Let's start with the end result. After an intense year immersed in personal and professional growth, you will leave campus with not just your MBA or Master of Science degree, but with critical assets for your future: a personal network that spans industries and oceans, enhanced skills and capabilities, and the confidence to lead and make a difference on a global scale.

The one-year MIT Sloan Fellows MBA program attracts high-potential, mid-career leaders enthusiastic to discover new possibilities for innovation—and action. Think of the MIT Sloan Fellows program as your change-the-world toolkit. For the past 85 years, some of the most visionary leaders worldwide have done just that.

Degree Options

In the MIT Sloan Fellows program, you have the choice to earn an MBA, a Master of Science in Management, or a Master of Science in Management of Technology. The degree you decide to pursue will determine whether you must complete a thesis.


If you decide to pursue an MS in Management or an MS in Management of Technology, you are required to complete a thesis—individually or with a co-author. If you pursue an MBA, you are not required to develop a thesis, but you are welcome to do so. Alumni who have opted to write a thesis emphasize the significant impact that their research had in transitioning them to new roles within their organizations.

"One thing that we do well at MIT Sloan is to take expert opinion and put it in terms that non-experts can not only understand, but relate to." —Simon H. Johnson, Professor, Global Economics, and Management; MIT Sloan Fellows MBA Program Faculty Director
