Student Success Stories

Faculty and staff alike connect with students, getting to know them and supporting them every step of the way during their academic journeys.

To one student, success is expanding their global mindedness to lay the foundation for a job in international finance. To another, success is developing an idea that turns into a startup venture—sometimes while a student. Still, another’s definition of success is blending a lifelong love of the arts with a grounded business foundation.

Whatever your definition of success, we’re here to help you reach your professional and personal goals. We could list a lot of our resources to make our point, but we think our students can say it in an even better way.

The wraparound support I received through my scholarship, the graduate programs office and faculty influenced my success in the program tremendously. Olin truly is a multifaceted community that gives students the tools to be successful while pushing them to be better versions of themselves.

The career resources at Olin are extremely accessible and helpful. Before I knew which path I wanted to pursue in the finance industry, the career coaches helped explain the various career paths and pointed me toward professional development events that would further my learning. Once I started to land interviews, they provided interview prep resources as well as mock interview opportunities.
