MIT (Sloan)

MIT is located in the Boston Economic Area- the sixth largest economic area in the US.

FT 2005 ranks MIT #13 worldwide along with IMD and UC Berkeley. This makes MIT #10 among US schools.

EIU 2004 ranks MIT #16 worldwide- among US schools just below Duke and Yale and just above Cornell and UCLA.

The best showing on BW has been #4, the worst has been #15 (twice).

What are the strengths of Sloan?
As far as I know: academic rigor and strong quantitative focus, what else?

Many of MIT's strength are what one would probably expect- Tech, Entrepreneurship/New Enterprises, Operations, and Finance. Another strength is International Business. One might say that it does not have the full array of strengths that characterize the other ultra elites, but it is exceptionally strong in Tech and stronger in most fields than the vast majority of schools in lower clusters.

Hi Hjort,

What are MIT's strengths in the area of quantitative finance and applied technolgy in Finance ? Would this be a good destination to help me follow a 'hedge fund' industry career path ?

In fact out of all the Ultra Elites, which ones are the best suited for this ?

Am excited by what I hear of the MIT Sloan MBA, with the Entrepreneurship & Innovation focus.

Legatum's recent $50m gift to create the Center for Development & Entrepreneurship will support and fund "Fellows" or aspiring entrepreneurs from developing countries. Link: http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2007/legatum-0917.html An alumnus of Sloan suggested (and recommended me) for this. Just wondering... How would this compare with Other M7 MBA programs? (Of course, much of this depends on even getting an opportunity to choose!) Thanks.

It might seem odd, but while H/S/W are ranked highest, I am most excited by this program.

Hi bsd_lover,

I'm not a really expert on hedge funds, but the people who are, they are in front of me.

None of them has a MBA, but all of them are CAIA (http://www.caia.org/)

That's what I see...

Regards

Dear Hjort,

What would you consider to be areas of improvements or shortcomings of the Sloan program?

@mlchang616

I have heard that MIT Sloan sends an incredibly number of students into consulting and the links above confirm it. I have also heard that Sloan is not nearly as well respected in so-called "soft" fields such as CPG etc. Am I off on this?

I really like the small feel to Sloan and how it emphasizes such strong quants in a day and age where that is so important. In addition, I like the Boston area.
