MIT Sloan Latin America Office
In 2013, MIT Sloan established its first physical presence outside the United States in Chile. From its location in the heart of Santiago’s thriving business district, the MSLAO is ideally positioned to promote MIT Sloan programs to potential students and facilitate enhanced research and corporate outreach in the area. MSLAO supports activities focused on energy and sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship, and productivity and growth. It also serves as a regional hub for MIT faculty, alumni, and visiting students. For more information, please contact MSLAO director Horacio Caperan.
