The Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis was recently designated by graduate business education website Poets & Quants as the MBA Program of 2019, thanks to a series of innovative program changes emphasizing global experiential learning.
At the heart of the new program is a required global immersion that takes the entire class of newly arrived students on a 38-day, round-the-world learning experience in Washington, D.C., Barcelona, Spain, and Shanghai, China. At each location, the school combined classroom learning, including case studies and external speakers, with hands-on consulting projects and site visits.
During its 17-day stay in Shanghai, The Asia Institute hosted Olin’s nearly 100 students and faculty by providing logistical support. In addition, The Asia Institute supported the program with visits to companies including Bosideng, one of China’s largest clothing retailers.
The Asia Institute would like to congratulate the students and faculty of Washington University’s Olin Business School on this tremendous honor and look forward to supporting future MBA programs in Asia.
