Look closely and you'll find MIT Sloan is more than one of the world's top business schools. It's a diverse and vibrant community where every person is valued and supported. It's a meritocracy, where ideas supercede status and innovation is organic. It's a rich melding of cultures, perspectives, and ideas. It's a global experience and education, in which students can participate in a classroom discussion on India one month and meet with Indian government and business leaders the next month. It's a place of action and pragmatism, where faculty strive to solve the world's problems. It's a place where industry leaders, like Jack Welch and Carly Fiorina, come to connect with the brightest minds of the next generation. It's a place where the classroom is but one part of the experience -- where students run conferences, found clubs, travel the world, challenge themselves and each other, and build personal and professional relationships for life. Look closely. You'll see what MIT Sloan is really like. Learn more at http://mitsloan.mit.edu.
