Edward Pennell Brooks
Prior to his tenure, the Sloan School was known as the MIT Department of Business and Engineering Administration. A 1950 gift from MIT alumnus and GM Chairman Alfred P. Sloan turned the department into the School of Industrial Management, which opened its doors in 1952 with Brooks as its first dean. In 1964 the School was renamed the Alfred P. Sloan School of Management in its founder's honor.
