Dean Schmittlein on Making the Most Out of Grad School

Dean David Schmittlein

From Forbes

In this interview, he talks about the composition of his student body at Sloan, the types of skills and experiences his students gain, how Sloan uses social media, and more.

How many of your students have jobs while attending Sloan and how many go full-time? What are the pros and cons?

MIT Sloan has an Executive MBA program for more senior executives, having about 15 years experience, in which they retain their managerial position and come to MIT about once a month for two years. But this is a program with only 120 participants. Our MBA program in which participants have on average about five years experience, graduates 400 people a year and is full-time. We also have a Master of Finance program, with 120 graduates per year, that anticipates 0-4 years experience and is full-time. Of course some of our full time students have other activities, including entrepreneurial ventures, during their time at MIT.
