Teaching and Curriculum
Executive MBA courses are taught by Olin Business School’s most seasoned professors, and occasionally a consultant or guest speaker. Teaching methods include case studies, computer simulations, and applied-learning projects. Professors bring their research-driven mind-set into the classroom, challenging you to question assumptions, reframe problems, and explore new ideas.
Todd Zenger, PhD, and Lee Konczak, PhD, are the Executive MBA Academic Directors.
