“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.”
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.
MIT Sloan’s international collaborations include the following:
- 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.
"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."
