"Everyone is talking about financial innovation. But when you’ve worked in finance, you realize that there are so many unanswered questions. I came here with a lot of questions. Now, they’re getting answered."
Visit MIT Sloan
Join us for a day on campus. Your visit will provide you with information and insight to determine if MIT Sloan is right for you.
One of the best ways to assess your fit with the MIT Sloan MFin program is to visit campus and attend an Ambassadors Program event. During a highly interactive session hosted by current students, you will attend an MFin class, join a group information session with a member of the Admissions Committee, and enjoy a casual informational lunch with students.
Learn more about the Ambassadors Program.
On-Campus Information Session
If you are interested in visiting campus, we offer an on-campus information session with Admissions representatives. Come and learn the details of what makes MIT Sloan unique, explore the ins-and-outs of the MIT Sloan MFin application process, and take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions.
Visit on Your Own
You may also visit us on your own by simply stopping by the MFin Admissions Office and picking up a class schedule. Be sure to check our academic calendar to make sure that classes are in session before making travel plans in order to get the most out of your visit. While visiting campus, please be aware of our professional standards for the classroom:
- Plan to arrive to class early and introduce yourself to the professor
- Arrive on time and stay until the class ends
- Turn off mobile phones and computers during the class
During your visit, stop by the MFin reception desk in E48, pick up a copy of a self-guided campus tour, and be sure to take a tour of building E62!

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.”
“The assistant to the CEO was like our host mom while we were there. She arranged our housing for us, she took us out to her friend’s game farm, and we got driven around in 4x4s. She was just wonderful to meet, and we developed a personal as well as professional relationship with her.”
