Study Abroad

MIT’s Study Abroad programs are equipping students to innovate and lead in today’s global economy.

The act of immersing themselves in a new country and a new academic environment provides them with invaluable experience in adapting to differing values, work styles, and viewpoints.

Through a wide range of award-winning global education options, students are gaining personal and professional experience with diverse economic, social, and political systems—and developing the sensitivity, skills, and confidence to compete on an international level.
