MBA Class Profiles

As an entering MBA, you’ll have about 150 classmates — smart, high-achieving men and women who want to make their mark in business and their communities

Our students represent a wide range of academic disciplines, professional experiences and cultural backgrounds. This diverse group of peers will help drive and shape your transformation.

About a third of our students are women, and Olin is a member of the Forté Foundation, a consortium of business schools and corporations that provides fellowships to increase the participation of women in management.

We’re a founding member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, an organization that works to address the underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans in business schools and in corporations.

Approximately a third of our students come from countries outside the United States, and they provide unique insights into diverse cultures, viewpoints, and business practices — a tremendous asset in a world of multinational corporations.
