He was a founding faculty member of MIT's Sloan School of Management and served as president of Antioch College.Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld is a Senior Research Scientist in MIT's Sloan School of Management and Engineering Systems Division, where his scholarship centers on underlying values and assumptions about people at work, in organizations, in complex systems, and across societies-building on and extending the core of McGregor's contribution.
