Finance Concentration

Owen is recognized worldwide for its Finance faculty, who have received many awards for their research and teaching and also serve on prestigious editorial boards. Corporate recruiters know that Vanderbilt MBAs receive rigorous training that enables them to accept challenging assignments after graduation. As a result, the school traditionally turns out more finance graduates than any other single discipline.

Owen's Finance courses provide students with a strong grasp of the fundamental techniques required for the practice of financial management. Relying upon our extensive experience in the classroom, we continually update the finance curriculum to incorporate the latest developments and important innovations in the markets as well as academic research.
