This week, we grieve the loss of two members of the MIT Sloan community, Cana Anduze (MBA ’24) and alumni Michael Ernst (SFMBA ’22). Both Cana and Mike were leaders within the MIT Sloan community who made a lasting impression on our hearts and are deeply missed. We understand that these losses are difficult to process, and as members of the community, we are here for you as another source of support. We welcome you discussing your feelings during career advising sessions or reaching out if you need us.
