MBA Career Platforms

At Olin, we create leaders, not just business people. Leaders who are experts in their field. Leaders with broad perspective, grounded with integrity. Leaders equipped to make thoughtful decisions, build sustainable enterprises, serve thriving communities.

Olin’s career platforms help you focus your studies as you become the expert you’re meant to be. In five critical business disciplines—consulting, marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, and operations/supply chain—platforms offer rich insight from faculty experts and access to industry leaders. You’ll deepen your knowledge, gain industry experience, and develop your perspective into unique aspects in each field.

Explore your options

Each of Olin’s five platforms allows you to have a laser focus on a specific career path. Industry seminars let you network with industry leaders and provide an understanding of the unique aspects of each field, which is especially helpful as students explore their career options. See the platform seminar speakers (PDF).

Panelists discuss their industries and functional expertise at platform seminars.

You can use a platform to align your Olin experience with your career goals—choosing courses, experiential projects, extracurricular activities, internships, and clubs. A platform also gives you, well, a platform for talking about your Olin experience with recruiters and during job interviews.

Platforms and your career outcomes

The platform directors work closely with the Weston Career Center, where career coaches and industry specialists can discuss the benefits of choosing a platform, help you select one, and provide guidance as you navigate through it. The WCC also connects you with employers who'll value your newfound expertise. Student clubs also play a central role in the platform experience, creating opportunities for students to demonstrate their leadership in front of key influencers in their chosen field.
