The Olin Business School MBA: What You Need To Know

“Research-driven thinking, applied”  is the operating principle for the Olin Business School two-year MBA Program. Research-driven thinking is a way of approaching business problems or issues with the same rigorously analytical mindset used to conduct research.

The Olin MBA curriculum offers a comprehensive set of required and elective courses built upon a foundation of critical thinking and leadership skills. The degree requires completion of 66 credit hours, nearly two-thirds of which are elective courses selected by the individual student, allowing Olin MBAs to shape the curriculum to fit their own objectives.

The fall semester of year one focuses on critical thinking, leadership, career strategy, and the major functional areas of business. During the spring semester of year one, and throughout year two, students take mostly elective courses, often following the guidelines of concentration areas that help students navigate the curriculum toward career goals. Elective courses include semester-long (3-credit) courses, six-week “mini” (1.5-credit) courses, and experiential learning opportunities. Olin MBAs can also take up to nine credits of approved course work from other graduate programs at Washington University.
