HISTORY


Olin Business School is one of the country's leading research-oriented business schools. Located in the heart of the Midwest, Olin's degree programs are known for their demanding scholastic standards and emphasis on experiential learning.
Washington University in St. Louis, founded in 1853, has maintained a business school since 1917 and awarded its first undergraduate business degree in 1919. The school added an MBA program in 1950, a doctoral program in 1958, an executive MBA in 1983 and in 2002 a Shanghai-based Executive MBA offered in partnership with Fudan University. 

In 1988, the business school was named in honor of John M. Olin, chairman of the Olin Corp and a major benefactor of Washington University, in recognition of a gift from the John M. Olin Foundation. 

Mahendra Gupta, PhD, became dean of Olin Business School on July 1, 2005, succeeding Stuart I. Greenbaum, PhD, who served as dean from 1995 to 2005. Lending their expertise, wisdom and strong endorsement to Olin are members of the National Council. 

Olin is fully accredited by AACSB International — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Fifty-nine faculty (excluding adjuncts, visitors and lecturers) are engaged in teaching and research. Of these, 32 are tenured and over half were appointed in the last five to seven years. New faculty come from universities across the nation including Stanford, Yale and Carnegie-Mellon. There are 26 endowed professorships.

Olin Business School's endowment at market value has grown from just over $1 million in 1980, to $236 million at the end of March 2012. Annual Fund giving for the year ending June 30, 2012, was $3.8 million. Total gifts to Olin have averaged almost $10 million annually over the past five years.
