Alumni Events & Activities

CityOwen events are put on by the Development and Alumni Relations Office for donors and key volunteers to Owen. These events are held in different cities and provide the opportunity to receive updates from the Dean, meet faculty, and hear from key industry leaders where they live.

Closing Bell
Closing Bell is our rebranded “kegs in the Courtyard” weekly tradition of networking at Owen, and we bring this spirit of comradery to key cities—with a chance for alumni to mingle and reconnect over drinks and snacks and to meet newcomers to Owen as well.

Educating Executives Learning Events: Sponsored by Vanderbilt Executive Programs
Educating Executives events are held in Nashville and select Southeast cities. These programs offer both a continuous learning topic and a chance to network with local alumni.  We ask your help inviting local business leaders in your area to join us who might benefit from degree or non-degree programs offered at Owen.

Opening Bell
Opening Bell is the newest opportunity for Owen alumni to routinely connect on campus. This quarterly breakfast meeting features a speaker or continuing education topic, along with the chance to network in Nashville with alumni, faculty, staff and prospective students you may know.
