not only through reading cases, not only through learning theory — in fact we don’t want people to regurgitate the theory. We want people to take theory and to live it, use it.”
