Executive Programs

Expanding Global Perspectives

To compete successfully in today’s business environment, you must have at least a basic understanding of forces that shape the world economy. Even if your organization doesn’t have global operations, it still is affected by actions in the global marketplace.

Olin’s executive program offerings broaden your business horizons.

Gain global perspective in the Executive MBA program

During your second year in the Executive MBA program, you learn how to manage global business issues, including international economics, cultural differences, and challenges associated with the geopolitical landscape. More specifically, you evaluate growth opportunities and competitive threats affected by world events and disruptive technologies.

You also participate in an eight-day residency in Shanghai, one of the world’s leading financial centers, where you study global markets, meet with senior-level representatives from Chinese and multinational corporations, and take in-depth tours of high-performing companies.

International partnerships inform research and education

The Washington University and Fudan University partnership formed in 2002 created the first management education joint venture in China, an Executive MBA in Shanghai. Collaborations like these engage faculty and students with today's interconnected business world. Read more about Olin Business School's continually expanding partnerships.
