"One of the best parts of MIT Sloan is that you create your own academic experience. After the first semester, you are free to select your own electives – at Sloan, across MIT, or even at Harvard. This fall I am especially excited to take Global Entrepreneurship Lab (AKA “G-Lab”); a special seminar on managing financial institutions; and Leadership Stories, where we learn how to lead through film and literature."

"One of the reasons why I came to MIT Sloan was to learn more about Entrepreneurship. I didn't necessarily want to become an entrepreneur right after school, but I realized that these two years could be an unrivaled opportunity to learn more about Entrepreneurship by getting hands on and working on a cool idea. I then decided to take the New Enterprises course this Spring, with the aim of having a formal training on the subject.  I ended up meeting an incredible team of two Sloanies, which together with two engineers from Harvard (One PhD candidate and a PostDoc) started working on developing a business plan for an award-winning robotic hand using state-of-the-art sensing technology.


"Fueled by the team momentum and enthusiasm, we embarked on the 100K journey by submitting our initial business plan proposal a few weeks ago. Now, almost a week before the semifinal round submission is due, we are intensively working on making an outstanding busines plan by characterizing the market, business model and product, through customer resarch, team discussions and industry expert interviews."

"MIT Sloan has a range of classes that involve action learning, but G-lab is one of the most intense ones. Your team works together with your host company to solve an issue that is real for them.  To be exposed to such a different environment and have the chance to have a positive impact in a company was one of the experiences that I was looking forward during my MBA. That’s why G-Lab is wel- known, not only among students but also among prospective students that apply to MIT Sloan."

"The Sloan Innovation Period is a week-long study of Ethics and Leadership, and a break from our typical course-load. I was lucky to participate in four different workshops, all a great investment in my learning experience – these workshops tended to be smaller, more action-based and quite informative."

“What is unique about the Finance Track at MIT Sloan is the ability to specialize in a particular discipline within finance and the quality of the faculty is second to none. Whether you want to pursue a career in banking, the buy side, or sales and trading, there are faculty members who have experience in the industry, or are thought leaders with a tremendous network which they are more than happy to share with their students.”

"This semester, as part of my leadership credits, I have undertaken the course 'EnActing Leadership: Shakespeare and Performance'. We are performing Shakespeare's epic play, 'Hamlet' which recounts the story of a flawed hero who in spite of having the authority and resources fails to act on time. I was initially very skeptical about relating acting and management, but come to think of it, this course is probably the best that one could take. The opportunity to study non-business subjects at a B-School was a big factor behind me in selecting MIT Sloan, and my choice has been vindicated. I am at MIT Sloan and yet the opportunities have ensured that I still get time to appreciate literature too."
