What does it take to be admitted to Olin’s GMF program?

We review each applicant on a number of factors, looking for individuals with strong academic, professional, and extracurricular activities. We base our selections on your past performance, quantitative skills, and communication skills. To ensure diversity in each entering class, we admit students with various backgrounds, experiences, talents, and interests.

  • You must have completed an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, comparable to Washington University's four-year bachelor's degree, at the time of enrollment in the GMF program. Most international three-year degrees meet this requirement.
  • Although professional work experience is not a requirement for admission, most successful applicants have had significant internship and/or work experience prior to acceptance into the program.

Prerequisites, Transfers, and Waivers

Applicants to the Global Master of Finance (GMF) program should have taken microeconomics, statistics, and calculus. Students with no previous background in accounting and finance will be required to take Foundation courses prior to starting the regular coursework in July.

Due to the compressed GMF format, students must complete all courses in the program; course waivers and transfer credits from other universities are not permitted.

Any transfer credits between Olin and partner schools must be a grade of B or higher.
