“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.”
Immersion in the MIT Sloan ecosystem
MIT Sloan offers specialized, on-campus programs for students and faculty from MIT Sloan’s international partner institutions and other cooperating schools. These programs serve as a unique opportunity for students and faculty from outside the United States to live in Cambridge and immerse themselves in the MIT Sloan ecosystem. Program activities range from classes and one-to-one meetings with MIT Sloan faculty hosts to events at campus research hubs, such as the MIT Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation and the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship. Visiting faculty and students also have access to numerous social and cultural activities, both on campus and throughout Cambridge and Boston.
On-campus programs include:
- International Faculty Fellows – Faculty from collaborating institutions outside the United States can spend a semester at MIT Sloan to pursue their teaching and research development goals as International Faculty Fellows.
- Master of Science in Management Studies (MSMS) – The MSMS program gives students who have completed or are pursuing their MBA degree outside the United States the opportunity to study at MIT Sloan for one year to earn a master’s degree in management studies.
- Visiting Fellows – The Visiting Fellows Program is a non-degree, customizable program for working professionals and special graduate students who wish to pursue advanced studies in a particular area of management.
"Three things impress me the most here at MIT: energy, diversity, and creativity. As an IFF, I am so fortunate to be here and to learn from the "masters" of graduate education. Everyone here is so generous that they share with us their experiences and expertise. It is truly an eye-opening and mind-blowing adventure which I will remember forever."
