Love Sloan


This review is for Sloan (MIT)

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

Having researched the school and interacted with plenty of classmates before school, I came into Sloan with high expectations. But I have to say that the school has exceeded them all. Two things have especially stood out for me: the opportunities and the people. I knew that attending MIT would open a lot of doors, but I am amazed on a daily basis how many doors have been opened for me and how much companies and people value and respect the MIT brand. Additionally, the variety and breadth of classes that a student can take is outstanding.
But it's the people that make Sloan what it is. Everyone is super friendly and accessible - always willing to help with classwork, networking, or advice and support for personal issues. I knew coming in that I would be involved in the community, but the energy is infectious and you end up doing four or five times the activities and events you thought you would.
I cannot say enough good things about the school, best decision I have ever made.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Tons of variety and opportunities. The professors are super engaging and interesting, and the short core curriculum gives you the freedom to explore a variety of fields and interests.

About job placement process

Sloan has a quiet period for the first month of core where companies cannot contact students, allowing the students to get their bearings with school and social life before diving into the recruiting process. Once that starts, you are wined and dined by top companies on a daily basis, and there are more opportunities than students.
