MIT Sloan School of Management recently released their deadlines and essay prompts for the 2016-17 MBA admissions season.
There are some big changes this year! Instead of a mandatory essay, applicants will be required to submit a cover letter along with their resume (as usual, limited to one page). If you want to include more information, Sloan will continue to offer their optional open-ended prompt that will allow you to use a variety of formats that will help them to consider your candidacy. We strongly recommend reviewing your application and using the optional question to provide more context on your background that you believe will be helpful.
MIT Sloan School of Management released their deadlines and essay prompts for the 2015-2016 MBA admissions season last week. There are several changes that you’ll want to take note of for Sloan this year. They will have three rounds rather than two (if you’re applying first round, your deadline will be in September – see below). The school has reduced the essay requirement for all applicants, with a single required essay question. If you want to share more information, Sloan will continue to offer an optional essay question that will allow you to share additional information that will help them to consider your candidacy. If you are invited to interview, you’ll be asked to write a response to a second question.
Here are our thoughts on Sloan’s essay questions for the 2014-15 MBA application cycle.
