MIT CTL EXECUTIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM GATEWAY SITE
This gateway site provides presentation and reference materials for participants in the June 7-10, 2016 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 at http://cb.hbsp.harvard.edu/cbmp/access/49717088 (Please remember your username/password.)
HBSP recommends checking your browser compatibility for online materials at http://forio.com/hbp-support/. This page is designed to check whether your current browser settings and plugins meet minimum requirements to run the listed simulations and cases.
Course location: The classes are not fixed to one location; please refer to the agenda for locations. We will begin in room E62-276 located on the second floor of The Porter Center for Management Education (Sloan School of Management building). The physical address of E62 is 100 Main Street; it can be located by entering any building number (i.e., E62) using MIT's interactive campus map at http://whereis.mit.edu/.

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.
There are many fine restaurants in Cambridge and Boston. Here are a few 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.
Firebrand Saints - it's been described as a trendy eatery and is a short walk from MIT.
Liberty Hotel - What was once the iconic Charles Street Jail is now the stunning, vibrant Liberty Boston Hotel. Just across the river (Inbound on the Red Line), one subway stop, located at 215 Charles St.
