Facilities and Accommodations
We recommend that programs be delivered at MIT, either on campus or at MIT Endicott House, our executive conference facility. Participants live and work together in an environment designed to foster challenging discussion and extensive interaction and take them away from the daily obligations and distractions of their positions. Coming to MIT allows participants to absorb MIT's unique culture of innovation and offers them wide access to the resources of the world's leading research institution.
MIT Sloan is located on the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge, MA. Two of our main buildings are part of corporate legend. MIT Sloan's original hub housed the U.S. headquarters of Unilever Corporation before Alfred P. Sloan purchased it for MIT in 1950. Next door, National Research Corporation made beverage history during World War II. The company's attempts to freeze-dry blood using low-temperature physics yielded an unexpected result: freeze-dried orange juice and the now-famous brand, Minute Maid
Each building on the MIT Sloan campus is consistently upgraded to respect its origins while providing the resources the community needs to continue shaping corporate history. The new MIT Sloan management center, which opened its doors in 2010, is not only an instant architectural landmark, but also a feat of modern engineering. The high-performance building features sustainable elements such as intelligent handling of daylight, photo voltaic panels, and "green" roofs designed to reduce peak rainwater runoff to the storm drain system. The 209,000 square-foot structure will include multiple conference rooms, study areas, atriums, social spaces, outdoor spaces, and dedicated executive education facilities. The interior space design, based on research by MIT Sloan Professor Thomas Allen, accommodates and encourages open communication among faculty, students, and visitors.
The MIT Endicott House Executive Conference Center
The Endicott House is a 1934 mansion surrounded by 25 acres of magnificent gardens and grounds, located in Dedham, MA. With a history enriched in old-world grandeur and enhanced by contemporary refinements, Endicott House offers a unique site for learning, reflection, and conversation. The historic mansion is complemented by the contemporary architecture of the newer conference facility, Brooks Center, which houses an amphitheater-style lecture hall and two seminar rooms.
