Campus Visits

See why our place is the right place for you.

Time and again, prospective MS Finance students, who become Owen students remark, "my visit to campus had a huge impact on my decision!" Check out our Virtual Visit for just a hint of why they say this. Then plan a visit to our campus to see for yourself.

What makes the difference?
Maybe it's because of the small intimate class size as well student/faculty ratio.

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.

When to Visit Campus

Visiting Owen and meeting faculty, staff and current 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.

An organized campus visit allows you to attend class, have lunch with a current student, have the opportunity to be considered for an interview with a member of the MS Finance Admissions Committee, and attend a small group discussion with our career management staff.
