“The experience of learning from and building relationships with Olin professors, Brookings scholars, and thought leaders is second to none. Through these relationships and experiences, I learned about and had the opportunity to discuss innovative and timeless ideas about improving public leadership…It was a transformational experience.” – MS-Leadership Graduate

To receive credit you must submit a course assessment and pay the corresponding assessment fee for each course you wish to be granted MS-Leadership credit. Applicable courses are determined on a case-by-case basis.
