Welcome to Sloan. Welcome to Course 15. MIT students are smart. They deserve a business curriculum that reflects this. Ours does. At MIT Sloan, we'll challenge you to expand your analytical and quantitative skills. We'll help you bring a business perspective to your technical expertise so you can do more with it. You'll do problem sets, but problem sets with a practical purpose, using business cases so you will learn not only how to get the answer, but also how to apply that answer. And we'll help you take your learning further. At MIT Sloan, knowing the answers is not enough. We want you to bring your ideas into the world. You'll learn how to explain and share your knowledge and inventions with the world and collaborate with others to build on them. We are MIT Sloan, also known at MIT as Course 15, Management Science. A Course 15 student can be a single major concentrating in Business Analytics and Operations Research. A double major with Course 18 (Mathematics) concentrating in Finance. A Course 2 (Mechanical Engineering) wanting to improve her soft skills by minoring in management. A Course 6 (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) wanting to enhance his analytical skills through a minor in management science. An aspiring entrepreneur who takes a couple of Marketing courses to help identify her customers. Or any MIT student whose parents said he or she should know something about business. We are all these things and more. Course 15 offers Undergraduate Research Opportunities, student clubs, entrepreneurship competitions, and community luncheons. Our students are as varied as the subjects we offer each year--more than 150 courses in 14 academic groups. Even with all their varied interests and backgrounds, our students have important things in common. They are smart. They are inventive. They are open to exploring difficult problems and determined to find the right solutions. We are Course 15. We are MIT Sloan. We are up to the challenge. Are you?
