A Belgian company was so impressed with the efforts of a group of Olin Business School students at Washington University in St. Louis that the CEO traveled 4,300 miles to campus this spring for further interaction with the students, marking the first time an international practicum partner has visited the school.
A group of eight MBA students, working on a practicum project through Olin’s Center for Experiential Learning (CEL), took on the task of developing a market entry strategy, competitor analysis and website overhaul for Delcampe.net, an online-selling platform based in Brussels.
