  • Spring A dates: Monday, January 13 - Thursday, February 27, 2014
  • Spring B dates: Monday, March 17 - Thursday, April 24, 2014
  • No classes Monday, January 20, 2014 (Martin Luther King holiday)
  • Travel Week: March 3-7, 2014
  • Spring Break: March 10-14, 2014
  • Spring A dates include exams.
  • Spring B course final exam dates are during regular class period April 28-May 1, 2014.
  • Semester-length course final exam dates are during regular class period April 29-May 1 & May 5, 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. 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. 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, the 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 Beyond this two week period, registration priority is no longer applicable; any available seats in a course are on a first come, first served basis through the normal enrollment process in WebSTAC.
  • 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.
  • ACCT 507 and FIN 536 are cross-listed. Students may register under ACCT or FIN but not both.
  • The following courses are also cross-listed with BSBA courses: ACCT 500G, MGT 502, MGT 550C, MGT 550I and OMM 554. MGT 550I will follow the BSBA calendar and meet as scheduled during Travel Week, March 3-7, 2014. All other cross-listed courses will follow the PMBA calendar.
  • 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.)
  • We reserve the right to cancel a course if there is insufficient enrollment.
  • All students enrolled in Olin School course work are subject to the School's Code of Conduct 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.
