The 45-50 students who make up each MIT LGO class come with diverse career backgrounds, but they all share a passion for engineering and operations. The personal qualities of the students and the experiences they bring add significantly to the rich learning environment that is MIT LGO.
We look for students who bring a strong academic background in engineering, math or science; who have significant full-time post-undergraduate work experience (preferably three years or more); who have demonstrated leadership in or outside of work; and who want to become innovative leaders in manufacturing and operations.
Students say the best way to determine if MIT LGO is the right fit is by visiting the program, where you can meet and interact with students, attend engineering and management classes, and have a first-hand look at what it's like to be an LGO. The LGO Ambassador Program arranges visits during the fall, and our annual Ambassador Day and Information Evening provide an opportunity to learn more about the program and to interact with students, faculty, alumni and staff.
The application deadline is December 15, 2015. The online application will be available through MIT Sloan in early July. The application will be available through the School of Engineering by September.
