When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Student activities at MIT Sloan are loosely overseen by the Sloan Student Senate, an elected group of approximately 48 students (24 per class year) that works with the business school’s administration to improve the program and the school, in addition to organizing many of the activities on campus. The group is divided into formal subcommittees: Academic, Activities, Admissions, Alumni Relations, Communication, Facilities and Information Technology. Informal committees usually form within the Sloan Student Senate each year on topics from professional standards to career development, depending on student interest.
