Dear Friends:
Here in Cambridge, we are coming off a great year, a year inwhich we decided to make fundamental, innovative changesin three of our core graduate programs. As the new academic year begins, we are in the midst of implementing thoseexciting changes — while we plan the next revolution ineducation at MIT Sloan.
(Stay tuned!!)
 As an integral part of MIT, we have always been home toan innovative spirit and revolutionary ideas. We prideourselves on affecting dramatic change in the practice of management. We at MIT Sloan don’t just adapt to survive; webreak new ground. We look to the future and aim to set thestandard to which others aspire. The results of MIT Sloanresearch are well known throughout the business world, but itis in the classroom where the kernels of great ideas begin andwhere great leaders are developed.This summer saw the debut of a revamped MBAcurriculum and the announcement of the MIT Sloan FellowsProgram in Innovation and Global Leadership. Both aretypically groundbreaking, and we expect both to set newstandards for the development of management leaders.The modified MBA curriculum is the fruit of a multi-year examination process of how MIT Sloan teaches its students. Itfeatures a revised core curriculum as well as the First-Year Challenge and the Sloan Innovative Period, two particularlyinnovative additions that will help create a distinctive identityfor the program and serve as platforms supporting another generation of educational innovation.In addition to a new curriculum, we welcome PaulOsterman as the new deputy dean in charge of the MBAprogram and faculty personnel. Paul is attempting to fill thelarge shoes of Gabriel Bitran, who has rejoined the faculty after five years of exceptional service. Paul, who is also the NanyangTechnological University Professor of Management, is workinghard to make the new curriculum live up to its great potential.
(For more on Paul, please see the profile on page 7.)
The new MIT Sloan Fellows Program in Innovation andGlobal Leadership is a strategic integration of MIT Sloan’s twodegree-granting executive education landmarks — the SloanFellows and Management of Technology programs. The newprogram, which will begin this coming June, is designed toprovide outstanding executives with the critical knowledgeand strategic skills to create and lead successful, innovativeorganizations. We are confident that, like its predecessors, thisprogram will set a new standard in executive education. We are very proud of these new initiatives and look forwardto the impact they will have on future MIT Sloan graduates, aswell as the business world. We will keep you posted.In other good news, Sean Brown, SM ’94, joins us as thenew director of Alumni Relations. An active alum whocurrently serves as a director of the MIT Sloan Club of Boston,Sean brings more than 12 years of entrepreneurial leadershipexperience to his new position. Welcome, Sean!

 As is appropriate for an
that examines therevolutionary nature of MIT Sloan, this issue acknowledgesthe extraordinary (even by MIT standards!) accomplishmentsof Institute Professor John D.C. Little. One of our mostimportant innovators, John has developed models andmethods that have enhanced countless businesses andbenefited many millions of consumers.In this, our annual philanthropy report issue, we alsothank our dedicated alumni and friends for their manycontributions to MIT Sloan – contributions both financial andpersonal. Because tuition covers only about half the School'scosts, your continued support is vital to achieving our mission— “to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve theworld and to generate ideas that advance management practice.”In a time where business education is under fire — withEnron-like scandals and other lapses in corporate ethicsmaking regular news — MIT Sloan stands proudly behind our teaching programs and our alumni. Our alumnus John Reed’srecent appointment as interim head of the NYSE is anenormous source of pride. As we continue the work inprogress that is MIT Sloan, it is good to know that we are notonly better serving our students; we are better preparing our students to serve the world.Sincerely,
Richard Schmalensee
 John C Head III Dean
