About the School

Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management opened its doors in 1969 to 10 students and 10 faculty members in a former funeral home. Today, the Owen School enrolls approximately 350 degree-seeking students each year (about 170 MBA students) and is among the top business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The school is widely recognized for its challenging academics, stimulating and innovative research environment, strong student to faculty ratio, and a spirit of teamwork. The school was renamed in 1977 in honor of Lulu and Ralph “Peck” Owen, former chairman of American Express.
