MIT Sloan Master of Finance (MFin): Interview Tips & Updates

Congratulations to those of you who have submitted an application for our Master of Finance (MFin) program! Our admissions team is busy reading your applications, and we are excited to learn more about you!

A critical part of our evaluation process is the interview. It is an opportunity to bring your application to life and for us to get to know you a little better. In addition, the interview is an important time for us (and you!) to assess your fit with the MIT Sloan community. I encourage you to look at the attached interview guide with information to help you prepare. Since many of you are asking, here is what to expect:

  • Interviews are by invitation only and are a requirement for admission.
  • Interview invitations will begin going out on Monday, January 23rd and will continue to be sent on a rolling basis.  We make every effort to send interview invitations at least 1 week prior to your interview date.  The timing of your interview invitation is not a reflection of the strength of your candidacy. It’s about ensuring the quality and consistency of reviews and to ensure things go smoothly with interview sign-ups.
  • Interviews will be held from January 30 – February 22.
  • Interviews will be conducted in person in several key locations around the globe including Cambridge MA, London, Mumbai, Santiago, Singapore, Beijing, and Shanghai.
  • Candidates who are invited to interview will sign up for a 45-minute to 1-hour time block and will meet with 1-2 interviewers.
  • The interview will consist of both a behavioral assessment and a career assessment.
