  • No evening classes will be held the week of November 24-28, 2014.

  • 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 WebSTAC.
  • 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.
  • Please refer to the MBA Elective schedule for day course offerings. Course enrollment priority is given to the MBA students during the first two weeks after registration begins. If necessary, PMBA students are subject to removal from MBA courses during this period. After that point enrollment is granted on a first come first served basis.
  • 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.)
  • 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.)
  • Due to high demand, students attempting to enroll in all short courses (weekend and week-long courses) will be directed to a waitlist. This will allow the Registrar to manage the demand, ensuring that the proper priority is given. PMBA students will receive priority enrollment in short courses listed below. MBA students will receive enrollment priority in short courses listed in the MBA 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 Beyond this two week period, registration priority is no longer applicable; any available seats in a course are on a first come, first served basis through the normal enrollment process in WebSTAC.
  • MGT 521 will meet every Saturday during the fall semester from 8:00am-12:00pm except on the following dates: September 6, October 18, November 8, November 29 and December 6. The October 4 class (Elevator pitch day) will meet from 8:00am-1:00pm (no excused absences). Final presentations will be held on Dec. 13 from 8:00am-1:00pm (no excused absences).
  • FIN 560A, MGT 502 and MGT 550G are cross-listed with BSBA classes. MGT 550G will follow the BSBA calendar throughout the semeter. FIN 560A and MGT 502 will follow the PMBA calendar.
  • All students enrolled in Olin School course work are subject to the School's Code of Conduct regarding academic integrity.
  • Room assignments are tentative. Updated room assignments will be posted when classes begin.
  • Evening classes are held from 6:15-9:15 pm.
