“As for the faculty, you'll quickly find that your professors – whether Nobel laureates or past presidents of the American Finance Association – are as passionate about teaching as you are about learning from them. MIT Sloan finance professors see you as their partners in shaping the future of finance.”
Management innovation without boundaries
MIT Sloan’s international activities reflect the school’s dual emphasis on learning by doing and innovation through collaboration. Activities range from formal partner programs with academic and research institutions in key regions around the world to conferences, project labs, and other ventures that facilitate cross-cultural exposure and idea sharing.
A two-way learning approach
MIT Sloan’s global network encompasses universities, corporations, private foundations, NGOs, alumni, and friends. Interactions with and among these groups are inherently collaborative and based on a two-way, mutually beneficial approach to learning:
- Members of the MIT Sloan community gain exposure to major emerging economies and opportunities to work with culturally diverse individuals and organizations.
- International collaborators gain access to the MIT Sloan ecosystem and uncommon insight into U.S. companies and management practices.
Connecting across MIT
MIT Sloan works to identify and promote global engagement opportunities that involve other schools and centers within MIT. Cross-Institute collaborations include:
- MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI)
- Industrial Liaison Program (ILP)
- China Leaders for Global Operations (CLGO)
“A main benefit here was the teaching seminars. I found mistakes in my teaching that I am trying to correct. We learned a lot about how to control our breathing, move around the room, look at different people when you ask questions, how to position answers. You get to see yourself in a different light. I don’t think you can learn this sort of thing online.”
