At Olin, we seek a student population that is diverse across a number of important dimensions, and we aspire to recruit students who offer diversity of thought and ideas. Most employers are equally eager to attract these diverse candidates.
The Weston Career Center is committed to support all students – including underrepresented minorities, veterans, women, LGBTQ and individuals with disabilities – in attaining their career aspirations.
Professional Associations for Women and Minorities
Olin has chapters of the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA), the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) and National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA). These organizations encourage the development and advancement of diversity candidates in business. Members support one another’s academic and career development.
Olin is a member of the Forté Foundation, a consortium of major corporations and top business schools that has become a powerful change agent in educating and directing talented women toward leadership roles in business.
Olin is also a founding member of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, the country’s preeminent organization promoting diversity and inclusion in American business. The Consortium has built a 44-year legacy of fostering inclusion and changing the ethnic and cultural face of American business.
The Olin Diversity Council is the MBA student organization that brings together minority students for the purposes of sharing academic and professional cross-functional experiences, fostering personal and career development.
Students with Disabilities
The WCC provides accommodations for any student seeking assistance during a career coaching appointment or an on-campus interview or recruiting event in accordance with the WUSTL Disability Resources policy. Counseling with a designated career coach who is knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of this population is available.
