Mind Mapping MIT Sloan - Visualizing the MBA Program's Curriculum, Courses, Clubs and Culture

Mind Mapping MIT Sloan - Visualizing the MBA Program's Curriculum, Courses, Clubs and Culture

For those of you that saw my Columbia Business School mind map post from earlier this week, I wanted to also simplify MIT Sloan's retro website for any applicants currently working on their Sloan MBA essays and application.  The following MIT Sloan mind map should quickly give you a lay of the land.  Hopefully this will allow you to see where you fit into Sloan's clubs, curriculum and student culture.  

 If you find it useful, feel free to download a copy of this mind map or create your own online copy and edit as you please.

MIT Sloan's Supplemental Essay - Mandatory or Optional?

MIT Sloan's Supplemental Essay - Mandatory or Optional?

Our clients are reporting to us that during their visits to MIT a number of admissions committee members are "strongly encouraging" applicants to submit Sloan's Supplemental (Optional) essay.  This is advice that should definitely be considered, but only if you really have something to say - not just a rehash of prior content or an ill-advised attempt at a goals statement.  At a high-level, the supplemental essay is a test of your ability to deal with ambiguity.  So consider this a de facto requirement, but (again) only if you have a different dimension of your character to bring to the table.  If you can pass that sniff test - read on.
