MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) is MIT’s flagship international education program. Each year, over 850 MIT undergraduate and graduate students intern, teach, research, and collaborate in more than 19 countries around the world.
MISTI's pioneering internship program matches MIT students with projects in leading international companies and labs. Through MISTI's teaching programs, students learn how to communicate with international peers by teaching STEM and entrepreneurship in foreign high schools and universities. To prepare for their experiences abroad, MISTI students complete coursework in the language, culture, history, and politics of their host country. Students also participate in a series of location-specific Preparation & Training modules covering topics such as cross-cultural communication, current events, technology, and innovation in the host country, navigating the workplace, logistics, and safety.
