Leaders for Global Operations

The Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) program is an educational and research partnership among global operations companies, MIT's School of Engineering, and the MIT Sloan School of Management. The 24-month program combines graduate education in engineering and management for those with previous postgraduate work experience. Students complete a six-month internship at one of LGO's partner companies, where they conduct research that forms the basis of a dual-degree thesis. Graduates finish the program with two MIT degrees: an MBA (or SM in management) and an SM from one of six engineering programs. Graduates take on leadership responsibilities at top global manufacturing and operations companies. LGO coordinates with the following departments in the School of Engineering: Aeronautics and Astronautics, Biological Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering.
