What Students Say

“I am in a lot of strategy and staff meetings where we look at financials and make business decisions. Now, I am better able to understand the financials and participate more in the decisions. The program has far exceeded my expectations.”

Courtney Damon
Vanderbilt Executive MBA, 2014

“My boss told me that the board’s decision (to promote me to president) was heavily impacted by my choice to get my MBA from Vanderbilt. Even in such a short time after I started the program, they had already seen improvement in the maturity and quality of my work.”

Enderson Miranda
Vanderbilt Americas MBA, 2015

“I directly attribute my promotion to things I’ve learned at Vanderbilt. As a woman in a tech environment, that extra bit of confidence that you know as much as they do makes a huge difference during my day-to-day interactions with colleagues.”

Adrianne Mayshar
Vanderbilt Executive MBA, 2016

“The Vanderbilt Executive MBA program is highly relevant. I experienced tremendous returns for my company, even after only one semester at Owen. I have decided that the program is not expensive, but engaging in business without it is.”

Jeff Williams

“The program prepared me to transfer to new functions by broadening my skills in areas where I had gaps and broadening my perspective in general. It also built confidence that I could take on tough, new challenges and succeed. The program was a good investment for my company and a great one for me.”

Rahul Mehta
Vanderbilt Americas MBA, 2013

“I have had a return on investment. I was offered a new role – it was a level change of 3-4 steps. I know my contributions, confidence and initiative with starting the program signaled my enhanced abilities.”

Jared Johnson

“The network has already paid off. Whether it’s asking for advice on best practices, making business connections or gaining knowledge about a different industry, I now have a huge network of people to tap into that are willing to help.”

Ruth Elliot
Vanderbilt Executive MBA, 2017


“Halfway through the program I received a significant promotion. Peers and supervisors commented that my value to the business increased dramatically – specifically my ability to operate cross-functionally within the organization and link separate parts of the business in order to deliver improved results.”
