“As for the faculty, you'll quickly find that your professors – whether Nobel laureates or past presidents of the American Finance Association – are as passionate about teaching as you are about learning from them. MIT Sloan finance professors see you as their partners in shaping the future of finance.”

Leonid Kogan

Partner Programs

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.
