We offer the same premium services, career planning and resources to all students. Here’s what’s different for MBAs:
Career advisors specialize in delivering one-on-one career planning strategies and bring many years of industry experience to each coaching session. MBA Students

faculty to help bring relevant speakers to the industry mini presentations, where you will gain foundational knowledge necessary to be competitive.
Professional Career Development
The Weston Career Center works with you – before, during and after graduation. Even before you arrive on campus, the Weston Career Center team talks with MBA candidates to understand personal and career goals and begin to align students with key alumni and corporate contacts, thereby helping to lay the foundation for a summer internship that’s still a year down the road.
Once on campus, you will have the opportunity to research career options in a personalized, customized job search as you meet with one of our career industry specialists to refine your interviewing, networking and personal selling skills.
Our practical, disciplined approach drives students to continually demonstrate, examine, practice and refine their skills. It also includes strategic stops to reflect and recalibrate, which are important in the development of leaders and change agents of the future.
Student clubs also help cultivate Olin’s network. Olin Finance Club, Energy Club, Health and Life Sciences, Young Leaders, Strategy and Consulting Club, Supply Chain Management, and Net Impact all collaborate with the Weston Career Center to find ways to reach out to the business community.
The WCC Student Advisory Board (SAB) comprises of first- and second-year MBA candidates who meet regularly with the WCC leadership team to pass along ideas, advice, concerns and compliments to the WCC. The SAB works with the Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA), clubs and informal networks to seek student feedback. Some recent initiatives included LinkedIn Power User seminar, peer advising program and Countdown to the Conference prep sessions.
The career services staff work 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 (e.g., LinkedIn).
Our MBA interns and graduates are successfully employed in a variety of organizations, including financial services, manufacturing, technology and consulting. Median base salary for the graduating Class of 2012 was $95,000, and 96 percent of those students seeking employment reported accepting a job (90 days post graduation). See MBA Employment Statistics
