1. Your path before and after MIT Sloan,
2. Specific highlights about your time at MIT Sloan, and
3. How you have drawn upon the MIT Sloan network.

We encourage you to share your personal stories! We anticipate a diverse crowd so please be sensitive with your comments.  We ask that you focus on the positives of MIT Sloan and try not to compare MIT Sloan or speak negatively about other schools.

We’ve always made a big effort to be open to a variety of perspectives, but also to go beyond being open to them, to want to bring them in, because it makes for a richer environment.”

Thomas Kochan
Co-director, IWER

S-LAB: JAKARTA WATERSHED Combating a clean water crisis

“You could talk about watershed management and conservation of energy all you want. But until you put numbers to it and financial analysis to it, you’re not going to get much done.

Ian Lavery
MBA
G-LAB: NAM MEE BOOKS, THAILAND Helping a book publisher mature

Gerardo Guzman

MBA
SLOAN FELLOW Merging disciplines for climate change

Kelsey McCarty

INDIA LAB: EDUCATIONAL ENHANCEMENT Creating employable workers to boost the economy

Ted Chan

G-LAB: AIDS IN TANZANIA Striving for economic empowerment

Jeanne W. Ross

Even though we have to work five months in a row with the project, we have to deliver. This experience is more pragmatic than academic. It's a good opportunity to match those two worlds."
Camilo Syllos
