Engineering operations career development

A career launching pad

Students enter MIT LGO with engineering backgrounds, significant work experience and demonstrated leadership potential. They leave with a skill set highly sought after by top operations-based companies around the world, as well as access to an extensive network of alumni with roles ranging from senior vice president at Amazon to vice president and general manager at Boeing.

The result? Ninety-six percent of the 2013 LGO class was hired even before they graduated from MIT, with an average starting salary of $121,000.

LGO partner companies are frequent employers of LGO graduates because of the investment they make in the program and the fellowships they provide for students. LGO partners have an exclusive recruiting week at LGO. They are eager to hire graduates into leadership positions throughout their companies. All students are asked to make a good-faith effort to consider opportunities with partner companies.

Regardless of where they go after LGO, students have lifelong access to a supportive alumni network as well as news, events, job listings and other resources from the LGO program office.
