Sloan Fellows


Sloan Fellows

The Sloan Fellows program is a mid-career Masters' degree in General Management supported by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. It is targeted at experienced managers who have already demonstrated a significant degree of career success (either within organisations or as entrepreneurs). Alfred P. Sloan was the Chairman of General Motors from 1937 to 1956, and envisioned the Sloan Fellowship as a means of developing the 'Ideal Manager'.

The program was started at the MIT Sloan School of Management in 1940, which still has the largest Sloan Fellows program. In the following decades, the program was expanded to include [http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/sloan/ Sloan Master's] at Stanford Graduate School of Business and [http://www.london.edu/sloanfellowship.html Sloan Fellowship] at London Business School.

The three programmes comprise a mix of company- and self-sponsored candidates. In all three programmes, a significant degree of experience is required for admission. This is in keeping with Alfred P. Sloan's conviction that experienced managers would benefit best from the programme. Alumni of all three programmes describe it as 'transformational', in keeping with the original vision of preparing successful managers for senior business leadership.

Unlike Executive MBA programs which are part-time over 18-36 months, the Sloan Fellows program is a full-time year of intensive study. MIT offers both a twelve-months full-time as well as a 2 years "flex" version for Massachusetts residents. Stanford's ten-month full-time program concludes with an International Study Trip [http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/sloan/] . At London, the degree lasts for 11 months, it includes international field trip and ends with a major research project in summer [http://www.london.edu/sloanfellowship/Programme%20details.html] .

Sloan Fellows at MIT may opt for an M.B.A. degree, an SM in management, or an SM in the management of technology depending on their curricular and research choices. Sloan Fellows at Stanford are awarded a Master of Science in Management degree. Sloan Fellows at London Business School are awarded a Sloan Fellowship MSc.

Sloan Fellow alumni include, among others, Kofi Annan (MIT SF '72) and Carly Fiorina (MIT SF '89).
