Standing behind our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, MIT Sloan is beginning a process to gather rich, longitudinal data about our graduates. It’s the spirit of innovation that led the Career Development Office to drive employment reporting standards among our peer schools and serve as a leader in the longitudinal appraisal of career outcomes. With this new initiative, we will innovate again.
This fall, MIT Sloan will partner with the Career Leadership Collective to conduct a national online survey to collect career pathway data from alumni. The National Alumni Career Mobility Survey (NACM) will be open through December 2020 for the collection of career outcomes, satisfaction, and salary data from MIT Sloan alumni who graduated in 2010 and 2015.
The data collected by this survey will help the school share a richer story of career opportunities post-graduation, and be used to prepare future alumni for career success. The survey will also support diversity and equity efforts by allowing the school to benchmark and compare alumni career paths and salary data across demographics, looking for trends by gender, ethnicity, and race.
At graduation, MIT Sloan graduates secure similar opportunities with equal pay, but is this still true 5 and 10 years into their careers? This is an important question, and participation in this survey will provide answers that will inform how the school can better support equity and opportunity for alumni as they chart a course for success.
