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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
