Overview

Building the Future: A Celebration of MIT Sloan

For more than five decades, MIT Sloan has been a leader in management education, research, and practice. Building the Future celebrated MIT Sloan’s distinguished legacy, ongoing evolution, and future promise, as well as the numerous individuals—faculty, staff, alumni, students, and other supporters—who have contributed to MIT Sloan’s reputation and success.

MIT Sloan’s new flagship building and the Joan and William A. Porter 1967 Center for Management Education provided the physical and intellectual center for Building the Future events. A dynamic platform for student-faculty collaboration, E62 represents a new era for MIT Sloan—one that is defined by a strong sense of community and cross-disciplinary innovation. Over the course of the three-day celebration in May, the Porter Center for Management Education served as the focal point for a series of thought-provoking and entertaining events, from the Exchange 62 colloquium to gatherings held in conjunction with Alumni Weekend 2011.

All of these activities took place in the context of MIT’s 150th anniversary observance, which celebrates the Institute’s outstanding accomplishments and continued leadership on the global stage.
