What Recruiters Say

“They consistently hit the ground running.”


EmersonWe have had a long and successful partnership with the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management and have hired many of their top MBAs. We find their students to be the experienced candidates we seek with the professionalism we need.  Our most successful hire to date is David Farr - Chairman, President and CEO of Emerson – an Owen alum from the class of 1981.

mattel_logo We have been recruiting Owen students for more than five years because they are prepared to meet Mattel’s business needs. The quality of candidates is outstanding; they are ambitious team players and prepared to take on new business challenges. When they arrive at Mattel, they make an immediate impact on the businesses that they are assigned, and demonstrate commitment for the long term.
