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 name for a weekly, 45-year tradition on campus: drinks, food and connection; annually, we bring Closing Bell to alumni and friends in key cities. This popular gathering gives students, professors, staff and alumni a time to come together, network and learn. Closing Bell is just one example of a tight-knit, lifelong community that connects Vanderbilt Owen students for life.

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.
