Olin Event Series

​Some events are about more than what happens on the scheduled day. They’re about ideas. Innovation. Inspiration. A creation of community.

At WashU Olin Business School, we’re committed to a well-rounded experience for students, alumni, and our community. We like to say our events meet you at the gateway of ideas, innovation and inspiration with informative and timely speakers and events.

Brauer Lecture Series

Stephen and Camilla Brauer created the Brauer Lecture Series to explore and encourage dialogue on the American free enterprise system and its influence on economic growth, public policy and world affairs.

Stephen and Camilla BrauerThe series, in collaboration with Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, features leading scholars and public figures from across the United States. It supports student growth and development in alignment with Olin’s vision of world-changing business education.

The series organizers encourage featured lecturers to discuss how their values guide their daily lives while also highlighting the importance of free-market economics.

America’s free market enterprise system is not just about creating economic prosperity. It protects the core of our democratic system. We are grateful to the Brauer family for their generosity and the opportunity to bring key thought leaders to campus. Our hope is that this university wide lecture series will spark discussion, debate and a deeper understanding of the critical importance of economic growth through free markets.

—Liberty Vittert, professor of practice of data science at Olin Business School and faculty director of the Brauer Lecture Series
