A Year Made to Matter

Dear Alumni and Friends,
We are proud to offer our community the 2018–2019 “A Year Made to Matter” report—the annual review of where we have been and where we will go with your continued support.

This year, one thing is clear to all of us in the MIT Sloan community: Momentum is on our side. Our commitment to driving positive change enables us to propel advances that will define the future of management education for generations to come and that will empower our leaders to create a more inclusive economy.

Our success is tied to the work we have done and can only do together—from launching landmark, cross-disciplinary initiatives like the Schwarzman College of Computing to advancing groundbreaking research in innovation and analytics; from making critical program additions to expanding local and global opportunities for students and faculty to take on economic development issues. None of this would be possible without the ongoing participation of alumni and friends like you.

When you consider the global salience of the socially minded technologies and models that we invent here; the applications of our models to improve health, tackle climate change, and create better organizations; and the impact of our programs and leaders working in and for the world, it feels as if more is possible now.

As you read our latest report, we hope you will find as many reasons as we do to reflect positively on the past year and to welcome the year ahead. Together, we can and will make our mission to improve the world matter—not just for the few, but for all of humankind.
