What Recent Grads Say See All 5 Comments >

With the small class size, Olin's MBA program is personable and adaptable. Most students develop strong relationships with not only each other but the faculty and the administration. These relationships help students contribute improvements to the program and I feel these relationships will continue to help me further my career.
