Sloan School Profiles Eric Silverman ’85 (MIT) Archives


MIT’s Sloan School of Management has profiled Eric Silverman ’85, who graduated from Sloan in 1991 and is a member of the Bowdoin Museum of Art Advisory Council. In the short video, Silverman explains why he came to MIT and passes on some sage business advice about the importance of partnering with the right people. “It may be counter-intuitive because you think I invest in real estate – I’m looking at the numbers, I’m looking at the bricks and mortar,” he says. “The truth is, the numbers and the bricks and mortar can look great but if I have the wrong partner to do that deal with, I don’t do the deal.”
