“Rather than produce a ‘cookie-cutter’ replica of MIT Sloan, the MIT-China Management Education Project encourages Chinese management faculty to develop MIT Sloan’s knowledge base responsively to local context and opportunity.”

Susan Hockfield
Former MIT President (2004-2012)

Visiting Fellows

The Visiting Fellows program is a unique opportunity for working professionals and special graduate students to pursue full-time, advanced studies at MIT Sloan for one or two semesters. In collaboration with an MIT Sloan faculty advisor, Visiting Fellows design a customized program of study based on their academic interests and professional goals. They choose from a wide range of MIT Sloan elective courses as well as select courses at other MIT schools and Harvard University. Upon completion of their program, they receive a certificate from MIT Sloan.

Most Visiting Fellows are mid-to senior-level managers from outside the U.S. who come to MIT Sloan through company sponsorship. Others are special graduate students from non-U.S. business schools who want to increase their international exposure and knowledge of U.S.-based companies while working toward their degree. All Visiting Fellows generally have one or more university degrees and several years of work experience.

“A main benefit here was the teaching seminars. I found mistakes in my teaching that I am trying to correct. We learned a lot about how to control our breathing, move around the room, look at different people when you ask questions, how to position answers. You get to see yourself in a different light. I don’t think you can learn this sort of thing online.”
