Throughout classes at Sloan, faculty invite alumni, industry leaders, and outside speakers to talk with students about their career and professional journeys. These discussions can focus on a number of topics but hearing perspectives from others helps students clarify their own sense of purpose. 


  • Identify a topic for discussion for a panel of speakers to explore and individuals who may be able to offer diverse perspectives
  • Offer students an opportunity to submit questions in advance and during the program, if appropriate


Students share that hearing from alumni and outside voices can help them think about what they prioritize while they’re at MIT
