What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

MIT offers every type of class imaginable, including grad classes - to us undergrads. The professors here are top notch, ranging from Nobel laureates to award-winning economists - I was amazed that they actually teach undergrads and dedicate so much time to answering our questions after class. Compared to other business programs, MIT lets us take classes from any department - the programming and math classes have been immensely helpful for my startup.
