Integrated Teachings Boost Learning

Drive positive results for your stakeholders and enterprise.

Founded in 1983, Olin’s Executive MBA program promotes excellence and innovation in management education. Lifelong learning is the objective, championed by Olin faculty, administrators, alumni, and corporate partners.

Leading people and organizations

Mastering individual business disciplines won’t make you a successful leader. You need to understand how the disciplines interact to support company-wide growth, globalization, and innovation. EMBA faculty integrate program teachings, reinforcing the interrelationships required for leadership. The holistic approach to management improves your ability to build stakeholder relationships, develop teams, grow new ventures, and implement strategy.

Focus on innovation and entrepreneurship

Consider the EMBA program a springboard for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs looking to commercialize a business idea or to launch a new company, product, or service. Innovation and venture creation are emphasized throughout the program. An innovation project and capstone pitch competition differentiate the curriculum and require you to synthesize knowledge from your core courses and second-year integrated themes.

Immediate return on investment

You acquire business models, methods, and strategies you can use right away to tackle management challenges.

Brand reputation and recognition

Top 20 Executive MBA rankings from noted business publications reflect the quality of Olin’s brand. In 2014, the Financial Times ranked the program in Shanghai No. 7 in the world. In 2010, The Wall Street Journal ranked the program No. 2 in the world.

Olin’s Executive MBA program is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Less than 5 percent of the world’s business schools have earned the distinction.
