Campus Visits

See why our place is the right place for you.

Time and again, prospective MBA students who become Owen students say, "The visit sealed it!" Check out our Visit Vanderbilt video for just a hint of why they say this. Then schedule a visit to our campus to see for yourself.

What makes the difference?

Maybe it's because we treat you like an individual—not a number—from the moment we meet you or we help you focus on your career success from the moment you apply.

Perhaps it's our beautiful campus in a city that's simply a great place to live. Maybe it's the incredible students you meet when you step into Owen.

Could it be the exposure to renowned, yet friendly faculty who welcome you into their classrooms? Or maybe it's the chance to learn more about our curriculum that's simultaneously rigorous and flexible. Take your pick.

The Owen experience is all this and more. Come to our campus and see for yourself.

Arrange a Campus Visit

We are delighted that you are considering visiting the Vanderbilt University campus in Nashville, Tennessee. Visiting Owen and meeting current faculty and students is a great way to determine whether Vanderbilt is the right business school for you. Graduate business education represents a large investment both in terms of time and money. You are wise to research schools thoroughly.


A campus visit offers you an insider's view and is the best way to gain a realistic impression of life as an Owen student. You're welcome to visit our campus at any time during normal business hours, but we recommend that you join us for an official campus visit to get the full campus experience.

What I like most about Owen is that everyone, from the admissions, faculty and career management staff, makes you feel important and special and not just like another number.

I was convinced that coming to Owen was a good choice but it was when I met the student body that I fell in love with Owen. Then my decision was solidified.
