Olin’s marketing group fosters a close collaboration between students and faculty. We have a relatively small PhD program, and students get a lot of attention from day one, says Raphael Thomadsen, professor of marketing and chair of the marketing area.

Further, students and faculty are constantly collaborating on research projects, with students often working on multiple projects with different sets of faculty members. This allows students to learn the best modern research methods, while building a CV that will give a strong start to their career.
