  • Study Tours

    Study Tours give MBA students the opportunity to explore the economic, political, and cultural contexts of business in regions around the world. Tours are proposed by students, who then partner with faculty and staff mentors to plan the tour content and logistics. 

    A student organizing team identifies a theme they are passionate about and designs a series of for credit classes and a 1-2 week trip in March, during SIP and Spring Break, to explore this in detail. Student participants have the opportunity to learn about the theme and experience specific challenges associated with it first-hand. In addition they meet, learn from, and exchange ideas with business and government leaders outside of the US. 

  • Treks

    MIT Sloan treks are a form of student-led and organized travel. They can take place at any time of the year, as long as they do not conflict with classes, and are not for class credit. Treks are organized and run by MIT Sloan clubs, and most focus on professional development based on an industry or geographic location. Planning a trek gives you the opportunity to test out your leadership skills, get an in-depth look at a particular industry or geography, and build contacts to help you in the future. If you are a current MIT Sloan student interested in organizing a trek, check here for step-by-step instructions on how to plan a trek.
