Applying to MIT Bootcamps

Criteria

Admissions to the Bootcamp is highly selective. The most successful Bootcampers had the following qualities before attending that contributed to their success at the Bootcamp and beyond:
null

Capacity for Calculated Risk

Success happens when preparation meets opportunity. But seizing new opportunities comes with an inescapable amount of risk. We look for applicants who are confident and calculated risk takers, and can weigh when it makes sense to embark on a new venture, pivot, or start anew.
null

Focus on Community

At MIT we believe that the team is more important than the idea. Great teams make amazing companies and can turn average ideas into life-changing innovations. Ideal candidates will put the team above themselves, and have a strong track record of contributing to their community.
null

Open and Critical Thinking

Developing your venture will require collaboration and openness to new ideas. We look for individuals with an ability to combine critical thinking with an open mind.

 

null

Initiative with Follow-Through

Anyone can start a new venture, but what separates the thriving businesses from those that fail is follow-through. We looks for applicants that start new ventures, but will follow-through even when the going gets tough.

Process

Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will receive a decision at each round. Don’t wait. Show your commitment by applying early.

Tuition

The tuition includes all program costs and meals for the duration of the Bootcamp. Please note you will still be responsible for costs of travel and accommodation. Tuition is in USD.
