Since 1959, MIT SMR has been a forum for business-management innovators from around the world to present their ideas and research.

It leads the discourse among academic researchers, business executives and other influential thought leaders about advances in management practice, particularly those shaped by technology, that are transforming how people lead and innovate. MIT SMR disseminates new management research and innovative ideas so that thoughtful executives can capitalize on the opportunities generated by rapid organizational, technological and societal change.

We also conduct the MIT SMR Big Ideas which are collaborative enquiries capturing the best thinking, reporting and scholarly research on the management implications of one significant transformation in the business environment. The Big Ideas illuminate major changes in the competitive landscape that managers are hungry to understand and that are the chief drivers of management practice innovation as enterprises respond to novel opportunities and threats.

The 58 year old legacy comes now to the GCC region to help it prepare for the future and for growth fuelled by technology and path-breaking innovations. Through our events, we will host names that have redefined boundaries within their domains and will provide a platform for the visionaries to discuss future collaborations.
