Nissan

A truly global automotive company, Nissan joined the MIT LGO partnership in 2019. Based on the principles of lean production that inspired the launch of LGO, today Nissan operates the highest-volume automotive assembly plant in North America, and is a pioneer in the Industrial Internet of Things. As a partner, Nissan offers LGO internships in a wide range of fields within their manufacturing and supply chain network. Nissan also recruits LGOs to join the growing group of program alumni within the company. Internships will address such topics as technology-driven automatic quality inspection, simulations to identify bottlenecks and reduce downtime, and paint chemistry process improvements.

Nissan is recruiting LGOs who thrive in a fast paced, flexible environment. We are seeking those who adapt quickly to change and are interested in developing people leadership skills. We are thrilled to offer a broad range of opportunities designed to align key talent with impactful roles.

Rotational & Leadership Development Opportunities: LGOs are hired directly into a leadership development rotational program with international possibilities based on the LGO’s interest and business needs of the company. Career paths can be discussed with leadership and Talent Management to determine your fit for a functional leadership path, or a general business. Each path will provide you with a strong career at Nissan while focusing on personal aspirations and business goals.
