What does it take to be admitted to Olin's MS/SCM Program?

We review each applicant on a number of factors, looking for individuals with strong academic, professional, and extracurricular activities. We base our selections on your past performance, quantitative skills, and communication skills. To ensure diversity in each entering class, we admit students with various backgrounds, experiences, talents, and interests.

You must have completed an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, comparable to Washington University's four-year bachelor's degree, at the time of enrollment in the MS/SCM program.

Although professional work experience is not a requirement for admission, most successful applicants have had significant internship and/or work experience prior to acceptance into the MS/SCM program.
