LGO Core: The Summer Program

LGO students come to MIT three months before their Sloan MBA colleagues. The early coursework allows the LGOs to graduate two years later with two degrees: MBA and an engineering master’s degree. But the summer program isn’t just about classes. Students start their leadership development curriculum and begin their plant treks. During the summer, LGOs are in classes together, creating a “small school feel.” Starting in the fall semester, they integrate into the MIT MBA class and their engineering department, creating a “large school network.”
