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 of their choosing, often following the guidelines of concentration areas that help students navigate the curriculum toward their career goals. Elective courses include semester-long (3 credit) courses, six week “mini” (1.5 credit) courses, and work-study positions. Olin MBAs can also take up to nine credits of approved coursework from other graduate programs at Washington University.
