Situated at the intersection of the MIT School of Engineering and the MIT Sloan School of Management, MIT LGO offers students the opportunity to learn from faculty members who have shaped (and continue to shape) the fields of engineering and management. What's more, LGO facilitates and fosters unique collaborations among those faculty members that range from joint courses, such as Product Design and Development, to multidisciplinary research projects conducted through the Operations Research Center. The result is a dynamic academic environment that instills in students the ability to analyze operational challenges through a technical lens and to implement solutions from a management perspective.
LGO students pursue a dual curriculum that leads to an MBA or Master of Science in management and a Master of Science in one of seven engineering disciplines. Interwoven with degree courses is a leadership sequence unique to LGO that includes classes, seminars, and activities designed to help students develop their personal leadership style and skills. Reflecting MIT's motto, mens et manus (mind and hand), LGO students also participate in numerous action learning activities that include a six-month internship with a partner company, in-depth site visits to manufacturing and distribution plants, and regular interactions with industry leaders.
LGO partner companies represent the best of global operations and manufacturing.
