Matriculating 2013 MIT Sloan Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) Program


Hi, my name is David and I'm a first year student in the MIT Leaders for Global Operations program. LGO is a two-year, dual-degree MBA/MS Engineering program born from the collaboration of the Sloan School of Management and the MIT School of Engineering. LGO is focused on educating technically-polished future business leaders to solve tomorrow's operations challenges. I am starting this thread with a few classmates to help answer some questions, to familiarize you with the program, and to let you know what being a student at MIT/Sloan is really like.

Couple of notes about LGO:
[list][*]The majority of the tuition (at Sloan's rates) is subsidized
[*]The program starts in the beginning of MIT's summer session to allow the Sloan/engineering courses to fit in the two years allotted
[*]Acceptance is limited to about 48 per year
[*]Generally considered more a part of Sloan than the engineering department

The application process is almost identical to the general Sloan process. The LGO program is a selectable option from the Sloan application site or through the MIT engineering graduate school site. If you apply through the Sloan side, there is an additional essay requirement.



And now for some good resources on LGO...

The best initial sources for information are the program website:
http://lgo.mit.edu
http://lgo.mit.edu/brochure

Additionally, I would check out the main program blog, student blogs and alumni blogs:
http://lgo-blog.mit.edu/

Let us know what questions you have or just use this as a no-stress place to chat with other applicants!

For what it's worth, there are exactly 294 applicants in the 2015 LGO class. They will be interviewing "in early February."

A little bit of history:

In 2010, calls were made over the weekend (PriceNation):
jzd - call - Friday - last name starts with C
ndsheth8 - call - Saturday - last name starts with ?
LGOorbust - call - Sunday - last name starts with ?
aam2005 - call - Sunday - last name starts with M
LGOgirl - call - Monday - last name starts with Z

2011, everyone was called on one day (zeelurker):

2012 calls:
PriceNation, last name Pr – 9:15pm EST Wed, March 7
Lgohopeful, last name G – 9:30pm EST on Wed, March 7
Brau0300, last name B – around 9:20pm EST Wed, March 7
Jalapeno04654, last name B – 8:58pm EST Thurs, March 8
Ntan, last name T – 9:50pm EST Thurs, March 8
H2polo, last name C – 9:30pm EST Thurs, March 8

Also, rajadi told us that the decision date is the 11th, but “those who get in can expect a call between 8th-11th”

From searching through previous LGO threads here, it looks like the bulk of the invites were handed out for Interviewfest in early February, but they are still going to hand some out here and there from now until March. May not sound encouraging but hey, until you see a ding anything is possible!

nikhil2012,

I'm not affiliated with the admissions office here, so any guess I would have about the competitiveness of your application would be just that....a guess. You may want to look at this forum and the ones from previous years to see how other people's GMAT scores, GPAs, etc look. But in the end, if you are interested in the program, I would encourage you to just go ahead and apply. The scores don't tell the whole story of an application. By just looking at those scores, you may get a bit of skewed view of your chances of acceptance.

I just attended an admissions chat and Leah (LGO Admissions) said the decision date is 11th, so I better believe her to be right... but those who get in can expect a call between 8th-11th. Others...

Does anyone know if they'll be calling through the weekend as in previous years? Seems like the calls went out pretty early yesterday, which may have given enough time to have already called all those who were accepted.

Perhaps a little bit of hope. I hadn't received a call and emailed someone affiliated with the program yesterday morning asking if all of the 2015 students had been notified. The person replied this morning: "Most but not all were informed. It should be completed tomorrow." I am not going to get excited, as it could be the international students who will be called tomorrow but, at the very least, there's still hope for a few candidates :)


Thank you for this info, Enginerd. I'm also someone who interviewed but have not received a call. I'm just waiting for the official letter in the mail at this point...

10:53 email from LGO: they are unable to offer me admission to the LGO class of 2015, but I'm still under consideration at Sloan


My email said the same thing. Does that mean no potential interview invitation required for Sloan decision? I think the past threads indicate that people who were considered positively for regular Sloan program were invited to interview first.

Also, one question... Do you know if the final decision was based solely on the interview performance, or was it a holistic application strength? I'm trying to figure out if it was the interview I didn't do well.

I guess this programme excludes all those without a US Work Permit then.

Hello rnin,

You do not need a work permit to apply to the LGO program.

The program does admit international students and around 10% of the class is international. LGO defines an international applicant as one who has neither citizenship nor permanent residence status in the United States. All international applicants are considered and the evaluation process is exactly the same as for U.S. applicants. Historically, a small percentage of each LGO class has been international because our industry partners (who fund the majority of the program) expect most of our graduates to be pre-authorized to work in their facilities.

Each application is evaluated based on its own merit. If you feel LGO is a good match for your interests, you should absolutely apply.

Thank you for the thread!

I am very interested in the program and have been reading some materials already. I have a question regarding applying / decision gates. As I'm planning to apply to LGO this year, but I also consider 2 other schools (although LGO is at the top of my list now). I would like to apply to those schools as early as possible to get all the advantages of early application.

However, if accepted to these institutions, I will need to make my choice before decision release at MIT... This is the question to those who applied already, did you apply to all your B-schools at Round 2 or somehow managed to do it in Round 1?

Another question - regarding the Engineering background. What are the requirements (degree / working experience in the field / etc.)?

April,

I'm glad to see about your interest in the program. For what it's worth, all of my applications were round 2 as I recall with maybe the exception of a program or two with commit dates after the LGO decision. LGO was my number one choice, so I based my application schedule around it.

As far as the engineering background, take a look at this link: http://lgo.mit.edu/apply/qualifications/

More directly, two years working experience and an undergraduate or graduate degree in engineering, computer science, biology, chemistry, or physics are required. Of course, exceptions are possible. This year we have an applied math and an architecture undergrad degree both represented. I hope this helps. Good luck with your applications!

Hello TDFDSFAS,

The short answer is no. Take a look at my comment from August 1 on this thread. Let me know if that doesn't clear things up.

Hi Aprill-

Like Robbie and Dave, I'm also an LGO, class of 2014. Glad you are interested in the program and happy to answer any other questions you may have! Last fall, I had the same question regarding application rounds for other schools and I decided to apply Round 1 to three other schools -- agree that it is somewhat frustrating that the LGO decision is given after deposits are due! However, I was able to contact the other schools in February and explain that I was waiting for an additional decision, and they were willing to extend the deposit deadline. I'm not sure this will work for all schools, but in my experience, they were willing to be flexible, so I wouldn't be afraid of applying round 1 and still applying to LGO.

Best,

JS

I am contemplating applying to LGO focusing on ESD and I'm struggling to decide whether to forgo applying Round 1 Sloan only or whether to wait and apply for LGO. Based on the class size (and notably smaller availability for this cycle), it seems Round 2 will be much more competitive than previous years. Even the LGO Ambassador Day is after many other school's Round 1 application deadlines. What a pickle!

Is anyone in this thread doing their dual degree in ESD or able to connect me with someone who is? Would really appreciate the chance to connect with someone ahead of time to get a better feel for ESD and LGO as a whole.
