Celebrating Our Alumnae

By

For the second year in a row, the incoming MBA class is composed of 46% women. Many other degree programs at the MIT Sloan School of Management have also experienced similar increases.

“The thread of continuity here is the mission of MIT and MIT Sloan, which is to enable our students to identify and tackle the world’s biggest and most complex problems,” explains Dawna Levenson, SB ’83, SM ’84 (Assistant Dean of Admissions). “That was the focus when I was a student, and it remains at the heart of what we do today.”

To commemorate Women’s History Month in March and International Women’s Day on March 8, we celebrate our current students and highlight the many accomplished alumnae—like Assistant Dean Levenson—who came before them.
