Olin Expands Exec. Ed. to Kansas City
The Washington University in St. Louis Olin School of Business is starting an Executive MBA program in Kansas City in April 2010, the school announced Wednesday.
The first year of the two-year program takes place in Kansas City, where students attend core classes on alternating weekends. The second year takes students to the school’s main campus in St. Louis, with theme-based classes one weekend a month.
Panos Kouvelis, Ph.D., Senior Associate Dean and professor of operations and manufacturing management is the Director of Executive Programs, had this to say of the launch:
“We are very excited about offering our programs to the Kansas City business community. Professionals from around the country and around the globe attend our courses in St. Louis and Shanghai and now we can include our friends across the state in our growing network of business leaders.”
According to the school’s website, the new program balances work, family and school, accommodating the busy schedules of working professionals.
Information sessions will be held in Kansas City over the next few months. For more information, visit olin.wustl.edu/ExecEd.
