“To overcome the economic challenges we face, we need a new generation of financial industry leaders, policymakers, and regulators who have a deep understanding of how technology drives the financial system. At MIT Sloan, I'm surrounded by an exceptionally smart group of colleagues committed to training this new generation, and by talented, passionate students eager to make a difference.”
In Spring of 2014 GlobalHealth Lab paired eleven faculty-mentored teams of MBA and other MIT graduated students with innovative enterprises on the front lines of health care delivery in South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, India, and Bangladesh.
To tackle challenges identified by each partner, the course is built around customized projects in strategy, operations, marketing, and technology adoption. Students work on campus before and after an intensive on-site collaboration in the second half of March.
