He would get the MBA and a MS in Engineering (discipline of his choice, i.e. mechanical, electrical, systems, etc)

BIG difference between Allston and East Cambridge.

without a doubt, he should go to HBS, it's a much better MBA program than MIT's, even aside from the alumni network and connections he will make there, which are priceless

if he wants to work in high tech, he should then enroll in an M.S. program at Stanford after graduation if he thnks he still needs the skills or credential

those two together would be ideal, rather than the dual degree from MIT

the two summers in between starting and first/second years, he should come out to CA and work in Silicon Valley at any one the Paypal mafia start-up's and get to know the players and interview at Stanford for the MS program while he's out here

p.s. what was the last successful company started by an MIT alum in the last 10 years??? I can't name one either

Seems like MIT would be a no-brainer if he wants to use the engineering...

Science based: MIT
Finance or Management based: HBS

This sounds like a happy problem to have.

Do HBS and Sloan offer a collaborative MBA/Engineering program? For example, Harvard and MIT offer a joint MD/PhD program.

I don't even see how this would be a question. He's thinking of NOT going to HBS even though he was accepted? The only thing one could possibly choose above that is Wharton.

Why Wharton?
I've heard of people choosing GSB over HBS, but I don't think I've ever seen Wharton. For general business-y purposes, at least--maybe if one gets into real complicated financial stuff, but i have no idea in that arena.

Past MIT Companies 1. Gillete 2. Raytheon 3. Digital Equipment (DEC) 4. 3Com 5. Math Works Recent MIT Companies 1. A123 2. Akamai 3. Brontes 4. iRobot 5. Visible Measures 6. Zipcar 7. Smart Cells 8. Semprus Biosciences 9. Hubspot
All of the above it quoted, and by-the-by, these are companies started while at MIT. Dunno the full list for companies started by alums but might be found here (Digital Shingle Project

I think west coast school (UC Berkeley/Stanford) still has the big tech. success over MIT (at least in terms of what people have heard).

MIT is a lot more mathematical than Harvad, also if you want to be in finance, but much more qunat. oriented, then MIT is a good choice as well.
