The Visiting Fellows Program is an opportunity for professional specialization on a full–time basis for one or two semesters. In consultation with a faculty advisor, Visiting Fellows design a course of study to meet his/her academic and professional goals.

Visiting Fellows enroll in MIT Sloan elective courses and may also engage in an independent study with a faculty member on a specific topic of interest. As registered full-time special graduate students, Visiting Fellows may take courses throughout MIT and enjoy cross-registration privileges at Harvard University. Visiting Fellows take between 36 and 54 credits/units per semester, which is typically around 4–6 courses.

Individuals interested in applying should review MIT Sloan’s course offerings to find specific elective courses that match their interests.
