Washington University in St. Louis established a business school in 1917 and awarded its first undergraduate business degree in 1919. In 1988, the business school was named in honor of John M. Olin, chairman of Olin Corporation and a major benefactor of Washington University.
The school added an MBA program in 1950, a doctoral program in 1958, and an Executive MBA program in 1983. In 2002 Olin partnered with Fudan University to offer a Shanghai-based Executive MBA degree. In recent years, the business school has developed degree programs with partner universities in India, South Korea, Singapore, Israel, Germany, and Spain.
Olin Business School uses two of Prendo’s simulations, ‘Pactio’ and ‘Schola’, on a regular basis in MBA, EMBA programs, and in executive programs.
“Prendo’s Schola and Pactio simulations are excellent tools for students to experience the challenges of dynamically managing a project; I consistently get very positive feedback about the value these simulations add to my courses.”
