We have decades of experience designing global learning programs tailored for MIT students and are happy to share our expertise, from defining learning objectives to evaluating outcomes.

Thanks to our partnerships with leading companies, universities, non-profits, and government entities in 40+ countries, we can identify projects and learning opportunities for your students.

Our program managers are in the know about all of the latest administrative and logistical procedures around the world and can help you navigate the challenges of sending students abroad.

Student health and safety are paramount to creating a successful experience abroad. MISTI’s extensive health and safety training is available to all members of the community via our app (password misti), and our program managers can also provide country-specific one-on-one sessions.

MISTI’s cultural preparation is like no other in the world of education abroad. Each of our country programs offers extensive training on navigating cultures, workplace norms, and cross-cultural communication. All MIT students are invited to participate in this training.

If you need to get the word out about a global opportunity, MISTI can provide visibility via our lively social media channels, student newsletter, and global opportunities portal.
