Career Platforms

Platforms are designed to help MBA students align their coursework, career search and co-curricular activities in an effort to derive maximum value from their time at Olin. To complete a Platform, students must:
         1. receive a passing grade in the corresponding Platform Industry Seminar,
         2. complete all required “Foundation” courses listed on the corresponding Platform Guide, and
         3. complete at least one of the concentrations listed on the corresponding Platform Guide.
If these requirements are met, the Platform will be listed on the student’s WUSTL transcript.

Platform Requirements and Concentrations
Each of the platforms has several concentrations that allow you to laser focus on a career path.  Click below to read more:

Entrepreneurship  | Marketing |

Operations and Supply Chain Management 

Enrolling in a Career Platform:

  • Just prior to the course registration period for Spring Semester Year 1 (in November), students are asked to indicate to which Platform they intend to commit. The corresponding Industry Seminar course is then added to each student’s Fall Year 1 registration and a passing grade is entered for those who completed Industry Seminar’s requirements. If necessary, course registration priority is given for Platform courses. Students are responsible for registering themselves for all courses – both Platform and non-Platform – via Webstac. 
  • Just prior to the course registration period for Fall Semester Year 2 (in April), students are asked to officially declare the Platform to which they are committing (in some cases, this may be a change from the prior indication.) Taking this step represents a formal commitment to the platform and anticipated completion of its requirements.
  • In almost all cases, students commit to just one Platform. However, on very rare occasions, it may be appropriate for a student to complete two platforms. Students pursuing this exception to normal policy must complete a petition (found below) and have it signed/approved by both Platform Directors. The student is responsible for submitting the approved petition form to the MBA Office.

Petition to withdraw from a Career Platform:

  • Declaring a Career Platform represents a commitment to fulfill all of its requirements, and confers the right to receive, if needed, priority access to platform specific courses and experiential learning opportunities. It also invokes an obligation to complete it. Completion of the MBA graduation requirements, therefore, includes completing all the requirements of a student’s declared Career Platform. If a student decides to withdraw from a Platform, he/she must submit a formal request to withdraw to the Platform Director, clearly explaining the reasons for requesting the withdawal. Withdrawal requests are not automatically approved. 
  • If the request is granted, the student must notify the MBA office to have the Platform officially removed from the student’s transcript.
