Running a small business while at MIT Sloan

MIT Sloan alum Hiram Samel runs Merida Meridian, a Boston-based manufacturer of distinctive textiles. It's a small company, but a global company, with operations in 20 countries. A 2006 graduate of the MIT Sloan Fellows Program in Innovation and Global Leadership, Samel chose the program's two-year flexible schedule option. It was a great option for a small business owner, he says -- not only because he could accommodate both school and a dynamic business but also because the learning didn't stop when he was back tending to the company.

Preparing to apply? Tips from Rod Garcia

Rod Garcia is a good man to know -- and not just because he's the director of MBA Admissions. There's very little that this 19-year MIT Sloan veteran doesn't know about the students, faculty, and, perhaps most importantly, the soul of the School. As Admissions season gears up, Rod sat down with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate to discuss the ins and outs of the admissions process and what MIT Sloan looks for in an MBA candidate.

Student Stories: Oliseyi Boroffice

Growing up in Nigeria, Seyi witnessed the effects of poverty firsthand. Consequently, the steps he's taken as an adult have been moving toward one goal: alleviating that poverty. As a recent graduate of the MIT Sloan/JFK School of Government dual-degree program, Seyi learned key lessons in how to make business work in the complex, and often insufficient, infrastructure of a developing country. A firm believer that entrepreneurship is essential to creating jobs and eradicating poverty, Seyi is headed back to his native land to put his education and his passion to work. On the eve of his graduation, correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate spoke with Seyi about resisting the lure of big business in the U.S. and his hopes for the future of Nigeria.

Student Stories: Samantha Joseph, MBA '09

Samantha Joseph is very comfortable leaping into the unknown. And for this skydiving instructor with a liberal arts background, business school is just that. Samantha gives her thoughts on the value of her untraditional background, her love of travel, and transitioning from parachutes to business suits.

Opportunities in Infrastructure and Built Environments

Half the world's population currently lives in cities, and that number is spiraling upward, as urban settlements gobble up most of the world's natural resources and emit the most pollutants.

Meet MIT Sloan's new dean: David Schmittlein

Twenty-seven years ago Dave Schmittlein was a 25-year-old assistant marketing professor at Wharton teaching MBA students who were on average three years his senior. Now, he is the new dean of MIT Sloan, charged in part with ensuring MIT Sloan's MBA Program provides value to today's generation of 28-year-olds. The true measure of that value, he says, lies beyond the confines of one academic program. MIT Sloan's value accrues from its array of programs, its role as a forum for top business leaders, and its creation of knowledge that benefits all tiers of the global community. Correspondents Michelle Choate and Scott Rolph spoke with Dean Schmittlein about MIT Sloan's role as a premier management school, his background, and his thoughts on what he aims to accomplish as dean.

Student Stories: Matt Weiss, MBA '07

Elizabeth Prior knows how to manage stress and insecurity. As a resident of New Orleans, she endured Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, spending months moving around the country, living in hotels and with relatives.

Now in her second year at MIT Sloan, things are relatively calm for Elizabeth as she sets her sites on a career that makes a positive social impact.

Using power for good

Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." That's not necessarily a quote you'd expect to hear from the CEO of a global service company speaking to business school students. But that's precisely the message Marilyn Carlson Nelson brought to MIT Sloan during her March 2006 Dean's Innovative Leader Series appearance, presented here. Nelson heads the Carlson Companies, a privately held parent corporation of global integrated service companies. She's also a widely recognized leader in corporate social responsibility. Carlson Companies, she said, is very much attuned to the implications of its operations for the environment and people across the globe. She urged students to take the same path, asking them to focus on business models aimed at both profitability and improving the world. "You have a tremendous opportunity to use power for good," she said. Nelson is introduced by MIT Sloan Professor Gabriel Bitran.

Student Stories: Megan Ford

Megan Ford's road to business school took some less-than-traditional turns. A member of the Screen Actor's Guild, Megan has worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes on several movies and tv shows (see Mona Lisa Smile, Law and Order, Dawson's Creek). Through her strong connections in the New York film and political communities, she became involved in the non-profit Asia Society, traveling throughout India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Thailand, and Korea. The more time she spent off set, the more Megan began to think about her long-term goals. She took the first step toward a new career by coming to MIT Sloan. Her current focus is the strategy and marketing side of media and entertainment; it's certainly different from acting, but Megan will be on familiar ground. Before beginning her internship with Disney, Megan talked with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about the benefits of the alumni network, the joys of production, and the difference between the talent side and the studio side.
