Hi Folks - Though I haven't received my interview invite yet and not even sure I will make it, I am REALLY curious to know who all here are planning to start their own business after MIT, especially those with net worth not in several millions + who are not company-sponsored ...! I am sure many of you have similar questions...

Drat! Dinged - got a regret mail yesterday. On the positive side(?)... means they are closing out on the waiting list early... so those hanging on tenterhooks may not have to wait long. All the best.
Before signing out, I would be very happy if someone from IT/Ops field admitted would ping me. Would be great to know what you gained from the program after a year - would like to keep in touch. Cheerios

Sorry to hear that Rammuaddib. Good luck in the future

It does look like they are moving through the waitlist quickly, anyone else have updates?

Hi TMHBoston: My net worth is short of several millions by quite some margin, unless counted in Nigerian Naira or Ugandan shillings, I am self-sponsored and planning to start my own business after MIT.

I applied on last day of R3. I intended to apply early but ended up submitting late and at very short notice in R3 because I needed my company's permission to leave before my contract expires in September 2015. My employer had initially refused to let me leave early but changed their mind later by which point the R2 deadline had passed. I applied anyway despite being international. I have not had an interview but remain hopeful that the admissions team will deem me suitable based on fit.

Hi kario,

Good to hear that - a) I am not the only one who submitted the application on the last day of R3! (very last minute decision to apply), and b) There are others who are considering starting new business.

Good luck for your application. I guess we both should hear back from MIT around the same time!

Folks, wanted to see if anyone has looked at the differences between the MIT and Stanford Sloan Fellows programs. For example, are there obvious differences in terms of the typical profile of the Fellows in terms of industry background, age/experience, geography etc? Would appreciate any inputs. Thanks much

I applied for MIT Sloan Fellows Program I did not get in. I am a Finance Director in Brazil married with 2 kids and I though I would be a good candidate. A part from this, MIT admission staff came to Brazil for and I met with them and they said I would be a good candidate for the program. I did not score well on the GMAT 590, I asked for waiver and I got it. MIT admission staff invited me to meet the campus and the program and I answered that “ I would meet the campus once I am down selected for interview”. I don´t think my answer was very good. My question here is should I reapply this year?

The MIT Sloan Fellows program is quite unlike any other masters program for business professionals out there. Quite simply because there are very few full-time options for mid-career professionals looking at MBA equivalent programs or programs that give them advanced management skills. On the one hand, there are full-time MBA programs, which will consider applicants with 12+ years of experience as older applicants, while on the other there are Executive MBA programs, which are all part-time options.

The various flavors of the Sloan Fellows Program
While the Sloan Fellows Program originated at MIT Sloan, and still exists there, it is also offered by two other top schools in slightly different flavors. The Stanford MSx is the Stanford-equivalent, while the LBS Sloan Masters in Strategy and Leadership is the London Business School equivalent. While there are strong similarities between the three programs. Each of the programs is meant for senior executives, with 12+ years of experience behind them. already have MBA degrees and are pursuing a ‘second MBA‘ through the Sloan program, so to say. Each Sloan program emphasizes leadership and strategy, as executives at that level of experience have reached a position in their careers where both domains impact them significantly. Each Sloan program is 12-14 months long, and each is offered by a top school. While these similarities exist, the Sloan Fellows programs also differ from school to school. Not all Sloan applicants need to take the GMAT. Class sizes also vary, with the MIT Sloan program having a class size around twice that of the LBS program.
