Giving to MIT Economics
MIT Economics provides an environment where intellectual breakthroughs in research go hand in hand with an educational program that nurtures the skills, commitment, and vision of its superb faculty and students. Until recently, MIT competed with a small set of other universities for top faculty members and students. Today, however, the competition has become broader and more intense. Maintaining MIT Economics’ high standard of achievement is therefore more challenging. More than anything else, preserving the department’s excellence requires a significant increase in its resource base.
