Why do LGO students pursue their MBA after studying engineering and science for their bachelorâ€™s degree? MIT LGO allows students to dive deeper into the MIT engineering coursework while preparing students to enter diverse leadership positions in a wide variety of industries. 88% of LGO graduates changed their job function, usually taking on more responsibility. Many also change their industry. The MIT MBA and engineering combination gives graduates unique analytical abilities that create outstanding problem solvers.
