About WashU Olin Business School

  • Our global-mindedness, coupled with our experiential learning, fosters healthier relationships between business and society.
  • And as our entrepreneurial spirit challenges the current models, we pioneer innovation that opens the door for positive, sustainable progress.

At Olin, you’ll develop relationships with people invested in your success—peers, faculty members, staff, and alumni. You’ll be confident. You’ll be passionate. You’ll be prepared for any business challenge. You’ll be a leader ready to make an impact.

The small size of WashU’s business school allows for a deeper level of interaction, participation, and program customization. This fosters relationships that provide many opportunities for continuous achievement.

National Council members, business leaders, and alumni lend their wisdom, expertise, and advice to support Olin Business School’s vision and mission.
