Student Life

Sloan students are a select and diverse group that come from the United States and abroad. Each year, the program admits approximately 35 incoming students. Many begin the program with professional experience in business or in health care. About 20% of our students hold undergraduate degrees in business or healthcare management, nearly 30% have degrees in the sciences, another 45% hold undergraduate degrees in the social sciences and 5% have other degrees (eg. biotechnology and international studies). Some students enter the program with masters degrees. 63% of Sloan students are women. 20% are self-report non-white race/ethnicity. 17% are international. We value our students’ rich and diverse academic and experiential backgrounds and their ability to come together to forge a strong sense of community – our “Sloan Family.”
