“Another plus is the international breadth of its student body. The students share their direct experiences and this greatly contributes to our understanding of various economic issues.”

Opportunities range from collaborative research initiatives with other schools and labs to consulting projects for companies and government agencies. The office also sponsors faculty participation in regional conferences.
  • MIT Sloan student visits – The office supports MIT Sloan student visits to the region for participation in action learning labs, such as Sustainable Business Lab (S-Lab) and Global Entrepreneurship Lab (G-Lab), and also works to identify other action learning opportunities for students.

"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."

- David Capodilupo, Executive Director, MIT Sloan Office of International Programs
