MIT Sloan Intensive Period
Regular Sloan classes pause mid-semester for students to fully engage in the immersive and intensive learning that occurs through participating in SIP activities. The MBA Program Office, MIT Leadership Center, selected Action Learning Labs, Tracks, MIT Sloan Student Life, and MIT Centers organize this program.
15.002 Leadership Challenges for an Inclusive World
In 15.002 Leadership Challenges for an Inclusive World, students will explore the complexities of diversity, equity, inclusion, and ethics using a System Dynamics framework developed at MIT. Over the span of the two and half-day course, students will choose a discipline-specific ethics workshop to attend, engage in an immersive simulation activity, and participate in both faculty-led learning and facilitated peer conversations about leading within systemically biased systems.
This course is credit-bearing and an MBA degree requirement.
LGO students participate in the Ethics workshops only for 15.002.
15.005 Sloan Intensive Period (SIP)
15.005 Sloan Intensive Period (SIP) is an MBA degree requirement and a unique learning experience that encourages the practice of leadership, collaboration, and innovation, exposing students to timely management topics. Taught by MIT Sloan faculty and vetted external practitioners, this mid-semester experience complements regular semester classes. Themes for SIP focus heavily on the mission of MIT Sloan of developing “principled, innovative leaders.”
