MIT Sloan essays/requirements


  • Cover Letter
    MIT Sloan seeks students whose personal characteristics demonstrate that they will make the most of the incredible opportunities at MIT, both academic and non-academic. We are on a quest to find those whose presence will enhance the experience of other students. We seek thoughtful leaders with exceptional intellectual abilities and the drive and determination to put their stamp on the world. We welcome people who are independent, authentic, and fearlessly creative — true doers. We want people who can redefine solutions to conventional problems, and strive to preempt unconventional dilemmas with cutting-edge ideas. We demand integrity and respect passion.

    Taking the above into consideration, please submit a cover letter seeking a place in the MIT Sloan MBA Program. Your letter should conform to a standard business correspondence, include one or more examples that illustrate why you meet the desired criteria above, and be addressed to the Assistant Deans of Admissions, Rod Garcia and Dawna Levenson (300 words or fewer, excluding address and salutation).

  • Resume
    Please submit a one-page resume (Times New Roman 10 point font preferred) that includes your employment history and academic record in reverse chronological order. Other information appropriate to a business resume is welcomed and encouraged, including extracurricular activities, awards, and achievements. Please REDACT your name, address, and contact information. For formatting purposes, please list the information in the following order:

    - Education – please feel free to include relevant awards, scholarships, professional societies
    - Work Experience – please list in reverse chronological order and include: company name, title, results-oriented bullets that demonstrate your skill set, and dates.
    - Additional information – languages, extracurricular activities/community service, technical skills/certifications, special skills/interests (if appropriate)

  • Video Statement
    Please take a minute to introduce yourself to your future classmates via video. Include a bit on your past experience and why MIT Sloan is the best place for you to pursue your MBA. Videos should be a single take (no editing) lasting no more than one minute and consisting of you speaking directly to the camera. We recommend using an application such as QuickTime or iMovie to record yourself.
    Upload the video file according to the detailed instructions within the application. We support the following file formats: .avi, .flv, .m1v, .m2v, .m4v, .mkv, .mov, .mpeg, .mpg, .mp4, .webm, .wmv
    Should you experience difficulties uploading your file, please ensure that you're using a modern web browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) on the fastest wired internet connection available. An intermittent or slow internet connection can cause uploads to timeout.

  • Organizational Structure
    Please upload an organizational chart which outlines the internal structure of your department and company. Limit to two pages.
    Note: You may choose to create your own document or redact individuals' names. However, please provide as much information as possible.
    We should be able to see your line of reporting to the top of your organization, and to easily find you, your peers, your supervisor, their peers, and your direct reports (should you have any), as well as any recommender or references from your current organization. For those in consulting, please submit an organizational chart of a current or previous project you were staffed on. Please use the sample organizational chart displayed in the application as a guideline.

I often encourage clients to apply to Sloan because it requires a small up-front investment, if you have done the CV correctly. Also, the deadline is towards the end of the cycle so it's a way to leverage your efforts.

Cover Letter: They believe your past is the best indicator of your future - and so it indicates what you will bring to your class/ocean at Sloan. In the cover letter, try to get clear on your brand promise: what you deliver in every setting. And then provide a couple examples that illustrate this in STAR format.

The key is to succinctly articulate what the heck is so special about you, and for you to substantiate that.

Video: This is the first time they are asking "why Sloan" in the video which requires you to interview some past and current students, but the upshot of that your interviewees are writing your essay for you, if you ask good questions!

They are asking for you to include a bit about your experience. This surprises me, because they usually like to learn about a different dimension to you in this video. However I am sure they want to see how you might present your background in an interview. Make sure to communicate this experience in simple, relatable, universal language.

One minute is not a lot of time, maybe about 130 words. But do squeeze in a bit that helps them get to know you as a person, where you are from, maybe a bit about family (or not) but definitely your hobbies. You want to come across as energetic, interesting and well-rounded (not a boring robotic engineer.) Someone who you would enjoy speaking to at a cocktail party. That is the threshold.
