Diversity and Representation
MIT Sloan offers clubs for all interests, including a number of affinity clubs. These clubs offer support for their members and organize conferences that address business topics relating to global regions, women, and underrepresented minorities. The activities of the broader MIT community, coupled with the international and diverse cities of Cambridge and Boston, create a rich educational environment. Just a sample of our diverse clubs are described here.
The Hispanic Business Club
The Hispanic Business Club (HBC) increases interaction with alumni, undergraduates, and students in other graduate programs at MIT. The club fosters professional and personal development and encourages leadership, both within MIT Sloan and in the greater Hispanic community.
The MIT Sloan Black Business Students Association
The MIT Sloan Black Business Students Association (BBSA) builds a community that supports the personal and professional goals of black students. The BBSA promotes business issues related to the black community, collaborates with groups across MIT and Greater Boston, and works to build alliances with people and organizations that value cultural diversity.
The MIT Sloan Africa Business Club
The MIT Sloan Africa Business Club (ABC) builds awareness of Africa’s promise while increasing investment in the continent’s consumer, agricultural, natural resource, and infrastructure sectors. It is a resource for prospective students, promotes MIT Sloan in Africa, and seeks to unite alumni in Africa or of African descent.
Diversity Visit Day – Fall 2019 TBA
Each semester, the admissions office hosts prospective applicants on campus to get a feel for the MIT Sloan culture and connect with current students from our diversity clubs.
Diversity Week Alumni Panels
This summer, the MIT Sloan Admissions team hosted Diversity Alumni Panels in 4 cities: Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., New York City, and Cambridge. The event featured a moderated alumni panel discussion and a networking reception with members of the MIT Sloan community.
MIT Sloan is committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all our students.
This commitment is carried out by multiple student service offices both at MIT and MIT Sloan. We have strong working partnerships with organizations that share our commitment to increasing and supporting enrollment of students from underrepresented communities. These organizations include:
