Vanderbilt Executive MBA students are curious, adaptable, self-aware, persistent lifelong learners. Above all, they are team players, self-starters and complex problem-solvers. Each class represents a deep diversity of backgrounds, industries and organization sizes. Most typically they are:
- Mid- to senior-level managers and executives who choose to continue working while advancing their career trajectories.
- Successful entrepreneurs who want to move their businesses to an even higher level.
- Professionals–such as accountants, attorneys and physicians– who seek to manage instead of practice.
- Managers in technology and scientific industries (such as healthcare, biotechnology and information systems) where the pace of change makes spending two years away from the job unrealistic.
