The Master of Business Administration degree requires the completion of 67 credit units 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.
Students will begin their program in the fall semester with course work in operations, economics, accounting, marketing, finance and strategy. Following this, students will complete a six-week global immersion in the spring semester in Washington, D.C., Barcelona and Lima.
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 LinkedIn Learning.
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.
