“One of MIT Sloan’s strengths is that it combines research with teaching practices. It truly merges theory and practice — a feat that is possible due to its top-notch research faculty and the faculty’s interest in putting their ideas to work.”

Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO

In 2009, MIT Sloan and the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO launched a series of joint programs aimed at strengthening SKOLKOVO’s international capacity in business and management education and exposing MIT Sloan faculty and students to a new range of global developments and challenges.

The collaboration, which signified Russia’s first full-time MBA program at SKOLKOVO’s state-of-the-art campus outside of Moscow, included classes and other training for SKOLKOVO MBA and EMBA students at MIT Sloan and lectures by MIT Sloan faculty at SKOLKOVO. MIT Sloan also shared its experience in various aspects of academic administration (marketing, student services, admissions, career development) and in areas related to structuring and running research programs. 

The MIT Sloan Action Learning program provides students with an opportunity to participate in project-based learning (or "labs") that connect their Sloan classroom work and their previous work experience with a real world management challenge that is important to companies.
