Innovative Learning. Delivering Impact.
The Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) is an educational center located in the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis. The CEL is focused on creating innovative learning opportunities that result in meaningful impact in the business and nonprofit communities.
The CEL supports projects that are team-based, faculty-guided, and of consequence to clients. Each year, the CEL oversees more than 100 projects with more than 300 Washington University students.
The projects are conducted for St. Louis nonprofits, start-ups, and global firms. The issues addressed in these projects include accounting, finance, marketing, strategy, and general management.
