KaLeena Weaver, PMBA 31

On the Olin experience:

Attending Olin has exceeded my expectations in several ways. I have been able to accelerate my professional performance and opportunities by applying my academic curriculum to daily management decisions. The elective courses are fun and use a non-traditional learning structure to really drive home key points about relevant topics such as leadership and crisis communication. By applying the concepts from class, I continue to align my professional approach to that of a successful leader.

On the Olin curriculum:
The curriculum at Olin reinforces the desire to "transform business" through a varied and nuanced mix of course offerings. With my profession in healthcare administration, the opportunity to take classes with business and medical students provides both clinical and business perspectives during class discussions. It challenges one to understand that the answer to a problem may not be as black and white as you originally thought.
