Poets & Quants has named Olin Business School one of “10 Undergraduate Business Schools to Watch In 2022.”

“The best want to surround themselves with the best,” P&Q, the online news site about business schools, wrote in a February 26 article about Olin.

“They need to be exposed to new ideas, always looking to learn and never content with the way things are. That means finding people who share their values and commitment—and aren’t afraid to push them.

“The Olin Business School is one community that gathers the best-of-the-best.”

Last year, 100% of Olin students seeking a business internship landed one, the article notes. “Better still, the school placed 97.67% of 2020 grads, who pulled down starting average compensation of $82,339.”

In addition, Olin achieved gender parity with its incoming class this fall.

The piece includes an interview with Olin Dean Mark Taylor about his thoughts on what makes Olin a business school to watch.

“WashU Olin’s undergraduate program has always prioritized global experiences and fostered a culture that encourages study abroad and engagement with international businesses,” Taylor said.

“Indeed, up to now, more than 60% of Olin undergrads have engaged in a global experience. We’ve doubled down on that emphasis with a new global mindset degree requirement for undergraduates starting with the class of 2025. The degree requirement aligns with Olin’s determination to develop multicultural awareness, communication skills, and an appreciation of what it means to lead globally.”
