The MIT Executive MBA: A Location Renowned for Innovation

Jean-Marie Daout, Vice President of Boeing Development at Zodiac Airspace, discusses his motivation to experience the innovation centers of Cambridge and Boston. “I was familiar with the innovation economy in Seattle and I wanted to see how it might be different on the east coast,” Daout says. He explains that the five-hour cross-country commute to MIT every third week has actually been beneficial to his productivity, providing uninterrupted time to think and learn.

The MIT Sloan School of Management is located in Cambridge’s renowned Kendall Square, a thriving tech, biotech and research area, that attracts world-class innovation companies (Google, Microsoft, Novartis, Sanofi/Genzyme, HubSpot). Participants in the MIT Executive MBA program have an opportunity to engage with these leading edge companies through hands-on projects reflective of the program’s emphasis on action learning.
