For the next two years, up to 2,500 members of the Olin Business School community—staff, faculty and students—can take advantage of free subscriptions to Barron’s and its 100-year history of deep coverage of global financial markets.

The opportunity comes thanks to the generosity of Barbara Archer, a partner at St. Louis-based Hightower Wealth Advisors, who is underwriting the subscriptions to the publication’s “Barron’s in Education” package.

In addition to the basic online subscription to Barron’s website and its financial coverage, members of the Olin community who sign up also gain access to:

  • Barron’s “Weekly Review,” a summarized faculty edition each Wednesday.
  • Barron’s daily “Market Brief” for students.
  • Guest speakers and webinars through Barron’s/Dow Jones and Hightower Wealth Advisors, with plans for national webinars a few times a year.
  • Connections to Dow Jones’ career services, with corporate recruitment teams and Hightower Wealth Advisors for internship and career opportunities.
  • Visits to Dow Jones Headquarters in Manhattan for tours accommodating 25 to 30 students and talks with the editorial teams.
  • The Student Ambassador program, an opportunity to recognize students as ambassadors who are trained as on-campus experts, with access to the head of financial education at Dow Jones and related team members.

“This generous gift by Barbara and Hightower Wealth Advisors opens tremendous access to valuable resources covering a critical segment of the business world,” said Mark P. Taylor, dean of WashU Olin Business School. “I’m eager to see how our students and faculty embrace the opportunity and access presented by this gift.”

Barron’s began publication in 1921 by newsman Clarence W. Barron, considered the founder of modern financial journalism. The newspaper was established as a sister publication to The Wall Street Journal, and both are owned by Dow Jones & Company.
