According to MIT’s website, the Sloan School of Management MBA Early Admission program is now accepting applications from enrolled students who will complete their bachelor’s or first degree by July 2019. Applicants who are admitted to the program are required to work for 2-5 years after graduating college before attending Sloan.
MIT is the latest school to offer early admissions, joining, among others, Harvard Business School, Stanford GSB, Yale SOM, UVA Darden, Columbia Business School, and UPenn Wharton.
Sloan’s Assistant Dean of Admissions, Dawna Levenson, sees this as a positive move both for incoming students and as a recruiting tool for MIT Sloan. “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…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.” She also noted that the application fee is waived for all MIT Sloan Early Admission applicants.
Interested students must submit their applications by Monday, April 8, 2019 at 3:00 pm EST. They will be notified of the admissions committee’s decision via their online application on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, and must reply to their offers by Sunday, June 1, 2019.
A complete 2019 MIT application will be comprised of the following components:
- Cover letter (300 words)
- Video statement (60 seconds)
- Academic transcripts
- 2 letters of recommendation (1 must be from a professor)
- Additional information
- Test scores (not required for current MIT students who meet the eligibility requirements)
- Interviews (a required step which will be scheduled by invitation only, after the completed application has been evaluated)
There will be a Virtual Information Session on Friday, January 25, 2019 from 1:00-2:00 pm ET. Prospective applicants will hear members of the MBA admission team discuss what makes MIT Sloan stand out, more about the MBA program, and how to apply.
