Rod Garcia, assistant dean of admissions at MIT Sloan, said:
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.
Assistant Dean of Admissions Dawna Levenson noted that 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.
Levenson pointed out that MIT is 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 community with their intellectual abilities, drive and experiences.
The application fee is waived for all 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.
