“Getting an education from MIT is like taking a drink from a fire hose.”

Jerome B. Wiesner

Offices

Reaching out around the world

The Office of International Programs (OIP) initiates, coordinates, and supports MIT Sloan’s international learning partnerships and collaborations. It also serves as a connection point for members of the MIT Sloan community who are looking for global engagement opportunities; and for students, faculty, and institutions from outside the United States looking to engage with MIT Sloan.

The OIP is located on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A second office, the MIT Sloan Latin America Office (MSLAO), is located in Santiago, Chile. The MSLAO focuses specifically on developing and supporting the school’s engagement with Latin America.

 

“Chinese culture has many rules and behavior. The culture here is more relaxed. Students have more freedom. Freedom encourages more creation. Professors put out questions with no answers, ask students to think. It’s good to make students think, learn from each other. I will teach students with more freedom.”
