Passionate and humble classmates with great school resources!


This review is for Sloan (MIT)

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2024

Experience during the program

As a first year, I have been surprised by the sheer amount of resources and opportunities that are available to all students, such as the incredible entrepreneurial ecosystem. If you are interested in something, there will be a way for you to do it - whether it's starting your own FinTech startup through FinTech Ventures, completing an internship with a company through PM Lab, or even taking a coding class within the MIT engineering community.
Please share about the school, career services, and student life. My favorite part of the program has to be the students and my classmates - people have such diverse backgrounds and interests and are incredibly collaborate and supportive of each other, whether it's your core team doing accounting homework together, or prepping for a case interview, people are always willing to help. When I was applying for my MBA, I wanted to be part of a program that was on the smaller side and where I could become close to my cohort. With ~400 students per year, it's been a great experience always having the opportunity to meet new people, but still know a large majority of people in the class.

My advice for prospective student is: Be sure to highlight past examples and stories of leadership in your cover letter and application. In addition, if you come to Sloan - be open-minded about experiences and opportunities, and embrace the discomfort. Whether it's taking a class you don't know anything about, grabbing coffee with someone you don't know, launching your own venture, or joining a rock band (a plug for Rolling Sloans), discomfort can mean a lot of amazing growth and learning!

About professors, classes and curriculum

The professors are incredibly well-respected and leaders in their field. It's inspiring to take classes with them and become close with them, which is very common at Sloan. In addition, there are a wide selection of courses within Sloan (and across MIT and Harvard, where you are welcome to take classes as well!). Even though Sloan is not officially a "non-grade-disclosure" program, it's very hard to get lower than a B if you put in some effort into the class. However, I find that the emphasis on in-person classes/lack of flexibility for students missing classes for recruiting to be a surprise and an area for improvement.
