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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
