MIT Leaders for Global Operations Welcomes MAG-IAS as Industry Partner

MIT Partners with MAG-IAS

The MIT Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) program welcomes MAG-IAS, a world-leading provider of metalworking and composites processing solutions for the durable goods industry, to its roster of highly select global manufacturing and operations companies from around the world.

MIT LGO is the nation's leading dual-degree graduate program in engineering and management innovation for students aiming for careers in operations and manufacturing. Students graduate with a Master of Business Administration from the MIT Sloan School of Management and a Master of Science from one of seven programs within the MIT School of Engineering. LGO benefits from the wealth of resources, world-renowned faculty, and connections offered by MIT, the world's leading institution focused on science and technology.

MAG joins 20 other MIT LGO partner organizations that include world leaders such as, Boeing, Caterpillar, Dell, General Motors, Novartis and United Technologies. As an MIT LGO partner company, MAG will gain access to MIT faculty and research as well as best practices of other partner companies, with the potential for joint operations projects. Partner companies host in-depth site visits and six-month student internships with MIT faculty support. MIT LGO interns offer high-value return by addressing critical business needs including production network strategy, energy waste reduction, and supply chain optimization. Partner companies also provide input into MIT LGO's curriculum and activities, ensuring that the program stays relevant and responsive to their most pressing operations challenges.

"We anticipate a mutually rewarding relationship with the MIT LGO program and look forward to the knowledge both parties will gain from the shared experience," said Bill Horwarth, President, MAG Global Services. "As a longtime supplier of manufacturing technology for many current LGO partners such as Boeing, Caterpillar, Spirit AeroSystems and United Technologies, we hope to provide LGO students with opportunities to contribute to significant projects and relationships we have in play with these global giants and to develop career opportunities at MAG."

"MIT LGO students and faculty are excited about the opportunities that the MAG partnership provides, especially in the realm of advanced manufacturing, where MAG's innovative technologies and worldwide operations will provide many opportunities for our students to take on leading-edge challenges," said Don Rosenfield, Senior Lecturer, MIT Sloan School, and LGO Program Director.
