MIT Sloan toasts the centennial of Course 15 with a party for students, faculty, alumni, staff, and senior leadership

More than 800 people were on hand to raise a glass and celebrate the 100th anniversary of management education at MIT on April 9 on the MIT Sloan campus in Cambridge. The anniversary of Course 15, which was established at MIT in 1914 and grew to become the MIT Sloan School of Management, provided the community an opportunity to reflect on its history and look ahead to the next 100 years.
