“At MIT Sloan, you will find faculty engaging in many different kinds of research and multiple forms of pedagogy that, taken together, reflect the value of a wide range of perspectives, skills, and expertise in organizations.”
Global partners in management education
MIT Sloan's current partner programs with educational and research institutions in Brazil, China, India, Portugal, and Turkey represent formal, collaborative relationships geared toward expanding international learning opportunities for students, faculty, and administrators. Each of these resource-intensive programs involves customized activities based on the particular strengths and goals of the partner institution and MIT Sloan.
Over-arching objectives for MIT Sloan partner programs include:
Multicultural exposure – Doing business today means doing business with companies and colleagues around the world. To succeed, students must understand cultural context and management practices in countries other than their own. MIT Sloan’s international partner programs promote multicultural exposure and well-rounded worldviews.
Regional insights – The global business landscape is driven by established and major emerging economies. MIT Sloan’s partner programs provide insight into both:
- International partner institutions gain a greater understanding of U.S.-based companies, with a particular focus on the entrepreneurial sector; and
- MIT Sloan gains in-depth exposure to key regions of economic development across the globe.
Global networking – Students, faculty, and administrators from MIT Sloan and international partner institutions develop relationships that lead to valuable networking opportunities and collaborations in the working world and research arena.
"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."
