  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

    One of the biggest benefits of studying at MIT is the chance to participate in the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), which enables MIT undergraduates to work directly with faculty on research—either an established faculty project or a project of the undergraduate's own design.

    What does a Course 15 UROP look like?

    At MIT Sloan, our research ranges from analyzing data on stock prices for reverse mergers, to creating a test instrument for measuring online collaboration, to studying consumer behavior in the fashion industry. UROPs allow undergraduates to advance faculty research, and the faculty, in turn bring, that knowledge into the classrooms, and the world.
