"We have some demanding technical courses, but also a series of special seminars with very experienced practitioners who come in to run it with them — for instance, an experienced venture capital manager or a former CEO of a money management firm."

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.

For more information and to apply, visit the Visiting Fellows website.

"The International Programs at Sloan provides us the best platform for all the IFFs to establish connections and seek collaborations with the leading professors and scholars at Sloan and I've been greatly enjoying my work so far here at Sloan. It's meeting my every expectation for my work program here."

- Xie Xiaoyan, IFF Fudan University, Fall '13
