Those goals may be to develop skills in global entrepreneurship, to broaden their understanding of strategic innovation, or to explore international finance and capital markets. As a Visiting Fellow, you are free to explore what MIT Sloan has to offer. Applications for spring 2021 are now closed. Applications for Fall 2021 will be accepted betwen November 1, 2020 and April 1, 2021.

In addition, Visiting Fellows have access to a wealth of cultural, social, and recreational activities, both on campus and in Cambridge and Boston.
