EMBA Overview

Ready to Make Yourself a More Valuable Player?

If you’re wondering whether it’s the right time to pursue an Executive MBA, here are a few things to consider.

At Vanderbilt, you can earn a world-class MBA that will open doors wherever you go.

Along with making a lasting difference in your career, you’ll make an immediate difference in your organization.

You’ll develop leadership and strategic skills that go beyond what you can expect to gain in most other programs.

You’ll become part of a supportive network that stays with you for life.

And you can do it all on schedule that works for you. You can even choose between two different tracks in your second year— an Executive Edge Track or the Global Immersion Track.

Compare Tracks.


Kyla Terhune MD

Program Director, General Surgery Residency; Vice-Chair for Education, Section of Surgical Sciences, Vanderbilt University

Given her wide-ranging responsibilities — overseeing more than 70 surgical residents, among them — it made sense to Dr. Kyla Terhune “to see what I could learn from the business world.” She concluded that an MBA could give her the “translational knowledge” she needed to lead educational initiatives within her organization and better understand the strategic organizational behavior and human resources issues that connect to her job.

Reggie Crenshaw

Principal, Crenshaw & Associates Consulting Group

Reggie Crenshaw chose the Global Immersion Track for several reasons. First, he believed that a deeper understanding of international business would help him better serve the clients of his consulting practice. Second, he reasoned it would be easier on his wife and family (he had a two-year-old boy at home) for him to be gone four times for a long week than for him to commute from Memphis to Nashville every other weekend.

Brian T. McCann

Associate Professor of Strategic Management

The winner of multiple teaching awards at Owen, Brian McCann is an authority in the field of strategic management.
