Another year has passed for the Olin Blog. Now that the students have left and the pace is slowing, it’s time for our annual look back at our top stories.
The most-read story was about someone from our community, an alumnus, who died in an avalanche. The other popular stories were of happier news: Olin’s full-time MBA broke into the Top 25 in the Financial Times ranking, we honored our distinguished alumni, the school earned triple accreditation and a beloved career coach retired.
Here are the Top 8 Olin Blog stories published in 2021:
