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.
"At home I play a different role. I am the instructor. Here I am a student. I sit in the professors’ classrooms. Sloan has very participant-centered learning. Students learn from each other. We play different roles, keep relationships with each other. I know what the students really care about. It has been an interesting experience."
