"From grad mixers at Walker Memorial to campus walking tours highlighting MIT’s creative hacking culture, and of course, parties in the graduate residence halls, MIT is on to something when it brings together MBAs, PhDs and graduate engineering students. After all, it takes a multi-disciplinary approach to solve today’s challenges, and giving us a platform to form these relationships is just the start. For anyone considering MIT Sloan for their MBA, take note: you are not just coming to the Sloan School of Management, you are coming to MIT."

"One of the major attractions of coming to MIT Sloan was the opportunity to get involved in the greater MIT community. Years before coming here, I had been in awe of all of the innovations coming out of MIT Media Labs. So, when the opportunity to intern with the Media Lab’s Camera Culture group presented itself – I was overjoyed. One of the early unanticipated perks of being plugged into the Media Labs is hearing about talks I’d otherwise be unaware of. For example, when the former head of the Nobel Prize in Medicine was breezing through campus and gave an intimate presentation on how exactly Nobel Prize nominations and selections work."

“A big part about what makes MIT Sloan unique is that it's MIT. There are a lot of ways you can get involved with the rest of the campus. A perfect example is a class called Innovation Teams. In this class, a cross-functional group of students from across MIT get pitched MIT-based technologies by those who need help commercializing and developing their business models. Some people go on and start businesses with those technologies.”

"I was very much under the impression that business schools were sort of like an island, where people only interacted with other MBAs as a sort of self-sustaining community. Not here! One of the things that I love about MIT Sloan is that it does a good job of integrating with the rest of MIT. And if you know what you're interested in and you know what you're looking for, you can go and find someone working on the absolute, most cutting-edge technology in that particular field."

"There are people here who are quoted in The Wall Street Journal every day, who are developing very cutting-edge web technology. And they'll talk to me, just because I'm part of the MIT community. And I really do feel like MIT Sloan does a good job of making you aware of and integrated into all of the different areas where MIT is working."

"Incredible things happen in the labs and departments across MIT's campus every day. As students at MIT Sloan, we are strongly encouraged to explore everything the Institute has to offer - not just the business school, but the innovative things happenings in the other courses across MIT. It's pretty awesome to know that down the street, fellow MIT folk are developing robots and inventing a gazillion other things that will change the world. Which is all to say: it's pretty cool to be at MIT. Almost every day, I feel impressed, inspired, excited, and totally intimidated by all the brainiacs on this campus."

"There are preconceived notions that come along with recognition, and for MIT, they are all incredible:  intelligence, hard work, international prestige, analytical thinking, mathematical understanding. The list just goes on and on.  The more that I get out in the world, the more I realize the weight that the Institute holds, and the doors that open simply because you have the words "Massachusetts Institute of Technology," on your resume.

“If you are looking for a place that is going to help you get in the door – looking for a place that will give you a leg up on the competition without ever saying a single word – then I am confident that MIT is the place for you."
