The MIT Sloan Information Technology Group researches the economic, social, and organizational implications of the digital technologies that transform the way we live and work. The group’s legendary strength is, in part, a function of being rooted at one of the world’s most respected business schools within one of the world’s most influential institutions of technology.
The IT Group faculty covers all the key disciplines comprising the study of IT from economics to organizational studies to computer science. Faculty and students in the MIT Sloan IT Group work closely with industry partners and with research centers like the MIT Center for Digital Business, the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, and the MIT Center for Information Systems Research to conduct ground-breaking research. Their goal: shape the future of the digital economy so that it benefits all participants.
Consistently ranked among the best IT doctoral program in the nation, the IT Group attracts some of the most gifted students in the field. The program, nearly a half-century old, is small and selective, typically admitting fewer than five percent of applicants. Graduates of the program have gone on to distinguished careers in academia at some of the most widely respected institutions of higher learning in the world.
