“We’ve always made a big effort to be interdisciplinary and to be open to a variety of perspectives, but also to go beyond being open to them, to want to bring them in, because it makes for a richer environment.”
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."
