Both Sloan and booth are top notch MBA programs with specific strengths, and arguably come in the top 5 MBA school. However between the two programs, which school has a stronger brand name and stronger alumni network?

Yes. Among general masses, MIT as an overall institution is better known than University of Chicago. So your uncle or may know MIT and not U of Chicago but the employers hiring you would likely know both and aware of rankings.

In which environment are you talking? international or domestic? I cab argue that MIT is better brand than Booth but inside US, I think that both are almost equal, with Booth higher in ranking. Both have strong alumni inside US but MIT has wider alumni outside.

MIT all the way.
Much Stronger brand name internationally.

Outside the US-> Many people have no idea what U of Chicago is.
And most know MIT.


In the US the situation might be different.

But I would always choose MIT here.
ALWAYS.

This shouldn't even be up for discussion! MIT brand wins in brand hands down. Sloan will always be one of those business schools that no matter the ranking it will still be in people's desired list. (More people apply to Sloan than Booth, and that says a lot since Booth has the highest acceptance rate of the M7 and Sloan one of the lowest).
Sloan is one of those b-schools that is always mentioned as "MIT Sloan", and not simply because it wants to take advantage of the MIT name, it is because Sloan is REALLY a part of the broader university and MIT lifestyle. Other bschools are a lot more separated from the parent university (pros and cons from that). So if you are a Sloanie, you really are a part of MIT.

If anything, the fact that MIT must always be mentioned before Sloan suggests that people might not immediately know what Sloan is unless you mention the parent institution. Regardless, it's certainly up for discussion given Booth is higher ranked in all of the MBA rankings, and this post is focused on MBA brand - not overall university brand, which I would agree goes to MIT. For that reason, MIT has the edge internationally, but I don't think it's clear cut in the US, especially among people in the know.
