MIT Sloan Student Blog Archive

  • Thank you for viewing the MIT Sloan student blog archive. We have archived content from previous years so you can still enjoy them. If you are an author and your blog has been archived mistakenly than please email the Strategy & Planning Group at the MIT Sloan Office of Communications.

The MIT Sloan experience used to be one that was only seen by the students in the academic programs. Recent blog efforts has changed that and now prospective students, peers, and the general public can get an idea of what the students experience while obtaining their advanced degree. 

The following blog post was written last year by Rubén Lozano Aguilera regarding his experience in the Global Entrepreneurship Lab (G-Lab). Current MIT Sloan students are participating in their G-Lab trips for 2014; you can view their blog entries here


A New Argentina by Rubén Lozano Aguilera

While showing some of the analytical tools we created during our final presentation, one of our project’s sponsors interrupted saying in Spanish: “Esto es exactamente lo que necesitamos”—this is exactly what we need. More than excitement, I felt a sense of entitlement on her comment. She was looking directly towards the company’s CEO. The CEO, on the other hand, was quiet at that moment but his face expressions were clear—he understood the relevance and the urgency of the issue. Later during the presentation, the CEO asked a senior executive “Does this make sense to you?”—his response was clear: it was time to move forward and he was on-board to start planning the changes.
