To successfully manage international teams, you’ll need a good dose of cultural sensitivity – which is best earned when traveling and working abroad.
Through our partnership with MIT Sloan, The Lisbon MBA International gives you the chance to discover the culture and business practices of the fast-paced northeast of the United States.
As a student in The Lisbon MBA International program, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in courses and campus life at the MIT Sloan School of Management in Boston for four weeks during the month of June in the summer. You will have access to MIT’s professors, prolific libraries and learning centers, while pursuing courses specifically focused on global issues in management:
- Global Markets and Strategy
- Managing Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Global Compliance and Ethical Issues
Welcome to Boston
Living in Boston is the best way to learn about the culture of the USA – one of the world’s most important markets. During your time at MIT, you’ll work with students and faculty based in Boston – further extending your network of friendships and professional relationships. As a part of your immersion period, you will visit several Boston based companies and learn about their back-stories and how they were able to achieve success.
In addition, Boston is the ideal student town: with over 20 other universities based in the city, entertainment and night-life options are limitless. Take a Duck Tour to explore Boston’s historical landmarks both on and off the waterfront, learn how to sail on the Charles River, check out the boutiques in Boston’s south end or take a breather from classes at the Liberty Hotel, once known as Charles Street Jail and now a nighttime destination for locals and visitors. Boston has an extensive public transportation system, making traveling throughout the city easy for students.
