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.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
