When Was the Program Introduced?
The MIT Sloan CFO Summit, started in 2002, is the nation’s premier CFO event bringing together financial executives from around the world and leading faculty from MIT. The annual event offers a day of interactive learning and thought-provoking discourse on the future of finance, accounting, and business that is not available anywhere else. It includes presentations, panels, keynotes speakers, networking and a closing reception.
What Differentiates the MIT Sloan CFO Summit?
Each year, the volunteers who plan the Summit have three goals in mind. One, to attract best-in-class speakers who represent a broad mix of industries, geographies and business stages. Two, to attract a best-in-class audience of CFOs and other financial executives from small and large companies, private and public. Three, to help all participants maximize practical education and peer networking in a convenient, one-day format.
Who Designs the Program?
The MIT Sloan CFO Summit is designed by volunteers using knowledge from professional experience and the expertise of the academicians at MIT Sloan School of Management. Conference organizers have access to vital information and a network of expert business leaders to draw from, which allows them to foster thought-provoking discussions and facilitate peer networking for their fellow executives. The Summit is part of the CXO Series produced by the MIT Sloan Boston Alumni Association along with MIT Sloan.
Jeremy Seidman (MBA ’03) is Chair of the MIT Sloan CFO Summit.
