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: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
