Admissions Information | MIT Global SCALE Network

Diversity in the student body is an important characteristic of the SCALE programs. While applicants are expected to have an aptitude for analytical thinking, they do not need to have an undergraduate degree in engineering. We invite students of all disciplines to apply. Beyond education, relevant work experience will weigh heavily in the admissions decision.

Application Deadlines

The online application for admission is open. Please read the instructions carefully on the Application Requirements and How to Apply web pages of this website before starting your online application.

All SCALE applications for master's programs (SCM, ZLOG, LSCM, and MSCM) are for fall term admission. The program has three admissions rounds each year:

  • Round I Deadline: November 15
  • Round II Deadline: February 1
  • Round III Deadline: April 1

To learn more about GCLOG's admissions, click here. Students are welcome to submit their applications at any point before each round's deadline.

All students are encouraged to apply early while slots are still available. It is also smart to apply early in case we ask you to retake the GMAT or GRE Tests, or to take a remedial math class. We also strongly encourage international students to apply in Round I or Round II to allow more time for visa processing.
