At the MIT Leadership Center, we are deeply committed to leadership development. In partnership with MIT Sloan’s degree programs (MBA, MFin, MBAn, EMBA, and Sloan Fellows) we work to ensure that leadership is embedded in the curriculum and part of the overall MIT Sloan experience. In addition to the academic frameworks that students are introduced to in our courses, there are multiple opportunities that the Center supports for practice and skill development.
During orientation for all programs (Sloan Fellows, LGO, MFin, MSMS, MBA, and EMBA) leadership themes are tied closely to the mission of the school, especially to principled leadership. Activities and programs related to orientation also begin to introduce students to team and group dynamics.
Common orientation activities across programs include the MIT Sloan 4-Capabilites Leadership Framework, the x360 Leadership Development survey and coaching program, and an outdoor experiential team activity held off campus at the Warren Center.
For more details on specific program orientation events please contact your program advisor or administrator.
The iLead Series at MIT
The Innovative Leadership (iLead) Series (formerly known as the Dean’s Innovative Leader Series or DILS) at MIT celebrates innovative individuals who make a difference in the world. These leaders operate at the leading edge and transform today’s organizations and communities by challenging common assumptions, and creating new structures, new business models, and new modes of organizing at all levels of the traditional structure. The MIT Leadership Center, in partnership with MIT Sloan School of Management, invite distinctive individuals to participate in The iLead Series who embody these qualities and who, in their actions, exhibit the best aspects of what it means to be a principled, innovative leader.
MBA Core Fellows
Working in collaboration with the MIT Leadership Center and the Career Development and MBA Program Offices, the MBA Core Fellows are leaders and highly committed students who significantly influence building community at Sloan and serve as resources for first-year Sloanies transitioning to the diverse academic, intellectual, and social culture here. Core Fellows serve as accountability partners through the core experience, linking career education and the internship search and help to create an environment where both risks and collaborative ideas are valued methods by which to learn and improve.
