*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. If conditions prohibit face-to-face coursework, we will switch affected seminars to virtual delivery via the Zoom platform.
