MIT Sloan Affinity Clubs
MIT Sloan offers a wide range of student clubs catering to various interests and affinity groups. These clubs aim to foster a supportive community while tackling important business subjects relevant to global regions, women, and underrepresented populations. By leveraging the vibrant atmosphere of Cambridge and Boston, combined with the engaging activities organized by the broader MIT community, students benefit from a diverse and enriching educational experience. Below, we provide a brief overview of some of our diverse clubs.
