“We’ve always made a big effort to be interdisciplinary and to be open to a variety of perspectives, but also to go beyond being open to them, to want to bring them in, because it makes for a richer environment.”

George Maverick Bunker Professor of Management

Indian School of Business

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.

"IFF program by MIT Sloan is very helpful to me as a newman in USA. The program gives me a perfect living and working condition, to have enough time to enjoy the teaching and researching programs by MIT professors".
