Peter Braxton, MBA 2008

"When I came to Olin, I knew I wanted to change careers, but I had no idea what I wanted to do. I started the program with an open mind and heart, and told myself to give everything a chance."

“I can’t say enough good things about the Olin faculty. If they’re not Nobel Laureates now, they will be. And they all have great credentials. They’re here because they also recognize that this school is something special."

"The curriculum is set up perfectly in terms of teaching analytical and critical-thinking skills, and it goes way past the basics. The courses really dig into relevant business issues. And beyond the rigorous core curriculum, you pursue the areas that have the most interest and relevance to you."
