MORE INFORMATION FOR OUR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

The leader in experiential learning

MIT’s motto, mens et manus, translates from Latin to mind and hand. With intention, MIT’s founders were promoting, above all, that education was for practical application. At MIT Sloan, we seek to apply knowledge and skill in a way that benefits the world. 

Simply put, it's not enough to sit in an ivory tower and think about stuff all day—you have to go out in the world and make use of it.

Experiential learning is a centerpiece of the MBA experience. We integrate hands-on learning opportunities throughout the curriculum. Through Action Learning labs, MIT Sloan Intensive Period, and the MIT Independent Activities Period,  you practice these management skills over and over again.

Think. Act. Reflect. (Repeat.)

Our students are relentlessly experimental, challenging convention and tempting failure. You'll collaborate across MIT and seek out new, diverse perspectives—because that's just how we do things here.

Leadership in Action

Now Reading 3 of 7

We welcome wicked problems.

Daunting problems demand ingenuity. We are attracted to and eager to expend incredible amounts of energy on challenges that would intimidate others. These wicked problems—social or cultural problems that are difficult or impossible to solve: climate change, poverty, health care—these are the problems worth solving. And these are the problems that appeal to us the most.

First, define the problem.
From day one, MBA students are challenged to start every interaction with, "What problem are we trying to solve?" Bold leadership comes together when such brilliant minds take intelligent risks, unafraid of complexity and chaos, always searching for new and better ways.

Because we're not distracted by titles and accolades, we are free to bring together the right team to tackle the right problem—and with this as our orientation, new perspectives, answers, and opportunities emerge. This is at the heart of problem-led leadership.

Principled + Purposeful

We lead in a way that is defined by the problem, applying data-driven analysis and hands-on learning to achieve dramatic results.

Share a common purpose with uncommon people.

"If this past month was any indication of what the next two years are going to be like, then I'm nothing but excited about spending them here with these amazing people!" Chandrika Maheshwari, MBA 2019

There's no other way to say it: the next two years will fundamentally change you, your career trajectory, and your outlook on the world. MIT Sloan students are curious, authentic, and driven—and will expect the same of you.

Brazenly inquisitive, this community will challenge you to push past your comfort zone and see things from refreshingly new vantages. Every interaction, in and beyond the classroom, will exercise your leadership and analytical muscles in exhausting, but energizing ways.
