Executive MBA and Americas MBA Class Profile

Vanderbilt Executive MBA students represent a deep diversity of backgrounds, industries and sizes of organizations. Most typically they are:

  • Mid- to senior-level corporate executives who are already proven professionals in their chosen fields and seek to advance their careers within their organizations.
  • Successful entrepreneurs who need to move their business to an even higher level.
  • Professionals—such as accountants, attorneys and physicians—who seek to “manage” instead of “practice.”
  • Managers in technology and scientific industries (such as health care, biotechnology and information systems) where the pace of change makes spending two years away from the job unwise.
