For students

Why MIT Sloan Action Learning?

Whether you are considering furthering your education at MIT Sloan or are one of our current students, welcome!  The Action Learning experience is something that sets MIT Sloan apart from its peers, and will remain with you far past your graduation date.  The opportunity to learn by doing, invoke and inspire real change, and meaningfully contribute to societal and business problems and issues is repeatedly cited by our students as one of the highlights of their graduate school career.

Priscilla Liu | MBA '21 (MPA '22, Harvard Kennedy School)
Fin-Lab was an amazing opportunity to dive deep into a highly impactful and relevant topic, while honing our finance toolkit beyond an academic setting.

Learn by doing

Action Learning is a chance to utilize your learnings from the core curriculum, flex your leadership muscle and collaborate with like-minded, intelligent and motivated peers.
