    Policies for Recruiting First-year MBA Students (Class of 2020)

    The policies below allow first-year MBA students time to adjust to the academic experience during their first semester at MIT Sloan. It also allows them to participate in our customized career programming aimed at self-assessment and career exploration. Please respect the following policies for recruiting first-year MBA students:

    1. Company presentations for summer internship recruiting begin on October 1, 2018. Our office will not endorse or advertise any recruiting events held before this date, including pre-matriculation events.
    2. Company recruiting presentations, job opportunities, and office hours must be arranged and promoted through the Career Development Office.
    3. Advertisements for company presentations, job opportunities, and requests for office hours should be sent to Danielle Grassia or Susan Todd (please see Contact us to identify your industry’s point person).
    4. Resumes for first-year MBA students may not be requested before October 9, 2018 for any purpose, including informational interviews, company visits, or office hours.
    5. Employers may not request or access student mailing lists, listserv information, or the MIT Sloan student photobook.
    6. Office hours/informational sessions must be held in a group format (two or more students) until summer internship recruiting begins in January.

    Club Events during the Fall Semester

    1. During the fall semester, club events must be educational and not recruiting-focused. Speakers may discuss industry trends, company projects, or share other intellectual capital. 
    2. Club events must be arranged through the Career Development Office. Events may not be scheduled directly with club leaders during the fall semester. Please contact either Danielle Grassia or Susan Todd.

    Scheduling and Conducting Interviews

    1. All interviews must be scheduled around student class commitments. Please do not ask students to miss a class or an exam for interviews or company visits. We request that firms give students at least 24 hours notice (preferably 48 hours) when extending interview invitations. Please give students several options for dates and times for 2nd-round interviews. These practices help students manage potential academic conflicts more effectively.
    2. Upon request, companies may offer an open for bid schedule.
    3. Conducting interviews or extending offers is not allowed before January 7, 2019.
    4. Students should be kept abreast of the status of their candidacy after each round of interviews. We require firms to directly communicate both affirmative and negative decisions within a reasonable timeframe.

    Honoring Offers and Acceptances

    We expect that all offers and acceptances be made in good faith. Students are obliged to honor accepted offers. Defaulting on an acceptance is a breach of MIT Sloan's Recruiting Policies.

    Please speak with a member of the Recruiting team as soon as possible in any of the following circumstances:

    • If a student defaults on an offer.
    • If you withdraw an offer that has been extended and accepted.
    • If your organization has difficulty negotiating terms or faces other challenges involving our policies or practices.
