WUSTL Redesigns MBA Program

School year will now begin in June; include international trips

Washington University in Saint Louis' Olin Business School has redesigned its full-time MBA program for 2019.

Starting then, the school year will officially start in late-June, with trips to Washington, DC, Barcelona, and Shanghai. After that, the fall semester will begin in St. Louis, where students will study core MBA topics such as strategy, finance, and operations, among others.

Beyond the initial immersion trip, WUSTL's MBA will also offer several opportunities for additional study-abroad sessions. These opportunities will include a venture consulting project in Budapest, regional-focused courses, and exchange programs with other business schools. Second-year students can also participate in the MBAs Without Borders program, which places graduates in companies in emerging economies.

Although the program is two years long, the school will also offer an accelerated version of the MBA as well. Students will also be able to pair their MBA with a second master's program.

The relaunched program will be offered starting next year.
