The entering MBA class of 2018 features two students who are concurrently enrolled in the MD program at WashU. While a formal joint degree agreement does not yet exist between the Medical School and Olin, dedicated students like Taleef Khan and Ramin Lalezari can successfully balance the demands of both programs.
Taleef and Ramin will spend 2016-17 academic year focused on the MBA curriculum, before returning to the Med School campus to complete their studies in medicine (while mixing in any remaining b-school coursework along the way to the completion of both degrees).
Taleef and Ramin have been enthusiastic during their first weeks as MBA students, recently writing to me:
“Ramin and I wanted to thank you and everyone in the office for an unbelievable orientation week. From all the free food to the incredibly educational lectures, this has been a great kick-off to our year at the business school. We are really looking forward to the year ahead.
Additionally, we would love to help out on the recruitment end of the “unofficial” dual degree. We will continue to send more med students your way. In the meantime, we wanted to share a picture with you; it’s already one of my favorites. Please let us know if there are any other ways we can help, we’d be more than happy to do so. “
We want to welcome Talif and Ramin to the Olin community. It is great to have you here with us.
