This review is for Sloan (MIT)
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2016
Going into Sloan I had 4 main objectives -
- Transition from tech consulting into product management
- Relocated to the west coast after business school
- Bridge gaps I had domain knowledge related to leadership, finance and marketing
- Improve on my domain knowledge related to technology
MIT is a great choice to transition into a more technical career post business school. As an MBA student at MIT, you can take up to 3 classes outside of MIT Sloan to broaden your skills - taking classes at the MIT Media Lab or Computer Science Department is common among students in the program.
MIT Sloan has about 20% of their alumni base in the Ba Area so it was easy to imagine leveraging the MIT alumni network out in the bay area post business school.
MIT Sloan has 1 required core semester with the remaining 3 semester free to fill your schedule with a broad range of electives to fill any gaps you may have or double down on any areas of interest.
MIT afforded excellent recourses to take a deeper dive with technology with a number of clubs and events inside of Sloan and within the greater MIT to build more tech domain expertise.
