MIT SDM Program [#permalink] New post 20 Dec 2009, 11:13
Hello.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the MIT SDM (Systems Design and Management) program and would like to share. Is is being promoted as a tech MBA, for mid-career proffessionals. I took a look at their website and I really like the way the programme combines curriculum on macro (i.e. generic) systems engineering and management. I am from Europe, and was also wondering how strong is the MIT alumni network here.

I have 2 years of experience in the telecom sector and 4 years in computer software industry in Sweden. I will also be finishing my company-sponsored Phd on communication systems fall 2010.

Thanks,
Tony

I have 7 yrs of experience in software and have been involved in both technical and mid-level management roles.

I am PMP certified.

My preference is to take up management roles that allow technical involvement and hence am more inclined to do programs like MSIS than an MBA. I am interested in universities like Kelley college of business, CMU etc.

Yesterday, one of my friends told me about MIT-SDM and I have been trying to get more info on this since then.

Does anyone know about the prospects, acceptance rate etc of this program.

The class size is much smaller - 55 or 65 students, I think. My impression is that fewer students apply to SDM as it is a specialized program, unlike a general MBA, and the acceptance rate may therefore balance out. I don't believe SDM releases such numbers. One important factor to consider is that SDM does not (cannot?) use Sloan career office. This definitely has an impact on recruiting, but you'd have to find out for yourself how good/bad things are for your area/industry.
