We offer the same premium services, career planning and resources to all students. Here’s what’s different for BSBAs:
Career advisors specialize in delivering one-on-one career planning strategies. BSBA Students
They’re market-savvy professionals who are passionate about helping students chart their career path. Not just any career – the right career. The one that will allow students to apply the research-driven thinking they’ve learned at Olin in ways that will transform them – and the companies they choose to join.
- Management 250A – Building Your Career Foundation: Techniques and Strategies, a sophomore required course, is designed to teach tools for lifelong career management. It begins with self-assessment and clarification of career goals and continues with job search strategies and tactics, such as résumé writing, interview preparation, self-introduction and networking.
- Management 450A – The Internship in Business course is an option for those students whose employers require that they be compensated via credit and/or a transcript notation.
Student Club Engagement
Olin student clubs and the Weston Career Center work closely together to provide workshops and seminars for Olin and Washington University students. They co-sponsor, promote and host sessions on such topics as preparing for career fairs, case interview techniques, internship success tips and personal finance. Clubs that work with the WCC include:
- Delta Sigma Pi
- Alpha Kappa Psi
- Female Association for Business (FAB)
- Net Impact
- Olin Business Council
- Sports Management Club
- Wash U Consulting Association
- Wash U Investment Fund
The career services staff works hard to keep in touch with alumni around the world. Olin alumni are on campus frequently to conduct mock interviews, serve as guest speakers and program panelists, and act as mentors through the Weston Career Center's ProNet contact database or social media (ie., LinkedIn).
