The event, the culmination of 20 months of study and class work for the students, was the Kansas City program’s first graduation and also marked the first time that all three of Olin’s EMBA programs graduated at the same time and in the same place. Of the 93 candidates who received diplomas, 55 were from the Shanghai class, 30 from the St. Louis class and eight from the Kansas City class.
