Application process

The LGO application deadline is December 15, 2015. All applications must be submitted online either through the MIT Sloan School or Management or through one of seven participating engineering departments within the MIT School of Engineering. The applications have different requirements, but the LGO review process is the same for all applications. Some students choose which school to apply through based on their interests and inclinations, or because they would like to be considered for that school or department in the event that they are not admitted to LGO. Some engineering departments—including Aeronautics and Astronautics, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science—will consider students not admitted to LGO for their master’s and/or Ph.D. program. All applicants who apply through MIT Sloan will be considered for the second round of MBA admissions if they are not admitted to LGO.
