Curriculum – Notable Features

Entrepreneurship & Innovation Track
Quote:
The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Track (E&I) is an offering within the MIT Sloan MBA Program. The track focuses on launching and developing emerging technology companies and is designed for MBA students that have a strong interest in entrepreneurship. It builds a lifetime cohort of collaborative entrepreneurial peers, and leads to an MIT Sloan Certificate in Entrepreneurship & Innovation in addition to the MBA degree. The track curriculum heavily emphasizes team practice linked to real-world entrepreneurial projects, balances theoretical and practitioner education, and provides a thorough exposure to the many building blocks of an entrepreneurial career. In addition the track leaves sufficient freedom to select other courses for which MIT is also world famous.

Finance Track
Quote:
The Finance Track is an integrated program of courses and activities designed to: (1) expose students to the institutions and practices of the financial world, (2) ground students in the principles of finance theory and in the application of theory to real problems, (3) provide students with an overview of professional opportunities in finance, and (4) allow specialization in topics of interest to students. Those who complete the Finance Track are awarded a Certificate in Finance.

I can't provide verification, because I don't believe that statistic has ever been publicly posted by Sloan. It's rumored to be as high as 70-80%.
