Experience MIT Sloan
The MIT Sloan Visiting Fellows Program is a non-degree, customized course of study for individuals who wish to focus on specific topics in management. Upon completion of the program, each Visiting Fellow receives a certificate from MIT Sloan.Unlike a traditional degree program, there are no course requirements. Visiting Fellows come to MIT Sloan with the freedom to pursue their academic and professional goals. Those goals may be to develop skills in global entrepreneurship, to broaden their understanding of strategic innovation, or to explore international finance and capital markets. As a Visiting Fellow, you are free to explore what MIT Sloan has to offer.
Visiting Fellows take MIT Sloan courses with world-renowned faculty; collaborate, study, and network with other MIT students; and
participate in student clubs, conferences, and special seminars. In addition, Visiting Fellows have access to a wealth of cultural, social, and recreational activities, both on campus and in Cambridge and Boston.
Visiting Fellows enroll as full-time students for either one or two semesters. In consultation with an MIT Sloan faculty advisor, Visiting Fellows choose courses to meet their academic and professional goals.
Visiting Fellows may also participate in an independent study with a faculty member on a specific topic of their interest. They may take courses throughout MIT and enjoy cross-registration privileges at Harvard University. Visiting Fellows take between 36 and 54 credit units, or about four to six courses, per semester.
The MIT Sloan Visiting Fellows Program is available in the following terms:
Spring: Begins early February through mid-May.
Fall: Begins early September through mid-December.
