We’re Here to Help

Professors Dedicated to Your Success

Informed by research, our teaching is rooted in a nuanced understanding of current business trends, while focusing on the challenges that face society. Olin’s research-active faculty come from all over the world yet share an “open door policy” of inviting students to engage with them regularly. In the classroom and out, you’ll learn how to apply rigorous decision-making criteria to make choices that deliver results with integrity, consistent with your values.

At Olin, we embrace our relatively small size, which allows insight and intimacy. Our small class sizes mean our professors know more than your name. They know your talents. Your goals. Your hopes and dreams. And they’re invested in your success.

Respected as thought leaders in their fields, Olin professors engage you inside and outside the classroom. It’s about more than the world-class instruction they deliver. It’s about the guidance, wisdom, and support they bring to every student.

Here are some of the faculty you’ll meet.
