  • Please check course descriptions carefully for PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENTS. Students are subject to removal from courses in which they do not meet prerequisite requirements. Course descriptions can be found on the Academics page at Full-Time MBA Program Campus Groups. Click on Course Descriptions (pdf).
  • Final exam schedules can be found at Final Exam Schedules.
  • Non-Olin graduate students must receive approval before enrolling in Olin courses (contact home program Registrar to obtain approval form.) Requests from non-Olin students will be accepted starting two weeks after Olin students begin registration.
  • Due to high demand, students attempting to enroll in all short courses (weekend and week-long courses) and other select courses will be directed to a waitlist. This will allow the Registrar to manage the demand, ensuring that the proper priority is given. MBA students will receive priority enrollment in short courses listed below. PMBA students will receive enrollment priority in short courses listed in the PMBA Electives listing. Approximately two weeks after the registration period begins, students will be enrolled or waitlisted (if applicable) by the Registrar. Beyond this two week period, registration priority is no longer applicable; any available seats in a course are on a first come, first served basis through the normal enrollment process in WebSTAC. NOTE: MGT 570A and MGT 570B, Global Business 1 and 2, has a designated registration sections for each student population. MBA students should register for Section 01. PMBA students should register for Section 02.
  • Please refer to the PMBA Elective schedule for evening course offerings. Course enrollment priority is given to the PMBA students during the first two weeks after registration begins. If necessary, MBA students are subject to removal from PMBA courses during this period.
  • Please check in the Center for Experiential Learning for more information on MGT 555 (GMS).
  • The following courses are cross-listed with BSBA courses: ACCT 563, MGT 524, MGT 550J and MGT 550V. MGT 550J will meet as scheduled during the MBA Travel Week (March 3-7, 2014).
  • Semester-length courses that meet once per week will be scheduled for a three-hour time slot. This allows for a 15-minute break. If there is no scheduled break early dismissal would be appropriate. These courses will meet 12 times (14 times including the midterm and final.)
  • Semester-length courses that meet twice per week will be scheduled for a 1½ hour time slot and will meet 22 times (24 times including the midterm and final.)
  • Mini courses that meet once per week will be scheduled for a three-hour time slot. This allows for a 15 minute break. If there is no scheduled break early dismissal would be appropriate. These courses will meet 6 times (7 times including the final.)
  • Mini courses that meet twice per week will be scheduled for a 1½ hour time slot and will meet 12 times (13 times including the final.)
  • We reserve the right to cancel a course if there is insufficient enrollment.
  • All MBA students enrolled in Olin School course work are subject to the student instituted and managed Honor Code regarding academic integrity.
  • Room assignments are tentative. Finalized room assignments will be posted daily during the semester.
  • Semester-long class dates may differ in WebSTAC.
