MBA students at the MIT Sloan School of Management are taking a little time to publish their own newsletter, 15. Three times a year, short articles describe student life, career dilemmas, and how to make the most of their time in course 15. You can take a dip into MBA life with these recent articles:
- Learn about the student take on the Sloan brand.
- Choice Fest ponders the many, many options facing the first year MBA student.
- “Ask Alfred” is a humorous look at grad student life, like putting the wrong company name on your job application or how to keep up with free-spending classmates.
Past articles tell stories, like this describing the launch of a company that prints photo books of Facebook content. “How you start a company during your MBA at MIT Sloan: Our story at Pixable.”

Curious about what life is like for MIT graduate students these days? Or maybe you’d like to connect with current grad students? You’ve got a few options.
You can get a taste of daily life via the MIT Grad Blog, a new outpost of musings and information hosted by the Graduate Students Council (GSC). Follow GSC Alex Hamilton Chan’s predictions on who will win the upcoming Nobel Prizes in economics or get his tips for the best food in Boston. Find out how research is like riding the Cyclone at Coney Island –“the highest of highs and the lowest of gut-wrenching, vomit-inducing, white-knuckled, heart-beating-in-my-throat lows. Or just browse through the Humor section.
The Graduate, a student magazine also hosted by GSC, offers a tad more in-depth focus, for example this article: “Need a Job? Cheer up you’re at MIT.” Read “Barfly” for tips on fabulous nightlife. You can also read Alumni Focus articles such as “Connecting the Dots.”
Want to add your voice? The Graduate is looking for alumni to write and to be interviewed. Interested? Contact the editor: Anusuya Das, a PhD Candidate in biological engineering.
