Comcast's Armstrong addresses students

Chairman of Comcast Corp. Michael Armstrong with students

February, 2003 — Michael Armstrong, chairman of Comcast Corp. and former Chairman & CEO of AT&T, spoke to MIT Sloan students Feb. 12 in Wong Auditorium. He was hosted by the Sloan Mediatech Club.

Armstrong and Comcast operate at the heart of the evolving communication services industry. Comcast Corporation, formed from the merger of Comcast and AT&T Broadband, has more than 21.4 million subscribers and an aggregate value of approximately $60 billion.

Prior to assuming his current position, Armstrong was chairman and CEO of AT&T, a position he had held since 1997. Before then, he was chairman and CEO of Hughes Electronics, and previously he had spent more than three decades with IBM.

Armstrong is among many corporate leaders who come to MIT Sloan to speak to students — both to share their perspectives and to engage students in a dialogue over innovation in management.

MIT Sloan clubs, like the Mediatech Club, play a vital role in enabling students to engage corporate leaders. Each year they host dozens of leaders from a wide range of industries.

MIT Sloan founder Alfred P. Sloan, Jr. was dedicated to the innovation ethic. “Too often,” he said, “we fail tribute to the creative spirit.”
