Sloan School of Management – MIT

History

The Sloan School of Management grew out of a single course, “Engineering Administration,” established by MIT’s Department of Economics and Statistics in 1914. The program began offering master’s degrees in management in 1925 and became the separate Department of Business and Engineering Administration in 1930. In 1950, Alfred P. Sloan, the Chairman of General Motors, donated $5 million to MIT through the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to establish a School of Industrial Management. The school was renamed in his honor in 1962. Today, Sloan offers full-time and executive MBA programs, including the global Sloan Fellows program.
