Alumni Network MIT Sloan alumni have a lifelong connection to the school. They help guide current students through their MIT Sloan experience and counsel them on future plans. They contribute to campus discussions and conferences, sharing experiences and expertise. As an integral part of annual trips and treks, alumni host receptions for visiting students. MIT Sloan's MBA is a two-year program, but the relationships students build last a lifetime. When students graduate, they are connected to a network of more than 23,000 MIT Sloan alumni and more than 128,000 MIT alumni around the world. In more than 75 MIT Alumni Association Clubs in over 40 countries, fellow alumni foster close connections to one another and to MIT Sloan. More than 4,000 MIT and MIT Sloan alumni across industries have volunteered to share their wealth of experience as advisors. The Institute Career Assistance Network connects these alumni with current students and other alumni. The MIT Sloan Student-Alumni Mentoring Program, a service provided by the MIT Sloan Office of External Relations, offers students another valuable source of career guidance. Through the program, students select mentors from a pool of hundreds of MIT Sloan alumni. With diverse backgrounds in a variety of industries and functions, these volunteers provide important insights to our students.
