The MIT Leadership Center

is a team dedicated to helping students develop and practice as leaders during their time at Sloan. Through the courses and programs we offer, students are encouraged to think critically about leadership at the individual level, the team level, and the organizational or societal level.

Executive Coaching at the MIT Leadership Center

The Leadership Center works with a cadre of professional executive coaches who engage with the Executive MBA and Sloan Fellows MBA students as part of their degree programs. The Leadership Center coaches also play a pivotal role in the support of students who take any one of our three foundational leadership courses; 15.S74 ID Lab, 15.S03 Teams Lab and 15.S18 Organizations Lab.
