Entertainment and Media
MIT Sloan students pursue a variety of careers within the media and entertainment ecosystem, in particular those that leverage their keen talents in analytics, technology, and finance.
Sample companies who hired MIT Sloan graduates:
NBC Universal, The Walt Disney Company, MGM Resorts, Spotify, Epic Games, Riot Games, SeatGeek, and StubHub
Sports analytics is a key area of interest for MIT Sloan students, who often pursue the most innovative companies and technologies in this industry.
MIT Sloan students organize the popular Sports Analytics Conference that attracts leading speakers and typically sells out of tickets well before the event date.
MIT Sloan graduates also work at leading sports product companies, including Nike and Under Armour.
