At Olin, we look for people who intend to transform their careers into something more meaningful.
Admission to the Olin MBA Program is competitive. Each applicant is carefully considered by the Olin Admissions Committee – using both objective and subjective criteria – and there is no formula used to arrive at a decision. Rather, the Admissions Committee takes a holistic approach to candidate evaluation with specific interest in your academic ability, professional potential, leadership qualities, communication and interpersonal skills, demonstrated achievements, motivation, and diversity.
We purposely maintain a relatively small class size. The consequence of this choice is that every student matters. As we craft a class, we value and seek diversity by accepting candidates from varied backgrounds, skill sets, cultures, and talents.

There is no application fee for the Full-time MBA Program for Fall 2017 admission. At Olin, our goal is to consider every candidate who has a serious interest in our school and our program regardless of ability to pay an application fee.

Olin Business School will accept up to nine credits of graduate level coursework taken at other AACSB-accredited institutions if the grades earned are “B” or above and the Academic Review Committee judges the courses to be equivalent to Olin classes in quality and content. Submit the course syllabus and transcript to your academic advisor for any classes you’d like to be considered for transfer credit. The review process takes at least two weeks to complete.
