MIT Sloan Global Programs - Academics in Action
Number of global locations GP interacts with
Global Programs (GP) directs international and region-focused programs, offices, and strategic collaborations designed to expand and deepen MIT Sloan's mission and impact around the world. We facilitate dynamic new methods of engagement between MIT faculty, students, and alumni and organizations, communities, and innovators to foster practical strategies and prepare principled leaders to tackle urgent global challenges.
GP's model is bi-directional; we operate offices and programming across the globe, and convene and educate on our exceptional campus. Our "action academics" approach to advancing and harnessing MIT Sloan evidence-based research helps ensure that ideas are made to matter.
