The MIT Sloan MBA Application is now live! With the Round 1 deadline approaching in September, the next few months are the perfect time to get to work preparing your application. We do advise you to follow our application instructions closely.

Our Admissions Team is here to support you throughout the process. In addition to travelling the world this summer, team members are in the office  Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm.  Appointments are not required to speak with members of our staff, so if you’re in the area, feel free to stop by. We also offer on campus information sessions once a month, and self-guided tours any time. For those of you unable to travel, we have digital resources like online chats, student blogs, and our Student Profiles page.

Good luck as you get started! Please reach out to us if you have any questions at 617-258-5434 or mbaadmissions@sloan.mit.edu.

Our website has further details and directions

We also have made some changes to our application. This year, instead of responding to an essay question,  we are asking applicants to submit a cover letter along with their resume. Your cover letter is an opportunity to introduce yourself, describe your past successes, and explain why MIT Sloan’s MBA Program is the right place for you. The optional essay remains available, and you can share additional information about yourself in any format.

We’ll be sharing more tips and information in the months to come. We hope to see you at one of our events this summer!
