The Board Fellows program has absolutely been the best part of my MBA experience.  The knowledge I gained through it offers significant value to the rest of my career, and I was able to help our local community while learning these lessons.  This program is at the top of my resume now, and I would highly recommend anyone on the fence like I was before applying to submit your application and see where this takes you! ” –Brad Hansell, 2020 student participant

“The Olin/United Way Board Fellows Program helped me contribute in real-time to a community focused non-profit while giving me ample opportunity to grow personally and professionally, I can’t think of an experience I gained more from at Olin.” -Shelby Zafiropoulos, 2020 student participant
