• MIT Sloan Latin America Office

    In 2013, MIT Sloan established its first physical presence outside the United States in Santiago, Chile. The mission of the MIT Sloan Latin America Office (MSLAO) is to develop and nurture meaningful activities throughout Latin America that benefit the region, the School, and the Institute, and support the creation and transfer of knowledge and the advancement of management education and practice. 

    From its location in the heart of Santiago’s thriving business district, the MSLAO is ideally positioned to promote MIT Sloan programs to potential students and facilitate enhanced research and corporate outreach in the area. It supports activities focused on energy and sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship, and productivity and growth. It also serves as a regional hub for MIT faculty, alumni, and visiting students. 

    For more information, please contact MSLAO director Lee Ullmann.
