a student-led group that works with MIT and MIT Sloan alumni, faculty, staff,
and the greater business community to increase opportunities for women and to
advance the careers of current female students. SWIM’s mentorship program,
which matches incoming students with second-year students, is designed to
create a supportive community and a more enjoyable MIT Sloan experience.
Mentors advise first-year students on all facets of business school,
including class recommendations, career advice, and helping with cultural
adjustment. Two of the most anticipated student-run events are the MIT Sloan
