Business School Overview
The Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers graduate programs in these departments and concentrations: accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, health care administration, human resources management, industrial management, international business, leadership, manufacturing and technology management, marketing, management information systems, production/operations management, organizational behavior, supply chain management/logistics, quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research, and technology. Its tuition is full-time: $57,920 per year. At graduation, 84.5 percent of graduates of the full-time program are employed.
Though graduate students at the Sloan School of Management study at the campus facilities in Cambridge, Mass., their business education has a broader slant. The academic courses are inherently global in nature, and there are dozens of opportunities for students to travel and study abroad. The school also has Action Labs for students to tackle real problems in existing companies in the United States, China, and India.
Even graduate student organizations at MIT have a global focus, with business clubs for nations around the world. There are also sports clubs for everything from surfing to salsa dancing, and student athletes can join M.B.A. intramural teams to compete with other M.B.A. students throughout the Northeast. Students can also compete in yearlong contests in the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition, with cash prizes and business start-up services for winning business plans. Students, faculty, and staff meet weekly for Consumption Functions, better known as “C-Functions,” which often celebrate international cultures with food, music, and dancing.
The business school campus is near a stop on the “T” subway system, and downtown Boston is about a 20-minute walk away. Students may live in university housing, though space is limited. Close to a quarter of Sloan graduates have gone on to become company presidents and CEOs, and some of the most notable alumni include Carly Fiorina, former president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co.; John Reed, former chairman of Citicorp; and Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of Israel.
