Expand your reach across continents.
The MIT Sloan Fellows global network is anchored by four vibrant alumni groups—your own MIT Sloan Fellows class, the Society of Sloan Fellows of MIT, the MIT Sloan School of Management, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology—as well as the faculty, government, and corporate leaders you meet during your year at the Institute. The sum total of these connections is one of the most powerful professional networks in the business universe.
Have an executive team issue you don’t want to discuss with anyone in your organization? Want to learn how other entrepreneurs solved a particular venture capital dilemma? Need advice about entering the marketplace in Shanghai, São Paulo, or Tel Aviv?
You might not know how to approach these challenges, but chances are that someone in your MIT network will. And if they don’t, they can put you in touch with someone from their own network who does. Alumni inevitably say that this extensive, international support system is one of the most valuable takeaways of the MIT Sloan Fellows Program.
During your MIT Sloan Fellows year, the intense teamwork and the spirit of shared accomplishment create enduring bonds and a close-knit team of classmates who serve as advisors you can call on for advice, contacts, and support for the rest of your life. Your network will span more than two dozen continents and professions, giving you a regional or industry expert to turn to whenever you need one.
As Amy Gowder Graban, SF ’10, observed, “Working so intensely with classmates from around the world day in and day out meant that, by year’s end, their experiences became my experiences.”
Now, if I come up against a challenge in any aspect of my work, I can call upon a team of experts in 26 countries.Iris Bombelyn, SF ’09
