Martha E. Mangelsdorf is the editorial director of MIT Sloan Management Review. An experienced business journalist, she loves to edit, write and learn about management, innovation and entrepreneurship — something she has been doing since she worked at Inc. magazine, where she was a senior editor and senior writer, as well as a senior producer at Inc.com and executive producer of Inc. magazine on the Web. Mangelsdorf has been editing for MIT Sloan Management Review since 2005; prior to becoming editorial director, she was a senior editor for MIT SMR.
Another area of fascination for Mangelsdorf is career transition and career change. For four years, she wrote a monthly series about career change for The Boston Globe. Her book about that subject, Strategies for Successful Career Change: Finding Your Very Best Next Work Life, was published by Ten Speed Press/Random House in 2009. Strategies for Successful Career Change was named one of ten "best new books for job hunting" by More.com and one of "five books that will help your career" by CareerBuilder.com.
Mangelsdorf holds a B.A. in economics, magna cum laude, from Yale University.
