“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.”
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.
"I'm really appreciative of the opportunities and learnings offered by the international program, which I firmly believe will produce longer term impact for our partnership with MIT Sloan and is truly benefiting our future teaching and research work back in China."
