Navigating the ‘New Normal’ Economy at Olin with New Executive Education Courses

15.09.2010
The Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis is launching three new open enrollment certificate programs designed to equip mid- and senior-level managers with the skills and strategies needed to meet the challenges of the ‘new normal’ economy.

Taught by Olin’s renowned world-class faculty, these timely deep dives in finance, leadership and supply chain management are geared for busy professionals who value leading-edge, in-depth and relevant management training that is immediately applicable in the workplace.

Certificate programs in financial skills, leadership and supply chain management are offered in two-day modules over a three- to six-month period. Designed to maximize learning and accommodate demanding schedules of managers, the courses are held in two locations: Washington University’s on-campus, state-of-the-art Charles F. Knight Executive Education and Conference Center in St. Louis and Olin’s executive education facilities in Kansas City.

“Olin graduate certificates add distinction and prestige to the resume of any business professional, manager, and executive,” says Panos Kouvelis,PhD, senior associate dean and director of executive programs at Olin.

“Participants not only acquire the certified business acumen, but also gain an enduring network of useful contacts,” says Kouvelis, the Emerson Distinguished Professor of Operations and Manufacturing Management.

“The flexible and personally customized certificate design allows a top quality educational experience that integrates seamlessly with personal short-term and long-term goals. Our certificates are the fastest and highest return-on-investment pathway to accelerated career growth,” he says.

Enrollment is open now for programs beginning in September and October.

Financial Skills for General Managers
This program equips managers in functional areas outside of finance with the financial literacy and analytical tool box to understand financial metrics, measure value and interact with confidence on finance-related issues.

Tuition: $8,800. Application deadline: Sept. 15.

Leadership Essentials for Managers: Enhancing Impact, Influence and Results
This program – best suited for managers with a minimum of three years of experience leading individuals and teams – develops competencies to engage and motivate high-performance teams that work across organizational boundaries for high-impact results.

Tuition: $10,500. Application deadline: Oct. 15.

Supply Chain Strategy & Management

This program helps managers cultivate a strategic understanding of the supply chain system; apply lean principles to manage supply chain processes, inventories and lead times; understand state-of-the-art practices in logistics and distribution; and execute supply chain initiatives in alignment with company strategy.

Tuition: $9,900. Program will be offered as five, two-day modules, Spring 2011.

Discounts are available for companies sending three or more to the same certificate program and Open Enrollment Scholarships are available to nonprofits, small companies, and entrepreneurs.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
