Pretty sure they place well in the Midwest region. I know their MBA is highly regarded and reputed. Overall, probably a really solid school with a great Midwest reputation and probably, lesser known in NYC. Just my 2 cents though

WUSTL is a great research university. Olin is actually one of their lesser known schools but still it has a good reputation in the Midwest and the Northeast.

I work with a couple guys from Olin. Both are solid

Not as good as Vanderbilt

Olin's BSBA program is actually very strong and underrated. If you ranked schools solely on placement % and starting salary, it would rank among the top 5 best undergrad business programs in the country. It's MBA is relatively strong, but not considered a powerhouse, and its business SMP's are also relatively strong (as far as SMP's are concerned). Definitely a strong reputation in the Midwest and in NY.

Which I-banks hire the 21%? Make sure the firms you want to work for recruit at the school before you enroll...

For MBA programs...

A.G. Edwards and Sons Inc.
Citigroup
Credit Suisse First Boston
Lehman Brothers, Inc.

For BSBA programs add...
Goldman Sachs
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.
Merrill Lynch & Company, Inc.

I wonder why their BSBA program has better investment banks than the MBA program.

IIRC they have one of the best MSF degrees in the country, couldn't comment on placement

WUSTL mba is garbage

Apr 24, 2014

agree with the above post. I am not sure about their MSF program.

Apr 24, 2014

i'm just getting sick of your nonsense suck-up comments. if the program has <30 people, why would you stupidly use 19% instead of 5 or 6 students directly?

WUSTL and Vandy run strong and respectable MSF programs, but it would be a moment of disaster and disgrace if either program accepts you in your current shape..

Why all the hate? Just because I called you out?

Apr 24, 2014

I haven't looked at his other posts, but to be fair here it looks like the 19% comes straight from the school.

These stats actually look quite poor.

  1. Income didn't move;
  2. Acceptance rates continue to rise;
  3. IB placements collapsed;
  4. Wash U itself listed as major employer (suspicion that's how it got to 100% placement).

All in all, not blown away.

Or maybe because they didn't want IB?
