An MIT Sloan education is about finding ways to marry your passions with your principles. MIT Sloan is the only MBA program that delivers a top-tier management education while also giving students hands-on opportunities to apply what they’ve learned to the challenges of global sustainability. Our interdisciplinary approach leverages MIT’s expertise in science and technology and plugs this into MIT Sloan’s expertise in entrepreneurship, operations, supply chain, and management to develop innovative leaders who can make a real impact in the areas that matter most to them—and to the world.
Our students don’t see insurmountable problems—they see challenges that haven’t yet been overcome.
Using their expertise about the world’s greatest challenges, MIT Sloan professors engage students in finding connections among issues like energy use, poverty, and food systems. Our lectures, case studies, and Action Learning projects build on this “systems approach” helping students acquire the skills they need to assess complex issues and find innovative solutions.
MIT Sloan’s signature Action Learning Labs place students in organizations around the globe, so they can develop their growing expertise and help real organizations find innovative approaches to sustainability challenges. As Alice Hartley, MBA 2012 said of her experience in the Laboratory for Sustainable Business (S-Lab), “This wasn’t just a homework assignment. It was a real problem for a real company. Your ‘homework’ was going to have an impact on a company’s sustainability practices.”
For students prepared to go into greater depth than an individual course, we offer the unique MIT Sloan Sustainability Certificate.
