Learning for a Lifetime of Achievement

Apply what you learn to your management challenges, from your first day of classes onward.

Since it was founded in 1983, Olin’s Executive MBA program has promoted excellence and innovation in management education. “Learning for a lifetime of achievement” has been its longstanding objective, championed by Olin faculty, staff, alumni, and corporate partners.

Leading people, programs, and change

From the beginning, the program has attracted some of the best minds in business. The Executive MBA faculty helps you master business fundamentals. More important, they teach you how these disciplines interact in top-level organizational management.

Put another way, professors encourage you to think strategically, holistically, globally, and collaboratively. As a result, the EMBA experience prepares you to lead people, programs, and change.

Immediate return on investment

From your first day of classes on, you acquire business models and methods, tools you can use right away to improve your performance. During classroom exchanges with faculty and peers, you discuss – and sometimes debate – solutions to pressing management problems. It all translates into real-time applications that drive positive results at your organization.

Brand reputation and recognition

Top 20 rankings from noted business publications reflect the quality of Olin’s brand. In 2013, U.S. News & World Report ranked the program #14, and the Financial Times rated the program in Shanghai sixth best worldwide with the same faculty and almost identical curriculum as the U.S. program. In 2010, The Wall Street Journal ranked the program as #2 in the world.

Olin’s Executive MBA program is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Less than 5 percent of the world’s business schools have earned the distinction.
