How is it as compared to the MsX program ?

Hi there

The programs are pretty similar - both full-time 1 year residential MBA programs for executives and mid-career professionals.
Differences that I noticed (Please research the schools as well, there is a ton of info on their websites)
- Sloan has regular MBA degree (along with masters options) while Stanford is only a Masters of Science. If that matters to you, can be a big deal.
- Sloan seems to put more stress on acads / quants and Stanford on leadership (personal opinion so take it FWIW).
- Location (of course) - Stanford has a clear advantage as it is in Palo Alto (Temperate climate, access to Silicon Valley, though Expensive). Boston is colder.
- Sloan has a more older cohort seemingly and a higher age limit for application.

Hope this helps.


Hi Gaurav,
Thanks for the info. I am 35 years old already and have limited options to apply. GMAT 680 and more than 7 years of entrepreneurial experience in founding and managing a cleantech startup in the thermal engineering space.

I am eligible to appy to :
1. Stanford Msx/MIT sloan fellow
2. USC marshall Ibear.
3. Stern Tech/ Cornell Tech MBA
4. Emory 1 year
5.CMU Tepper
6. Foster
7. kelley
8. UNC Kenan Flagler.
9. St gallen and Mannheim

STEM is important since I come from India. MIT has taken the lead and waved off the GMAT completely.
What are your views on the same and on the above list of schools?

I think you have a great work exp and your choice of schools also seems ok. Age is a bit of a factor for the regular 2-year programs though but if you can justify properly how MBA will add value, I think you should be good.

Please note the criteria of the schools though - IIRC, GMAT is still mandatory for MIT, just not at the time of application. All the best.

Hi Aniriddha

I was incorrect. Please refer to below communication from MIT Sloan regarding standardized test scores.

Standardized tests, such as GMAT, GRE, EA, TOEFL, IELTS, are a component of the application and play an important role in our holistic evaluation process. However, in view of challenges brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, we will allow candidates for the 2020-21 admission cycle to submit their application without the test; we will review their submitted material as is and without negative inferences. If admitted, candidates will not be required to take the tests.

Additionally, applicants are welcome to submit other pieces of evidence, such as expired test scores (GMAT, GRE, EA, etc.); MITx MicroMasters, CORe, edX, MBAMath, or any other non-degree coursework completed; or certifications earned such as CPA, ACCA, CFA, etc.; all of which may assist the Admissions Committee in its evaluation process.


Also, you might want to look at European schools if you are interested as they have a slightly older student base.

Hi Gaurav,
That's right.MIT has taken the bold step of waiving off the GMAT completely just as Harvard did in the 80's.
St Gallen, Mannheim and Said business school are my options in Europe. Most of the other such as Judge, Imperial,Esade, iese need younger students.
I am skeptical about Alliance Manchester. Have you spoken with their alumni ?

Sorry no idea, maybe you can check the relevant thread in GMATClub. Btw, there is LBS fellows as well, similar to the Sloan Fellows and MSX programs.

Hi all! I hope you are well and healthy while waiting for the interview invitations (hopefully)!

Just wanted to ask if you have any idea / hint as to when the interview invitations will go out? The email response from MIT just mentioned that the invitations will be sent by end of October. However, based on previous years the invitations were sent in 2 batches between 25-28th of October.

I couldn't find a link for this. Is this event listed on the MIT website or did you receive a separate invitation for this?

Have you already applied VrajeshP?

Strange, I didn't get an invitation. The event doesn't show up in the regular list of events as well.
