This review is for Sloan (MIT)
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2019
So far it has been an amazing ride! It is like Disney World for adults. Sloan admissions staff are very picky, but they do an amazing job of getting humble, down to Earth individuals with simply amazing/impressive backgrounds. Honestly the students here are so amazing. The ocean system (cohorts) are awesome I love my ocean!!
What I love about Sloan is that there is sooo much to do. Constant innovation in every activity, class, project. But the SOCIAL LIFE has been unbeatable. Sloanies love to travel, go out and get to know each other. BHP bar every Wednesday, C-Functions (Beer Consumption Functions) on Thursdays, Treks to all over the world (with more than half the class going on these treks), Pre-Function (Trip before Orientation - I got to go to Prague) ski trip, balls, Oktoberfest, Clubs, retreats, the list goes on and on.
I can't say enough about my classmates. I feel like I am studying with the next set of billionaires. Definitely a big entrepreneurial culture (even if you are not an entrepreneur like me). The access to the rest of MIT is amazing, having the MIT email alone has given me incredible power to network not just with alumni, but CEOs and entrepreneurs.
I came from NY with a Finance background, the finance professors are top notch (already met a handful of MIT finance Nobel Laureates) and being taught by one at the moment. I am so happy that I chose Sloan, I want to stay in Finance, so it was not an easy decision (I was also accepted at 2 other Finance Heavy M7 schools). But I definitely made the right one!!
Sloan has only one core semester which you take with your "ocean". It is lots of fun, and VERY flexible after Core. School makes sure to pack the core with top notch professors.
