• Vale Institute of Technology

    The partnership between Vale Institute of Technology (ITV) in Brazil and MIT Sloan promotes joint research and academic activities focused on innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainable development. The partnership has its roots in an executive education program developed by MIT Sloan that trained nearly 500 Vale managers. Vale is the second-largest diversified mining company in the world.

    MIT Sloan faculty and students explore Brazil’s dynamic economy and culture, while ITV participants access MIT’s expertise in managing technological innovation, sustainability, and system dynamics. MIT, ITV, and other partner institutions host regular academic conferences on entrepreneurship, sustainable development, and related topics.
