OWEN EXEC MBA AND STUDENTS ADJUST TO GREAT RECESSION
VENTURE NASHVILLE CONNECTIONS
Feb 22, 2010
The Owen Executive MBA program is adjusting to recession-borne pressures by not letting tuition rise too high and offering a class schedule that enables students to miss less work. TAMI FASSINGER, Owen's associate dean of executive programs, told VNC this morning that leaders of the Vanderbilt University Owen Graduate School of Management moved quickly in 2009 to survey current and prospective students to determine how they are coping with the recession and new strains on employers, workplaces and families.
As a result, Owen reshaped its EMBA format to eliminate the need for EMBA students to miss every-other Friday at work to meet the requirements of the intensive two-year program.
