MIT LGO has two rounds of admissions. Our Round 1 LGO application deadline is in October, and Round 2 LGO application deadline is in December. Each LGO application receives at least two reviews. We look for engineering department fit, fit with the LGO program’s goals and curriculum, and fit with the MIT Sloan School’s MBA program. During the interview invitation process, both the MBA and LGO admissions teams review your application for fit with both programs. It is possible to apply to LGO, interview, and be admitted to only the MBA program.
For those who are ready to apply in October, you can apply early in Round 1. Some candidates applying in Round 1 will be wait-listed and considered in LGO Round 2.
