My name is Andrew and I’m a first-year student in the MIT Leaders for Global Operations Program. If you’re new to the program, LGO is a two-year, dual-degree MBA/MS Engineering program founded at MIT and is a partnership between the Sloan School of Management and the School of Engineering. LGO is focused on educating technically-polished future business leaders to solve tomorrow’s operations challenges. I’m 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.

A little bit about me and my background:
Born and raised in southern Maine.
Graduated in 2009 from the University of Maine with a BS in Chemical Engineering.
Began working at Invensys Operations Management in their Engineering Rotation program.
Transitioned to software and hardware quality assurance at a smart grid communications start-up named Ambient Corporation.
Admitted to LGO in the Aeronautics and Astronautics department.

As a new member to the forum, I can't link you directly to the LGO website but I've included a list of links attached to this post. Check it out and let us know what questions you have, or just use this as a no-stress place to chat with other applicants!

I'm thinking of applying to the LGO program for Engineering Systems. My current work, which I very much enjoy, involves managing an international manufacturing pipeline, which seems to fit in nicely with the Manufacturing Systems and Supply Chain track. However, my background is in Economics, not engineering. My gpa and test scores are competitive, but I'm not sure if my lack of formal engineering education essentially disqualifies me the LGO program. Any advice people have would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ambassador Day is coming up!

Each year, MIT Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) hosts a special day of events when prospective applicants can spend a full day at MIT to learn more about the program. This year, LGO Ambassador Day and Information Evening will take place on Monday, Nov. 3, 2014. The current agenda can be found below, and the detailed agenda can be found here.

Ambassador Day Schedule (9:30am - 5:30pm)
By sitting in on a class, having lunch with current LGO students and admissions staff, and touring the MIT campus, you’ll begin to understand what life is like as an LGO student.

9:30-10:30 Register in the Sloan building (E62-233)
10:00-12:00 Attend a class or tour the MIT campus
12:00-1:00 Enjoy lunch with current LGO students & staff
1:00-2:30 Tour the MIT campus or attend a class
2:30-4:00 Attend Breakout Sessions & Information Fair
4:00-5:30 Attend a partner company seminar

Information Evening (5:30pm - 8:30pm)
This event will include remarks from Executive Director of the Center for Transportation and Logistics, Chris Caplice, a presentation by LGO Program Executive Director Thomas Roemer, and a student and alumni panel discussion. It will offer you an excellent opportunity to connect with LGO students, alumni, faculty, and staff members. Registration will begin at 5:30 on the first floor of MIT Building E62.

If you have not already RSVP'ed, please let us know if you would like to attend by emailing Leah Schouten, LGO Admissions Coordinator at schouten@mit.edu.

We look forward to meeting you!

Hi, sorry for the long delay in response! The most competitive applicants to the LGO program typically have an undergraduate engineering or science background. If you have a transcript that shows any science or engineering coursework while getting your Economics degree, that would contribute to the strength of your application.

I hope you're still interested in applying! You can contact schouten@mit.edu if you have any more detailed questions about your academic background.
