MIT CTL EXECUTIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM GATEWAY SITE
This gateway site provides presentation and reference materials for participants in the January 17-20, 2017 Executive Education Course. The materials are organized by day, with a section at the bottom for supplemental reading/reference materials. There may be some presentations containing proprietary/sensitive information or data; these will not be posted. Additionally, the case study assignments will be posted, but due to copyright regulations, we cannot post the cases. Those must be downloaded from the HBSP website. The link will be sent prior to the course.
Course location: The program will start in room E51-335 located on the third floor of the Tang Center Building (E51 can be found on MIT's interactive Campus Map). Most of the sessions will be conducted in this classroom, with the afternoon sessions on Tuesday in an adjacent building.
The physical address of E51 is 70 Memorial Drive but the entrance is at the rear of the building, on the corner of Amherst and Wadsworth Streets.
PLEASE NOTE: The MIT campus in the Kendall Square area is undergoing a major renovation. To walk from the Marriott or the Kendall Hotel, we suggest you walk down Main Street (take a left as you exit the Marriott or a right as you exit the Kendall). Walk to Hayward Street (Au Bon Pain is on the corner) and turn right. Walk the length of Hayward and cross Amherst Street; take another left and the Tang Center is the gray building on the right. Enter at the revolving door on the corner.

Additional Materials and Miscellaneous Information
MBTA public transit map - MIT is the Kendall stop on the Red Line. You may want to explore Cambridge and Boston while here. One-way fare for a bus is $2.10 and $2.65 for the subway. There are ticket kiosks located at all subway stations (the kiosks themselves can be quite an adventure). If you will only be using the subway for one round trip, select "other" for the amount and put in $5.30.
Local restaurants: There are many fine restaurants in Cambridge and Boston. Here are a few local restaurants that you may want to consider (we're not advocating for these, just letting you know about them):
Champions Restaurant - A sports-themed restaurant adjacent to the Cambridge Marriott.
Legal Seafood - Excellent seafood, 5 Cambridge Center, at the corner of Main and Ames Streets.
EVOO - organic eclectic food, 350 Third St.
