CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The MIT Sloan School of Management recently announced the MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission, designed for ambitious and forward-thinking college seniors interested in securing a seat in a future MBA class. Students accepted for MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission will work two to five years after graduating from college before matriculating into the full-time MIT Sloan MBA Program.
"MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission provides an exciting opportunity for undergraduate seniors to set a future path for themselves at MIT Sloan. There is increasing market demand for this type of early admission among MIT undergraduate students and top students around the world. This is a very positive addition to our offerings," says Rod Garcia, assistant dean of admissions at MIT Sloan.
Assistant Dean of Admissions Dawna Levenson agrees. "This is a wonderful new option for prospective students who want to proactively manage their future and make a difference. These are students who have already demonstrated the potential to be principled and innovative leaders who will make a positive impact on the world."
She notes that MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission is a valuable recruiting tool for MIT Sloan, as several other top business schools offer similar admission options. "We want to increase MIT representation in our own MBA program, and recruit qualified college seniors from other colleges to MIT Sloan as early as possible."
MIT Sloan senior Elena Alberti says, "As I was finishing my undergraduate experience, I realized that applying to Sloan through MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission was an obvious next step. I have interacted with many MBAs at Sloan and they all have a wealth of different backgrounds that they use to create a formative experience for their fellow classmates. I wanted to be able to learn from these backgrounds and experiences, so that I can grow further."
The MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission is currently open to enrolled students who will complete their bachelor's or first degree by July 2019 and plan to work full-time for two to five years after graduation. The application deadline is Monday, April 8, 2019. Applicants will be notified of decisions on Wednesday, May 8, 2019.
"We're looking for students who have demonstrated leadership and an impact on their community, whether it is in the classroom, clubs, athletics, or internships. Thriving in a collaborative team environment, these are students from a diversity of majors who will enhance the MIT Sloan community with their intellectual abilities, drive and experiences," says Levenson, noting that the application fee is waived for all MIT Sloan MBA Early Admission applicants.
To apply, students must submit a cover letter, resume, video statement, academic transcripts, two letters of recommendation, and test scores. However, the GMAT/GRE is not required for current MIT students who meet the eligibility requirements. Interviews are required and will be scheduled by invitation only after an initial evaluation of a complete application.
To learn more, prospective applicants are invited to a Virtual Information Session on Friday, January 25, 2019 at 1:00pm ET – 2:00pm ET. Representatives from the MBA Admissions team will discuss what makes MIT Sloan distinctive, the MBA Program, and the application process.
