*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. As a result, Olin faculty are prepared to deliver their sessions either live, or virtually, as regulations and circumstances permit. Our default model will be live seminars. However, if conditions prohibit face-to-face coursework, we will switch affected seminars to virtual delivery via the Zoom platform.
Olin instructors have been delivering their content virtually since the crisis surfaced, with exceptional results. If a session is executed virtually, we will charge a per participant per day of $765 (instead of the usual $920).
We appreciate your continued patience as we evolve our offerings.
