I've been searching all over the place for a discussion on this, but I couldn't find anything so here I am.

McKinsey & Co. has a scholarship awarded to those that are starting their full-time MBA programs in the Fall called "Emerging scholars". Link: http://www.mckinsey.com/careers/your_ca ... g_scholars

The eligibility requirement is that you have to be accepted to one of the 16 top schools they list. Anybody have an idea why MIT Sloan is not on the list?

I also noticed this. In fact, I used that list to select which business schools to apply to this year. The only two exceptions being MIT Sloan and CMU Tepper. I know McKinsey recruits heavily from MIT Sloan. I was also encouraged by the McKinsey & Company Award on the application page. It sounds very similar to the Emerging Scholars program. Since you already applied to MIT and were accepted (congrats), I imagine you already saw this.

Quote:
McKinsey & Company awards scholarships of $10,000 each to up to four first-year MBA students at the MIT Sloan School of Management. The award recognizes MIT Sloan students with an outstanding record of academic achievement, demonstrated drive, personal impact, and distinctive leadership in professional, community or campus activities.

All incoming MBA students at MIT Sloan are eligible to receive the Award, regardless of professional experience and interest, and we encourage all applicants to apply for the Award.

The McKinsey & Company Award Committee will select the scholarship recipients based on MIT Sloan application materials, possible in-person interviews, and other relevant information. McKinsey & Company will notify the recipients directly, and the awards will be announced in early fall of the first semester.

Yeah, it doesn't trouble me due to exactly what you were citing - McKinsey recruits very heavily from Sloan, and I do know about the McKinsey award. I just thought that having a chance at the McKinsey award and being eligible for their Emerging Scholars scholarship shouldn't have to be mutually exclusive. Seems like the most likely reason for not being listed though. Can't complain I suppose!
