Abby Vidmer has been named the Director of Recruiting for Young Professional Programs at Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management.
Vidmer will spearhead recruiting efforts for the Master of Marketing, Master of Finance, Master of Accountancy, and Accelerator programs. She will focus on advancing these programs while maintaining the culture and quality standards for Vanderbilt Business.
“I am so delighted to join the team at Owen,” says Vidmer. “I am very excited to oversee the recruitment strategy of the specialized masters programs and also ensure that students feel at home here.”
Vidmer comes to Vanderbilt after 3 years at Davidson College, where she served as Assistant Dean of Admissions.
“Each of the 4 different programs I work with offers their own distinct advantages,” says Vidmer. “I can’t wait to help students connect with the programs that will best suit their interests and career paths.”
Vidmer received her BS in Business Administration from Bucknell University, with a concentration in Accounting. She expects to complete her Master of Professional Studies in Higher Education Administration from Georgetown in August.
“I look forward to strategizing the way that we recruit, and I can’t wait to see how the different programs progress,” says Vidmer.
Outside of work, Vidmer likes to try out new restaurants, enjoy live music, and cheer on her favorite college football team, the Penn State Nittany Lions.
