“In one class I teach, I introduce a new economic concept each class in the context of a different country. In almost every case, we have one or more students in class who come from or have worked in these countries.”

The partner program between the Indian School of Business and MIT Sloan focuses on developing leadership talent for India’s infrastructure and manufacturing industries. Program activities include co-designing course curricula and action learning projects for two of ISB’s institutes: the Munjal Global Manufacturing Institute and the Punj Lloyd Institute of Physical Infrastructure Management. In turn, ISB provides opportunities for MIT Sloan faculty and students to develop working relationships in India and firsthand insight into the country’s rapidly growing economy.

The partnership engages both faculty from MIT Sloan and the MIT School of Engineering, enhancing opportunities for cross-institute collaboration and innovation. MIT and ISB will strengthen this relationship by pursuing joint research projects and student and faculty exchange programs.

"I have followed some courses here to see how the faculty teach. I am looking for fresh stuff. We are a young school. We are still shaping our future. It’s useful to know how MIT Sloan does things and why. MIT is unique.”
