About MIT Sloan

MIT Sloan, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts essentially “across the hall” from HBS, is different from other ivy league schools in its hyper-focus on building leaders that are fully equipped to bring what they learned into practice. It offers seven certificates so you can focus your studies and specialize. Whether you’re passionate about entrepreneurship, enterprise management, business analytics or other disciplines, MIT Sloan has a curated program for you.

Unique hands-on experiences such as the 100K competition, the Silicon Valley tour or a guided independent study engaging with the start-up ecosystem will grant you critical experiential learning to bridge the gap between academic concepts and their implementation in the real world.

Taking classes across campus with students and faculty from non-business disciplines is one of the most exciting opportunities at MIT Sloan.

The MIT Sloan cohort size is smaller and allows tighter connections with like-minded students. The urban campus features an eclectic mix of architectures ranging from the classic majestic Dome building to the funky, abstract Stata building.
