*The current healthcare situation requires that the Olin Business School provide participants with learning conditions that protect the health of participants, business school staff, and faculty. Thus, for the foreseeable future, Olin Executive Education seminars will be appropriately modified to be delivered via Zoom and our new Learn.WashU platform. Olin faculty are well-versed and adept at working with these technological solutions to maximize participant learning and content quality.
