Our admissions team is hitting the road soon with a busy summer recruiting calendar. We hope to see you at one of our events this summer!
It’s hard to believe that the 2016 – 2017 admissions season is nearing its end. We recently sent out MBA Round 2 decisions and we welcomed both MBAn and MFin AdMITs at our admitted student events. Our MBA R2 adMIT Weekend is also around the corner from April 20 – 22.
We do have one final upcoming application deadline for Round 3 MBA Admissions. Applications for this round must be submitted by April 10, 2017 by 3:00p.m. EST. All interviews for this round will take place on-campus, and candidates who apply during Round 3 will receive final decision notifications on or by May 17, 2017. Given the strength of the applicant pool in Round 1 and Round 2, we do anticipate a very competitive process with limited seats in Round 3. However, we do look forward to receiving your applications. Feel free to email us with any questions throughout the application process.
I would like to begin by congratulating the recently admitted members of the MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2019. We cannot wait to meet you on campus for AdMIT Weekend on February 17 & 18, 2017.
With winter break approaching, on behalf of the entire Admissions Team, I would also like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday season. Our office will be closed from December 23 through January 2. If you have any questions during that time, you can reach us by phone and email from December 27-29 and on January 2. We will be back to our regular office hours, 9am-5pm EST, on January 3.
I would also like to mention that during the winter break, our MBA students are hosting a number of informal meet-ups with prospective students around the world. Please register for one in your area!
For those of you still in the process of applying to one of our MIT Sloan programs, here’s a quick reminder of the upcoming deadlines:
Master of Finance Application Deadline: January 5, 2017 by 3:00pm EST
Master of Business Analytics Application Deadline: January 9, 2017 by 3:00pm EST
MBA Round 2 Application Deadline: January 17, 2017 by 3:00pm EST
Happy holidays and see you in 2017!
The application for our newest program, the Master of Business Analytics, is online. This innovative one-year program prepares students for careers in the rapidly growing data analytics industry. Applications are due Monday, January 9th, 3pm EST.
Details about the program and the application process can be found here, including the class profile of the inaugural class starting this September! We also have several events coming up, including online chats, where you can learn more. Feel free to contact us with any questions!
We have received many questions this summer about our new cover letter requirement for the MBA Application.
Similar to a cover letter for a job, our cover letter is an opportunity for you to make a case for yourself: why you should be given one of the roughly 400 seats in our MBA program? Tell us how your perspectives and experiences will contribute to our community, and why MIT Sloan is the right place for you! Format the letter as you would for a traditional job application, addressed to my colleague Rod Garcia, Senior Director of Admissions. The body of the letter itself, excluding address information and salutations, should be no more than 250 words.
Stay tuned – we will be sharing more information about our evaluation process soon. Good luck as you begin your applications, and as always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions!
Happy first Friday of Summer!

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!
I am excited to share with you the launch of MIT Sloan’s new, specialized masters program: Master of Business Analytics.

Combining a core curriculum, focused electives, and Action Learning opportunities, this program reflects MIT Sloan’s commitment to staying on the cutting edge of research.
Admission to the inaugural year of this program is available for a limited number of students. The application deadline is April 15th, 2016, and decisions will be released on May 16th, 2016. You can learn more about the admissions process and requirements here. We look forward to welcoming the first class of this innovative program to the MIT Sloan community!
