The MIT Sloan School of Management is an integral part of MIT’s rich intellectual tradition of education and research and the business school ranks amongst the world’s leading MBA programs.

The School traces its beginnings back to 1914 when it was the engineering administration curriculum in the MIT Department of Economics and Statistics. In 1925, a master’s degree in management was established and, in 1931, the world’s first university-based executive education program – the MIT Sloan Fellows – was created. The MIT School of Industrial Management was formally established in 1952. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, a 1972 Sloan alumnus, delivered the opening address at the School’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Some of MIT Sloan School’s most unique aspects include:

  • The MIT Sloan Leadership Model
  • The MIT $50K Competition
  • Global E-Lab
  • Biomedical Enterprise Program
  • Center for eBusiness at MIT
  • MIT Sloan China Project
