Women’s Week Recap: Here Is What You Missed

CL0OpJLUYAAZVVR.jpg-largeI am excited about the success of our recent Women’s Week events. Over 1,000 people registered for at least one of six events! We kicked things off with a Google Hangout and then held panel discussions in Chicago, Washington DC, New York City, Boston, and San Francisco. Our events featured a mix of current students and alumnae from our MBA, LGO, EMBA, and Sloan Fellows programs. The primary objective of Women’s Week was to share the MIT Sloan experience from a woman’s perspective. Our panelists answered a wide variety of questions, from why they chose MIT Sloan, to their favorite Action Learning experience, to what to consider when choosing an MBA program. Each event concluded with networking with an expanded group of alumnae and current students. Check out our Storify recap to see more.

While Women’s Week may be over, there are many opportunities for you to experience MIT Sloan. Please join us for our Women’s Ambassador’s Day on December 3rd; you can register here. We also have many events through the rest of the summer and fall.

I look forward to seeing you on campus, and to receiving your application–apply here.

MIT Sloan’s Master of Finance Program (MFin) advances in global rankings of the Financial Times

I am happy to see tSloan MBA Master of Financehe growth of the Master of Finance Program (MFin), which hosted its first five-year reunion this month. For the second year in a row, we have been ranked the top U.S. masters program for early-stage finance professionals by the Financial Times and have improved our overall ranking to #5 in the world.

I am also excited to announce some new opportunities in our MFin Program. We now offer two concentrations, Capital Markets and Corporate Finance, which are optional but allow for specialized, focused study. In addition, the MFin experience is now being delivered in both a 12-month and an 18-month format, which begins this fall. While the degree requirements are the same for both, the 18-month pilot allows students to complete a summer internship and take additional electives.

We look forward to meeting you on the road
this summer!
