The MIT Sloan School of Management is a business school at and of MIT. Like the rest of MIT, we apply rigorous analysis to important problems and as a result, the MIT Sloan faculty is responsible for some of the breakthrough research that has advanced business practices. Examples of this include the Black-Scholes equation for valuing options, the Theory X and Theory Y explanation for how managers view employees, and System Dynamics, a framework for understanding complex situations and the dynamics these situations produce. We are committed to improving the world by advancing the practice of management.
Our curriculum is varied and flexible. We look retrospectively at management situations through cases, use analytical tools to model new possibilities, and create innovative solutions through collaborative projects, lecture and discussion, hands-on project work, and intense interaction with industry leaders. This variety of approaches to learning gives our students the widest possible range of tools for analysis, problem solving, and leadership.
We also offer more than just courses. The Sloan Innovation Period (SIP) is a unique week at the mid-point of each semester where regular coursework ceases and students participate in a wide variety of leadership and applied research seminars. An example of some of the SIP offerings for 2003-2004 include: Design and Marketing of New Products, Risk Management for Hedge Funds, and Leadership and Authority.
MIT Sloan has many top-ranked academic programs, including our MBA Program, the Sloan Fellows Program for Innovation and Global Leadership, the Leaders for Manufacturing Program, the Undergraduate Program in Management Science, and our PhD Program. In addition, we offer a series of non-degreed Executive Education programs.
