    Hiring international students for U.S.-based positions

    MIT Sloan has a long and rich tradition as a global school of management, with more than one-third of our students coming from outside the United States. The skills and perspectives of these students make them particularly valuable in the global business environment.

    Full-time employment

    An H-1B visa from the U.S. Customs & Immigration Service allows for three years of professional employment and may be extended for an additional three years. Employer and employee petition together for the visa.

    Summer internships 

    Most international MIT Sloan students with F-1 visas are eligible to participate in a Department of Homeland Security approved educational program called Curricular Practical Training. Curricular Practical Training authorizes international students to work legally in the U.S. during the summer between their two full years of study. The work authorization is provided by MIT and the Department of Homeland Security prior to the student starting work. On the first day of employment, the student will already have all the necessary documentation to legally complete the I-9 form and begin work for your company. This work authorization requires no pre- or post-work administration on the part of the employer: no paperwork, no pre-qualification, and no fees.
