From Military to Higher Education

We know that your dedication to excellence in your military career will align your education and advance your career.

Your military experience has led to leadership, knowledge and a strong work ethic. WashU Olin has a variety of opportunities to support you on your journey to civilian life, and ultimately, help you realize the business career of your dreams.

We’re here to support you along your chosen path, tap into your already strong leadership skills and round out your business acumen. Through our Values Based, Data Driven approach, we equip you to lead in knowing not only which problems require attention, but also which solutions will do the most good.

  • A Close-Knit Community

    WashU Olin is a close-knit community committed to helping you be your very best. Look forward to building strong bonds with fellow students and faculty members that harken back to the values and relations you experienced during your years of service. No matter what Olin program you choose, the emphasis on personal and team success will resonate with you.

  • The Support You Need

    We’ve worked to remove the red tape that prevents you from securing the benefits you deserve. Plus, we have resources and staff in place to address your needs with financial services, the transition from military to civilian life for you and your family, networking during your career search and more.

    Veterans seek out Olin Business School. We think it’s because Olin is a place to apply your military experience and transform it in order to become a leader in the business world. We’re honored to say our programs include students from each branch of the military.
