There are many reasons people from all walks of life around the world come to MIT Sloan for their MBA – to build advanced skills, turbocharge career paths, start something new or discover their true passion. What we all have in common is a desire for more than professional success; we want to be a part of something bigger, bolder, and more impactful. It takes a special environment to capture your imagination and push your limits. That’s MIT Sloan.
MIT Sloan provides extensive resources to help students develop the job search skills and contacts that will enable them to manage their careers for life. During the academic year, the Career Development Office sponsors many programs designed to help students set and achieve career goals. MIT Sloan MBA students begin building essential career management skills in their first semester through Career Core, a comprehensive career curriculum delivered in partnership with the faculty. Career Core exposes students to the current job market and specific opportunities for MBAs, while helping them understand the career-planning process. Students learn how to analyze personal strengths, interests, and values in order to effectively market themselves.
The Career Development Office provides students numerous opportunities to interact with corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, and company representatives from all realms of the business world during their time at MIT Sloan. Office staff also work with student clubs to help plan highly interactive group visits, or "career treks", to industry hot spots. Students participate in on-campus recruiting, networking events, and career fairs and have access to personalized advising and alumni contacts. Office staff also holds student seminars to help job seekers polish their persuasive communication, interviewing, and negotiating skills.
