Update & Sloan Innovation Period

It is officially springtime in Boston! We are hopeful that the next few weeks will bring warmer weather and outdoor activities for the MIT Sloan community to enjoy. Here in the Admissions Office, we are in the final stages of the 2014 application season. MBA Round 2 applicants will receive decisions on Tuesday, April 1. I wanted to take the time to thank all applicants for applying to MIT Sloan. It was a very competitive year for the MBA, MFin, and MSMS programs, and the Admissions Team enjoyed learning about you throughout this process.

During the spring semester, some students use Sloan Innovation Period (SIP) and spring break for their on-site visits to host companies  as part of their Action Learning Labs. Both China and India Lab students headed off to their respective countries for an intensive two weeks working on their projects and connecting with company representatives. Check out the incredible experience MBA student Nadir Vissanjy had last week in Beijing.

SVST 2014

Sloanies traveled to some amazing locations on their treks and study tours – Japan, Morocco, New York City, Israel, Palestine, Sweden, Spain, and Germany. Entrepreneurship & Innovation Track students also took a trip to the venture capital community in Northern California on the Silicon Valley Study Tour. They had the opportunity to meet with founders and CEOs of startups and successful enterprises in various fields of their interests. Be sure to keep checking the MIT Sloan Student Blog for more SIP stories!
