About Olin Business School

Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis is an institution of leaders: distinguished research faculty…exhilarated, brilliant students … and successful, energized alumni.

Located in the heart of the Midwest, Olin is one of the country's leading research-oriented business schools. Our degree programs are known for their demanding scholastic standards and emphasis on experiential learning.

“Research-driven thinking, applied” is the organizing principle across the school’s degree and nondegree programs, which emphasize developing the rigorously analytical, critical-thinking skills; applied learning; global competence; and communication and collaboration skills needed to solve today’s complex, unstructured business challenges.

The small size of Washington University's business school allows for a deeper level of interaction, participation, and program customization, which, in turn, fosters key relationships that provide endless opportunities for continuous achievement.

Washington University encourages and gives full consideration to all applicants for admission, financial aid, and employment. The University does not discriminate in access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, veteran status, disability or genetic information.
