SDM Information Nights

The next SDM Information Night will be on Tuesday, 27 April from 6:00pm-9:30pm
MIT Sloan Faculty Club - MIT Sloan Building E52. I will be on the panel to answer questions.

From the questions I am asked at past SDM Information Nights, I know prospective students find the old posts from 1995 on Yoav Shapira (SDM'05) Blog enlightening. However, the curriculum had since changed since 1995. Besides, the basic SDM curriculum does not reflect the many electives from MIT, MIT Sloan, and Harvard Business School that I have had the chance to take. As you can see, I have been busy in the past year and a half!
