 Program Overview   study in america

Like Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) itself, the MIT Sloan School of Management (MIT Sloan) draws its power from a paradox: it is a place for visionary pragmatists, for hands-on thinkers, and for people who dream of changing the world and have the plan and the passion to make it happen. True to MIT's motto of mens et manus ("mind and hand"), MIT Sloan is the world leader in combining theory and practical application to both enhance careers and improve the world.

MIT Sloan's reputation for strong academics combined with faculty who are dynamic thinkers and world leaders in their respective fields gives students a powerful and transformational academic experience. Utilizing a unique combination of case studies, collaborative team projects, lecture and live case discussion, intense interaction with industry leaders, and hands-on labs classes, MIT Sloan professors work to instill world-class business skills, and create leaders with real-world experience.

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) from MIT Sloan is a step toward making a difference in the world, no matter what the professional focus.

MBA Program- Curriculum

MIT Sloan's MBA curriculum grew out of the conviction that, in education as in business, leadership belongs to those who reject the comfort of the status quo. Therefore, the MIT curriculum is one that is formulated on concept-based action learning and encourages freedom of choice and experimentation. After the powerful, shared experience of the first-semester core, students are free to construct a highly personalized course of study. In addition to the analytic rigor expected from MIT, the school offers a sharp focus on the demands of actual business problems, and an array of new opportunities to practice skills of leadership and to connect with the world of business practice.

While MIT offers a wide variety of courses, each one exemplifies the school's commitment to balancing innovative ideas and theories with real-world application.

First-Semester Core

Through first-semester core, students build the foundation of their MIT Sloan education. Working with a highly diverse team of five or six classmates, they gain fundamental skills through required course work in economics, accounting, managerial communication, business statistics, and organizational processes (as well as an elective in either strategic marketing or finance). And they absorb indelible lessons about teamwork.

Only one semester long, the core allows students great freedom and flexibility in pursuing their unique goals and interests throughout the rest of their time at MIT Sloan. And students enjoy the company and intellectual stimulation of their cohort - a group of roughly 60 students (made up of 10-12 teams) who take their courses together.

The First-Semester Core Requirements

Required for all MBA candidates, the MBA core curriculum consists of the following courses:

• Economic Analysis for Business Decisions
• Data, Models, and Decisions
• Financial Accounting
• Leadership and Personal Effectiveness Coaching (closely linked with the 15.280 Communications for Managers Course)
• Communication for Managers
• Organizational Processes
• Organizational Processes -Team Project
• An elective chosen by the student, either Finance Theory I or Marketing Management

Curriculum Innovations

Entrepreneurship & Innovation Track (E&I)

The new E&I track focuses on launching and developing emerging technology companies. E&I students immerse themselves in a rigorous curriculum led by distinguished faculty and thought leaders in the field. The program - consisting of four required courses and six additional electives - is highlighted by weekly dinners and access to key faculty and leaders in entrepreneurship and venture capital. E&I students receive a Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation in addition to the MBA degree.

Finance Track

The MBA Track in Finance consists of a set of required courses, focused electives, and extracurricular activities that will prepare MBA students for a career in finance. Enrollment for the Track in Finance is open to all first-year MBA students. Upon successful completion, students will receive a Track in Finance Certificate, issued by the school, in addition to their MBA degree. Finance Track students can select one of the following six specializations: Asset Management, Corporate Finance, Financial Engineering, Financial Technology, Risk Management and Sales and Trading.

Global Entrepreneurship (G-Lab)

G-Lab is a landmark program that links teams of MIT Sloan MBA students with entrepreneurs in emerging nations. The students share their knowledge, experience and research with these business owners, helping them to design market strategies, rethink practices and priorities, and devise solutions to specific challenges. Meanwhile, the students get intensive training in challenging global environments where they put to use the skills they have developed in business and global networking.

Sloan Innovation Period (SIP)

SIP provides a marked contrast to traditional classroom activities - enabling students to hear directly from faculty about cutting-edge research and to participate in intensive leadership seminars. SIP also provides a forum for students to develop general business knowledge, and they are exposed to a wide variety of speakers, presentations and events.

Sustainability Lab (S-Lab)

Utilizing a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to sustainability challenges, S-Lab is jointly taught by seven of the school's top faculty and features opportunities to work with a variety of companies as they confront environmental and social business challenges.

 Highlights   study in america

  • E&I is a new program that provides students with thorough exposure to the many building blocks of entrepreneurial life.
