Factors and Procedures Used in Admissions

(Data appear as originally submitted by this school)
Full-time program
We consider applicant's GPA and GMAT scores, undergraduate school, and major. We also look at goals, work history, motivation, experience, activities, and character; and how these are communicated to us in essays and interviews. We encourage applicants to visit Olin, interview with the admissions team, sit in on a class, tour the campus, explore St. Louis, and meet current Olin students.
Executive program
The predictors for success in Olin's Executive M.B.A. Programs are a high level of achievement, a strong academic record, and an intense desire to learn. Decisions are based on demonstration of these qualities, potential to contribute to the E.M.B.A. experience, and on overall capacity to thrive in a rigorous academic environment. We require a letter of sponsorship from your organization.
