Sloan Entrepreneurs for International Development together with Sloan Career Development Office provide a variety of resources and networks to students interested in careers in international development. We offer career panels featuring current students and seasoned professionals, speaker series, networking events, as well as career visits to social enterprises, international organizations, non-profits, financial institutions, and other organizations in the development field.
Career paths in international development span a variety of industries and functional roles. To navigate this diverse pool of opportunities, Career Development Office together with the students conduct a series of lunch seminars and career panels early in the fall semester. The discussions focus on the skill sets, ways and the timing to get involved. Students are exposed to a variety of career resources online, and encouraged to forge relationships with alumni who are already pursue careers in the field.
Over the past decade, Sloan has seen a growing number of students interested in career paths that strive to combine social value and business practice. Our alumni work in such a diverse set of organizations as United Nations, World Bank, Global Policy Institute, Bridgespan Group, Asian Development Bank, as well as emerging group of investment and venture companies focused on social sector.

Sloan financially supports the students interested in non-traditional career paths by offering Sloan Social Impact Fellowship [INSERT LINK] In 2010, 17 students chose to spend their summer working on social impact projects and were supported through the programs.
