The Master of Business Administration degree requires the completion of 67 credit hours through a combination of required and elective courses. This allows students to shape their MBA curriculum to align with their personal and professional goals. Students can select classes that will hone their skills and start them on paths to becoming experts in their fields.
The Full-Time MBA kicks off with a six-week global immersion in Washington, D.C., Barcelona and Shanghai. After students return to St. Louis at the end of the summer semester, they will continue their program with course work in operations, economics, accounting, marketing and strategy.
Students pursuing the Full-Time MBA program will have the option to accelerate their program to finish in one year. They will also have the option to complete a dual-degree program with an Olin Specialized Master’s Program in a span of five semesters.
In the months leading up to the start of the program, students have the opportunity to jump-start their learning by completing several optional online preparatory courses available through our partnership with Lynda.com.
An optional two-week, non-credit-bearing, on-campus Competitive Communication Skills course for non-native English speakers is also offered just prior to the start of the GO! Program. Our website for new students provides useful information and tips to help students prepare for their programs and their career development.
GO! Orientation Program
Through the GO! orientation program, students get to know all that is Olin and Washington University so that they can jump into the deep end of classes beginning on day one. It's about becoming one with our culture. This two-week program is designed to immerse students into core course work, career development, and team building with their classmates.
