"Aha moments" for LGOs at MIT

MIT Leaders for Global Operations students Jane Guertin '14 and Tacy Napolillo '14 talk about the amazing experience of learning directly from world-renowned experts like Andrew Lo, and then "seeing the classroom come alive" thanks to plant tours and other exposure to LGO partner companies like Amgen. Jane describes how within weeks of her operations class studying Little's Law--named for MIT Institute Professor John Little--she saw it in practice at Amgen's Rhode Island facility.

As Tacy says, at MIT "the expectation is that I will take this knowledge out into the world and make a difference." Like other LGO students, Jane and Tacy have discovered during their first few months on the program that LGO's partnership with industry makes the program a constant action learning experience.
