Spring 2022 at WashU
To whom it may concern,
As MBA students, our time is extremely limited during our stay at WashU. We fervently value learning, along with the experiential model the MBA program is built upon, and identify the hindering of that experience as a result of a virtual classroom setting.
Furthermore, as ambassadors and leaders to this university and community, being in-person allows us to more effectively collaborate and influence the mission and course of the business school and university as a whole. Having more accessibility toward opportunities to network with our peers, as well as Olin faculty, positively correlates with our ability to garner high quality internships leading to high quality full-time offers; this outcome is equally important to the business school as it is to its students.
The following list of signatures represents the full time MBA candidates at Olin Business School. This petition expresses our openness and willingness for the implementation of additional health guidelines, such as booster shots and regular testing, with a desire for the university to strongly consider a return to in-person learning as soon as possible.
