Sloan School of Management

Undergraduate Study

Bachelor of Science in Management Science/Course 15
[see degree chart]

The MIT Sloan School of Management offers an undergraduate degree program in management science. This innovative curriculum is designed to prepare students for top jobs in today's technologically oriented business world. By combining the General Institute Requirements with subjects in the MIT Sloan School of Management, students learn a unique combination of problem solving and managerial skills, which allow them to excel in high-demand areas such as financial engineering, market analysis, and big data analytics.

In recent years, the field of management science has grown rapidly in conjunction with advances in technology, methods for collecting and structuring large quantities of data, and the building of sophisticated mathematical models. The MIT Sloan School's undergraduate degree program develops knowledge in probability, statistics, and computer programming, and a strong background in economics, accounting, communication, and managerial psychology. Students learn to apply this knowledge within a variety of managerial functions. Each student completes a concentration in one of four areas: finance, information technologies, marketing science, or business analytics and operations research.

MIT Sloan undergraduates take many management-related electives, alongside MBA and other graduate students. This arrangement provides an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to learn from students with previous business experience. The SB degree in management science exposes students to the complementary learnings of technological and management innovation.

Minor in Management

The Minor in Management provides undergraduates in other majors with an understanding of the business, human, social, and organizational dimensions of scientific and technological enterprise.

The minor consists of six subjects, three required:

15.301 Managerial Psychology Laboratory
  or
15.668 People and Organizations

  Plus the following two subjects:
15.501 Corporate Financial Accounting
15.812 Marketing Management

Plus, any three Course 15 subjects (other than UROP, Special Studies, Special Seminars, and general-elective transfer credit) that are not designated as restricted to students in other Sloan School programs. (Two six-unit subjects will be counted as a single elective subject.) Subject 14.01 is also a permissible elective.

Minor in Management Science

The Minor in Management Science introduces undergraduates in other majors to the techniques of quantitative business analysis and their application to practical problems. Its focus reflects the core content of the SB degree program in management science.

The minor consists of six subjects, four required:

6.041 Probabilistic Systems Analysis
14.01 Principles of Microeconomics
15.053 Optimization Methods in Management Science
15.075J Statistical Thinking and Data Analysis

Graduate Study

The MIT Sloan School of Management offers opportunity for graduate study leading to the degrees of Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Management, Master of Science in Management of Technology, Master of Finance, Master of Science in Management Studies, and Doctor of Philosophy. In addition, there are two dual degree options: an MBA/SM with the MIT School of Engineering, known as the Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) program; and an MBA/MPP or MPA with the Harvard Kennedy School.

Entrance Requirements for Graduate Study

Applications are welcome from college graduates in all areas of concentration—the humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and engineering. Please see the individual program websites for specific entrance requirements and more information.

Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Management

The MIT Sloan School MBA program offers a course of study in graduate management education, leading to a master's degree in Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Science in Management (SM). Degree candidates are admitted in spring to a program that begins with a mandatory orientation program in August. The two-year program of study requires candidates to complete a core curriculum plus 144 units of H- or G-level elective subjects. Students also fulfill research and leadership requirements through activities in the mid-term Sloan Innovation Period and through elective coursework. Residency for four academic terms is required. A grade point average (GPA) of 4.0/5.0 (B) is required at the time of graduation.

The MBA curriculum is designed for maximum flexibility, allowing students to create an individual program best suited to their needs and career interests. During the first term, students take a sequence of core subjects with the option of one of four elective subjects.

In the first term, MBA students are assigned to one of 60 teams consisting of six to seven people. These teams are combined into six larger sections, called cohorts or oceans, for the fall core subjects. Students take all the core subjects in the same assigned section, which facilitates cohort integration and the formation of study groups.

After the first term, students have a wide range of elective subject choices. Students are given a great deal of independence in choosing their subjects, and they may design a program that includes a depth of focus as well as breadth. This includes the option of earning a certificate by enrolling in and completing the elective requirements for a track or certificate program. The MBA Program currently offers five certificates: in finance, enterprise management, entrepreneurship and innovation, healthcare, and sustainability.

The Sloan Innovation Period, offered each term, provides students and faculty with the opportunity to explore jointly, in a nontraditional setting, what makes MIT Sloan unique: exceptional research expertise, leadership acumen, and the hands-on application of knowledge.

Practical exposure to management takes place in the MIT Sloan School through a variety of activities. Students in the MBA program are expected to spend the summer between their first and second years working in an activity or internship that contributes to their understanding of and effectiveness in dealing with management problems.

During the academic year students have additional opportunities both in and outside the classroom to apply their learning. Many Sloan subjects incorporate action learning into their pedagogy and require students to complete projects within companies and organizations as a deliverable for the subject. These subjects may include a 1-3 week international or domestic experience working within a host organization. Corporate leaders are often invited to work with students either through guest lectureships in classes or through interaction with one of the more than 60 student organizations. Some students may also have the opportunity to work as paid teaching and research assistants to the Sloan faculty.

Outside of the classroom, the MBA community's student organizations and clubs provide students the opportunity to practice leadership through the execution of conferences, international study tours and treks, business plan and case competitions, and other club-related activities. Visit us at http://mitsloan.mit.edu/mba/.

Master of Finance

The Master of Finance (MFin) prepares students for a broad range of careers in finance requiring analytical rigor and the ability to innovate around market challenges. The 12-month (July–June) program consists of required fundamental and advanced subjects, restricted and general electives, action learning, ethics modules, and an optional master's thesis. Practical training is an important component of a student's preparation. MFin students are expected when possible to take advantage of the January Independent Activities Period (IAP) as an opportunity to gain practical experience in an area of finance. International students must check with the International Students Office to ensure compliance with immigration regulations before participating in practical training.

Required summer-term coursework provides the foundation in finance, accounting, and financial mathematics for continuing with more advanced required and elective subjects in the fall and spring terms. Restricted and general electives ensure appropriate depth as well as opportunities for breadth of study, depending on the student's interest. Students are required to take either a proseminar or the Finance Research Practicum™; project-based classes in which students work in teams to address current problems identified by finance professionals. A thesis option is available in lieu of one or more general elective subjects for students who wish to research a topic of particular interest.

Frequent seminars, conferences, and major lectures present students with opportunities to hear from recognized leaders from a variety of industries. MFin students have full access to the extensive resources of the MIT Sloan Career Development Office as well as the MIT Career Development Center. In addition, students participate in a wide array of professional clubs, student government, sports teams, and organizations at the school and campus level.

To graduate, students must attain at least a B (GPA of 4.0/5.0) at the time of graduation. Residency for three consecutive academic terms (summer, fall, spring) is required. Students may not pursue another degree program while enrolled in the MFin. Except in the case of core requirements, coursework completed at MIT prior to matriculation in the MFin program may not be applied toward the MFin degree without the approval of the MFin faculty director.

In addition to the traditional synergies among finance, economics, and accounting, the program exploits intellectual ties between finance and mathematics, statistics, psychology, management, computer science, and engineering. The program is primarily targeted at recent graduates with zero to two years of experience. Recent graduates of postgraduate programs in mathematics, science, and engineering who wish to enter the finance profession are also encouraged to apply.

Typically, applications to the MFin program are due in early January; decisions are usually announced by mid-March. This is subject to change. For exact deadlines, please refer to https://mitsloan.mit.edu/mfin.

Master of Science in Management Studies

The Master of Science in Management Studies (MSMS) program is a customizable advanced master's degree that complements an overseas management education. Designed for students in non-US business schools who are in the process of completing or have already completed their MBA (or comparable master's) degree, the MSMS program allows students to pursue their area of interest in management and construct an individualized curriculum of all-elective subjects from the offerings at MIT Sloan, other MIT departments, and Harvard University. Students specialize in a specific area within management by designating a concentration, taking elective subjects, and working with a Sloan faculty member to write a compulsory master's thesis in their area of study. Applicants from our international partner and cooperating schools are especially encouraged to apply.

The 9-month program, which runs from September to June, requires full-time residence. In addition, MSMS students are required to meet MIT's requirement of at least 66 units of G- or H-level subjects, of which at least 42 units must be H-level, and a master's thesis. To graduate, students must attain a GPA of 4.0/5.0 (B) by the time of graduation. For more information, visit http://mitsloan.mit.edu/msms/.

System Design and Management Program: Master of Science in Engineering and Management

Jointly sponsored by the School of Engineering and the MIT Sloan School, the System Design and Management (SDM) program targets experienced engineers and product development professionals who seek to build upon their technical background and advance to positions of leadership in their careers.

The SDM program was created in 1996, in response to a critical need expressed by government and industry to provide future engineering leaders with an educational experience that combines an engineering systems perspective with the essentials of a management education. The program has focused on developing competencies in the areas of systems thinking, management skills, leadership, and an end-to-end understanding of systems development.

SDM is offered in three formats, including a 13-month full-time on-campus program and two career-compatible 24-month programs—half-time on campus for local-area commuter students and a distance delivery option via synchronous video conferencing. SDM is the only MIT degree program that can be completed primarily through distance education.

Program applicants have significant engineering and/or managerial experience, in addition to a scientific or engineering education. On average, SDM student-fellows have about 10 years of work experience. The program participants come from both private and government institutions, either as company sponsored, or as self-sponsored students. A majority of SDM students have advanced degrees in other fields, and over half come from countries other than the United States.

The SDM program begins in August. Applications are accepted on a continuous basis, with an early notification deadline of January 31, 2015, and a final cutoff of May 23 for admission to the next cohort. For additional information, contact the SDM Program Office, Room E40-315, 617-253-1055, sdm@mit.edu, or visit http://sdm.mit.edu/. See also Engineering Systems Division in Part 2.

Leaders for Global Operations Program: Dual Master's Degrees in Management and Engineering

The 24-month Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) program combines graduate education in engineering and management for those with two or more years of full-time work experience who aspire to leadership positions in manufacturing or operations companies. A required six-month internship comprising a research project at one of LGO's partner companies leads to a dual-degree thesis, culminating in two master's degrees—an MBA (or SM in management) and an SM in engineering. The program is offered jointly through the MIT Sloan School of Management and the School of Engineering master's programs in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Biological Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Engineering Systems, and Mechanical Engineering. For more information, general requirements, and application procedures, visit the LGO website at http://lgo.mit.edu/.

Doctor of Philosophy

The purpose of the MIT Sloan School's PhD program is to prepare students for careers in teaching and research. Students are admitted once a year for September matriculation and take an average of five years to complete the program.

The PhD program provides an opportunity to combine in-depth work in theory with work in broadly defined "applied" areas, with faculty who are experts in their fields. Candidates must master the literature, theory, and application of a major field of concentration as well as a minor field. Successful completion of this requirement is determined by General Examinations. The major fields in the MIT Sloan School are:

Accounting
Economic Sociology
Finance
Information Technologies
Marketing
Operations Management
Organization Studies
System Dynamics
Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management
Work and Employment Research

PhD candidates enter the program specializing in an appropriate minor field—typically a theoretical discipline that provides a foundation for research in the major field. Major fields such as accounting or marketing usually have economics as a minor field, while organization studies has behavioral science.

The subject requirements for the major and minor fields are not rigid. There are normal groups of subjects for the standard fields, but substitutions of other subjects and independent study are possible. Regardless of the major and minor fields chosen, a plan of study designed to prepare the student for General Examinations is determined by the student and his or her faculty advisor(s).

The General Examinations are usually taken at the end of the second year or beginning of the third year of study, after completion of major and minor field coursework and a research paper (see below). The exact form of general exams varies and may involve written examinations, critiques of research papers, or review papers on prescribed topics. In all cases, the last stage is an oral examination.

The MIT Sloan School is committed to research, and the philosophy and structure of the PhD program reflect this professional commitment. There are two separate research requirements: the master's thesis and the PhD dissertation.

A substantial part of the student's work in the latter half of the first year and in the second year is devoted to an independent research project. The topic, design, and execution of the project are left to the student, while advice and criticism are provided by a research advisor and other interested faculty. Upon completion of the project, the student submits a master's thesis and, after fulfilling the Institute requirements for a master's degree, is awarded an SM in Management Research.

The PhD dissertation consists of significant scholarly research in some area of management. Close working relationships with faculty are established early so that the thesis can be defined as a manageable project as early as possible. Candidates typically require two or three years of full-time work to complete their doctoral theses.

A typical funding package covers a period of five years. Students receive full academic year tuition, health insurance, and a fellowship with a teaching assistant or research assistant component.

Executive MBA

The MIT Executive MBA is a rigorous 20-month, executive schedule Master of Business Administration that builds on MIT Sloan’s history of distinguished MBA programs and mid-career education. The classroom-based program is designed to develop principled, innovative leaders, usually with a decade or more of work experience, who can transform the world's most important institutions. The MIT Executive MBA is an opportunity to join an elite forum for innovation and leadership in which mid-career executives develop an edge in their general management skills and build a business network that lasts a lifetime.

The program brings together rising executives from diverse industries to collaborate on the complex challenges they face now—and will face in years to come—within their organizations and within the larger international marketplace. Although a large proportion of MIT EMBAs come from careers in life science, engineering, and technology, our ranks also include leaders in government, start-ups, nonprofits, finance, and the military. All are inspired by this rare opportunity to drive positive change, master the science of management, and integrate global leadership and data-driven analytics.
