Veterans

Welcome to the Veterans Community

MIT Sloan has a strong and active community of veterans. Across the portfolio of programs – including MBA, MFin, SFMBA, EMBA, and alumni – the community includes military veterans at every stage of their careers. Veterans are highly valued graduates with experience and skills that are hard to match. The resources here will help you enter the job search with confidence and connections.

We also encourage you to join the MIT Sloan Veterans Association, which welcomes veterans of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces as well as veterans of foreign militaries.
