“One of my favorite things about teaching at MIT Sloan is the diversity and high quality of students. They are eager to learn new things, they think independently, and they're willing to tackle difficult issues.”
Relationship-building on a global scale
Global engagement is part of MIT Sloan’s DNA. Over the course of eight decades, the School has established deep connections with universities and other organizations in more than a dozen countries. Current activities include:
- Partner programs with academic and research institutions in China, Turkey, Brazil, Portugal, and India
- On-campus programs that bring international faculty and students to MIT Sloan
- Collaborations with various organizations outside the United States
In 2013, the School opened the MIT Sloan Latin America Office. Based in Santiago, Chile, this first international office provides a platform for its expanding collaboration throughout the Latin American region.
"MIT Sloan has a needs-blind admissions policy so our goal is to accept the best students in Latin America and around the world without consideration of his or her economic situation. Once a student is admitted then it is our goal to craft a financial package which will meet each students needs through guaranteed loans, private loans, scholarships and opportunities to be teaching or research assistants for MIT professors."
