“The faculty behind the Finance Track is committed to meet the practical needs of MIT Sloan students in finance.”
The MIT Sloan MBA program has announced the launch of the Healthcare Certificate. The national and global healthcare and health management related challenges provide unique opportunities for MIT Sloan students and faculty to make an important impact on the world through innovative research and educational activities.
MIT Sloan students and faculty who are passionate about healthcare and health management create a vibrant community. Opportunities are growing for MIT Sloan students in various career paths within the healthcare ecosystem and related industries. The Healthcare Certificate's curriculum and requirements prepare students for career paths such as the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries, healthcare consulting, management positions within healthcare delivery systems, healthcare innovation and entrepreneurship, and global healthcare delivery.
The Healthcare Certificate will:
1) Provide students with a structured and hands-on educational experience that is sufficiently flexible to promote their needs and desires with respect to the range of related career paths;
2) Create a network of students, faculty and industry partners that will facilitate action-based educational, research and knowledge creation activities, as well as professional employment and hiring opportunities;
3) Leverage the unique MIT culture of integration between management, engineering and the sciences.
Healthcare and health management are one of the strategic initiatives at MIT Sloan. There are currently more than 20 faculty at MIT Sloan who have a strong interest in healthcare and health related research as well as faculty across the MIT campus.

“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.”
"After we gave our recommendations, the great part was that the very next day the CEO was in the boardroom implementing them with his top vice presidents."
“I can honestly say that when I was planning on coming to business school I never thought that witnessing the birth of a child would be included in the education. It was definitely an experience.”
“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.”
“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.”

“I love being in a place that is such a nexus of people and ideas — people coming to learn something new and to define themselves. Being a part of that process is a real honor and a real gift.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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 find the students to be very interested, engaged, and valuable in terms of what they bring to the classroom. Because of their diversity and their own work experiences, they bring a unique perspective to the class work.”
