  • The MIT Experience

    Welcome to our inspiring, respected global community.

    There is no other place on earth quite like MIT.  The MIT experience begins with our community of students, faculty and staff — a dynamic, inspiring and welcoming group.  We have assembled the best talent from all corners of the earth, and together we are a powerful force.  We challenge each other to excel, and to have a positive impact on the world.

    When you step onto campus, you’ll experience the energy of a recognized hub for innovation in finance, entrepreneurship and technology.  It’s a place where experimentation, exploration and pushing boundaries is encouraged and supported.  You’ll also sense our informality and culture of mutual respect.  Despite our elite status, the MIT community of high achievers is known for being refreshingly down to earth.

    As an MIT Sloan student, you’ll gain access to an entire finance ecosystem — a wide array of clubs, events, speakers, competitions, study tours, research centers and recruiting initiatives that provide opportunities for growth, discovery and networking outside the classroom.

    When you graduate, the MIT experience goes with you.  You’ll become part of our legendary global alumni network — people who speak the language of MIT, and who are ready and willing to support you personally and professionally throughout your career.  And among employers, you’ll find a respect and admiration for the MFin program, in particular the role of MIT finance as the creators of modern finance.  The MIT name — and the trust and competence it confers to each graduate — cannot be duplicated.

    Connecting across campus

    Working across campus with students and faculty from other disciplines is one of the most exciting opportunities at MIT Sloan. These cross-campus connections often provide the spark that ignites new ideas, new products, and new companies. Cross-disciplinary study and teamwork are built into the structure and culture of both MIT Sloan and MIT.

    MFin students routinely take classes from departments outside MIT Sloan to pursue their interests and round out their knowledge and skills. The Healthcare Certificate, Sustainability Certificate, and Business Analytics Certificate are open to all MIT students. Action Learning labs and the Finance Research Practicum℠ can also include students from across MIT. MIT Sloan faculty are deeply involved in cross-disciplinary research centers like the MIT Innovation Initiative, the MIT Center for Finance and Policy, and the MIT Leadership Center, as well as many others. Students routinely work together at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and on teams in startup competitions and hackathons.


    A private institution of just under 11,000 students (60 percent graduate students) and about 1,100 faculty, MIT sits on a 168-acre campus along the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It’s a short walk across the Mass Ave Bridge to the city of Boston. MIT Sloan is located on the Red Line subway in Kendall Square.
