MIT Sloan School of Management


The mission of the MIT Sloan School of Management is to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world and to generate ideas that advance management practice.

At the intersection of business and technology, MIT Sloan is exploring the future of work, launching companies that kick-start local economies in the developing world, and retooling systems to make health care work better and to engage people around the world in addressing climate change.

Ideas Made to Matter

MIT Sloan is where smart, independent leaders come together, confident that the world should and can be better. MIT Sloan transforms confidence into ability, channeling determination and drive toward bold action and impact.

MIT Sloan offers a diverse program portfolio ranging from undergraduate degrees to programs for senior executives. From our Master of Finance and Master of Analytics programs for recent graduates, and our flagship two-year MBA to the intensive, yearlong MIT Sloan Fellows MBA Program, our degree and nondegree programs empower leaders to solve complex business problems and improve the world.

From the Classroom to the Marketplace

Among MIT Sloan’s key strengths are its exceptionally close ties with other departments at MIT, especially in fields crucial to business, including economics, engineering, and science. One example of this interdisciplinary approach is Leaders for Global Operations, a dual-degree program with the School of Engineering that is transforming manufacturing and manufacturing education, while collaborating with industry partners. Many MIT Sloan students routinely take classes in departments and schools outside of MIT Sloan to round out their knowledge and skills.

Action Learning

MIT Sloan’s signature experiential learning model immerses students in locations all over the world to translate knowledge into useful solutions. Action Learning builds resilient, thoughtful leaders capable of solving unstructured problems across business functions. Global Entrepreneurship Lab, Sustainable Business Lab, China Lab, and Digital Product Management Lab are just a few of the avenues through which students can apply classroom concepts and theory to real-world business scenarios.


The Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship provides the expertise, support, and connections MIT students need to become effective entrepreneurs. The Trust Center’s mission is to advance knowledge and educate students in innovation-driven entrepreneurship that will best serve the world in the 21st century. The center provides proven frameworks including more than 60 entrepreneurship-focused courses and co-curricular programs, as well as mentoring from its Entrepreneurs in Residence.

Global Reach

Through MIT Sloan Global Programs, the school establishes and nurtures high-level partnerships with public and private institutions around the world to advance research and develop innovative leaders. The school has collaborations with partner schools and organizations in China, Malaysia, Portugal, Italy, Australia, and Taiwan. These partnerships include International Faculty Fellows and research and educational visits. Global Programs has an office in Santiago, Chile, and also manages the Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program, which provides opportunities for teams around the world to engage with MIT in an evidence-based approach to strengthening innovative local entrepreneurial ecosystems.

The selection process at MIT is holistic and student centered; each application is evaluated within its unique context. Selection is based on outstanding academic achievement as well as a strong match between the applicant and the Institute.

Undergraduate applicants do not apply to a particular school, department, or program. Although the application asks about a preferred field of study, admitted undergraduates are not required to choose a major until their sophomore year. Admissions information for regular and transfer applicants is provided in the Undergraduate section, as well as on the undergraduate admissions website.

Applicants for graduate study apply directly to their particular department or program of interest. See the individual department and program descriptions for specific requirements.
