Executive Programs

Expanding Global Perspectives

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

Olin’s executive education offerings broaden your business horizons.

Gain global perspective in the Executive MBA program

During your second year in the Executive MBA US program, you learn how to understand complex business issues from a global perspective, 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.

As part of the experience, you participate in the International Management Residency in Beijing and Shanghai, where you study global markets, meet with senior representatives from multinational corporations, and visit high-performing companies.

International partnerships inform research and education

Formed in 2002, the Washington University in St. Louis–Fudan University Executive MBA program became the first management-education joint venture in China. In 2014, Washington University and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay announced another joint venture, which is the only executive MBA program in the world to confer a degree from both an American and an Indian university.
