MIT Sloan and QUT Strategic Cooperation
In October 2019, MIT Sloan launched a collaboration with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Business School, its first with a university in Australia. The five-year agreement focuses on academic exchange, an innovative immersion program for QUT MBA and EMBA students, and enhancing QUT’s entrepreneurship program with access to MIT’s global entrepreneurial networks.
This collaboration builds on established connections made with the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship over the past three years when QUT Business School hosted the internationally recognized MIT Innovation and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp. The Trust Center and QUT Entrepreneurship will build on these existing bonds with a focus on accelerating the leading entrepreneurship program design at QUT. This will be accomplished through staff and student visits to share best practices and co-create content with the goal of developing programs utilizing a disciplined entrepreneurship framework to address entrepreneurial challenges in Queensland and Australia.
The MIT Sloan-QUT Business School agreement is, in part, a result of existing cooperation between the two business schools through the Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program (REAP), an MIT Sloan program that provides opportunities for communities around the world to engage with MIT in an evidence-based, practical approach to strengthening innovation-driven
