Direction from Boston Logan Airport
You can get to MIT Sloan from Boston Logan Airport by taxi or by public transportation on the MBTA (the "T") subway system.
Your taxi driver will likely recognize the MIT Sloan name and our 50 Memorial Drive address. If additional information is needed, ask to be taken to the eastern end of the MIT campus just west of the Longfellow Bridge in Cambridge.
By Public Transportation
If you choose to use the T to get to MIT from Logan Airport, take the free airport shuttle bus from your terminal to Airport Station, which is on the Blue Line of the T. Take an inbound Blue Line train to the Government Center stop. Then walk up one flight of stairs and take a westbound Green Line trolley to the next stop, Park Street. Here, you can take an outbound Red Line train by walking down one flight of stairs to the Alewife platform. The Kendall Square stop, where the MIT Sloan campus is located, is just two stops away.

“We’re very interdisciplinary. Among the faculty in the group are an economist, a political scientist, a sociologist, and an industrial relations specialist. We’ve always made a big effort to be open to a variety of perspectives, but also to go beyond being open to them, to want to bring them in, because it makes for a richer environment.”
“I knew about American business, but not enough about what’s really become a global economy. … You can read about it all you want, but there’s no substitute for being there and seeing the context and seeing how completely different these [other countries] are.”

“For 35 years, we’ve been studying how companies get value from information. … We try to help organizations take a more holistic view of what they are trying to do.”
“These companies are really excited to work with MIT students.They reach out to the community to set up these projects and are great to work with. They give us access to all their resources and are very open to us.”
“You could talk about watershed management and conservation of energy all you want. But until you put numbers to it and financial analysis to it, you’re not going to get much done. I came to business school to speak that language, speak with people in terms of numbers, financial numbers so that I can get projects done.”
“At MIT Sloan you have a lot of opportunities to explore entrepreneurship. Especially in a place like Kampala where you have a lot of development, entrepreneurship can be very exciting.”
“We are very much an action-learning environment. The way to learn leadership is not only through reading cases, not only through learning theory — in fact we don’t want people to regurgitate the theory. We want people to take theory and to live it, use it.”
“The assistant to the CEO was like our host mom while we were there. She arranged our housing for us, she took us out to her friend’s game farm, and we got driven around in 4x4s. She was just wonderful to meet, and we developed a personal as well as professional relationship with her.”
“Because of the diversity of our backgrounds, when we hit the ground in Tanzania it almost was a natural play where different people assume different roles.”
