The Power of Its People

What you get from your Olin executive education may surprise you.

Undoubtedly, you acquire mathematical models, methods, and metrics that create value for your organization. You learn how to evaluate balance sheets or potential mergers, forecast demand, and mitigate the risk associated with innovation, as a few examples.

Accessibility, personal attention, and class cohorts

But at its core, the business school is less about numbers and more about people. Olin believes that faculty accessibility, personal attention, and a strong cohort system (in the Executive MBA and specific certificate programs) are just as important as quantitative rigor. Olin’s size and the quality of the Olin community enable the business school to deliver on these attributes in ways other management institutions can’t.

Picture an executive-based learning environment where professors love to teach; take the time to explain, advise, and share business resources; and champion your leadership or entrepreneurial development. Where student services team members guide you through course logistics and support you through personal and professional challenges. Where your family is welcome on campus. And where classmates become a lifelong source of industry information and inspiration as well as a springboard for new career opportunities.
