Partnerships that yield results

Action Learning teams work on the most pressing and critical problems that host companies are facing—and they work very hard to fix them. Over the past decade, MIT Sloan Action Learning teams have worked on more than 400 projects in 48 countries. While the specific companies and countries may differ, one common thread runs across all Action Learning teams—they get results that companies use to fix their problems and prepare their businesses for future challenges.

The passion and purpose with which student teams approach their company projects have impressed managers and executives across the globe—and often result in companies becoming repeat customers. For optimal project results, host companies should plan for their CEO and other senior managers to be available to devote focused time and energy on the project with the team, especially when the team is on site.

While there is no fee for engaging an Action Learning team for most of our programs, companies are typically responsible for students' coach round-trip travel from Boston and for providing adequate, safe, and convenient lodging while they are in country. As Action Learning program structures vary widely in travel duration, team size and target countries, an estimated budget number is not meaningful.

If you are interested in becoming a host company for an Action Learning Lab, please contact Shari Loessberg (Senior Lecturer, Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management) with any questions or ideas. We look forward to partnering with you.
