Many parents believe that an education at very selective schools like the legendary MIT (where superheroes Ironman and Spiderman went to college) is the key to economic success. Parents and kids go to extraordinary lengths to gain admission into these ivory towers! But the seemingly-obvious return to elite education is really an illusion: an elite illusion.

Reservations are required for events hosted at the Intesa Sanpaolo Skyscraper Auditorium.
