MIT Sloan: Underrated Option for Career Switchers


This review is for Sloan (MIT)

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

Two things have made my experience at Sloan great: 1) the fantastic culture embodied by the student community and 2) the variety of interests and expertise available at MIT.

Students here take their learning seriously but don't take themselves too seriously. You will find that there are few if any "hidden agendas" when it comes to collaboration and group work. People are genuinely interested in your personal experiences and look to learn from their peers.

Additionally, there's a lot of cool stuff happening at MIT. I don't think this needs much explanation. What's even better is that there's a constant push to commercialize all this cool shit, so the entrepreneurship environment is hopping and there's a lot of seed money to be spent with very low hurdles for grants.

About professors, classes and curriculum

1-term core, which will be repetitive for those who have a business undergraduate but overall, a necessary step to get everyone equipped with the same basic toolkit. I can't imagine having to go through a 1-year core when the entire program is only 2 years.
