Who is a Core Fellow?

Working in collaboration with the MIT Leadership Center and the Career Development and MBA Program Offices, the MBA Core Fellows are leaders and highly committed students who significantly influence building community at Sloan and serve as resources for first-year Sloanies transitioning to the diverse academic, intellectual, and social culture here. Core Fellows serve as accountability partners through the core experience, linking career education and the internship search and help to create an environment where both risks and collaborative ideas are valued methods by which to learn and improve.

How do Core Fellows contribute?

A Core Fellow contributes best as a mentor, liaison, and resource to their first-year students; regarding their career, academic and social priorities and obligations. They regularly check in with individual members and core team(s) to help support overall well-being. Core Fellows receive training and support from staff from the Leadership Center and CDO and MBA Program Offices.​
