“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.”
Allied for impact
MIT Sloan collaborates in a variety of ways with a range of organizations outside the United States—from schools and research centers to private foundations, major corporations, and start-ups. Although each collaboration differs, all serve to further MIT Sloan’s goal of building a global network of management educators, researchers, and practitioners dedicated to ethical and innovative leadership that improves the world.

- Action Learning Labs – Students from MIT Sloan can participate in a variety of labs including China Lab and India Lab, two examples of globally-focused Action Learning Labs orchestrated by MIT.
- China Center for Financial Research (CCFR) – The CCFR is a collaboration between MIT Sloan and Tsinghua University that promotes research on China’s financial system and information sharing through conferences and workshops.
- Epoch Foundation – The longstanding relationship between MIT Sloan and the Taiwan-based Epoch Foundation focuses mainly on executive education programs and joint conferences.
- MIT Sloan-Yunnan University Women’s Entrepreneur Program – MIT Sloan developed and continues to support the Women’s Entrepreneur Program at Yunnan University in Kunming, China, a management training initiative that is part of Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Women Project.
“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.”
