The MBA degree features a core foundation of general management courses and offers several choices of MBA specializations and concentrations. You might be asking, "Is an MBA worth it?" MBA salaries and MBA career paths often surpass those of non-MBA professionals, which more than offsets the cost of tuition. And Vanderbilt consistently places high in MBA rankings from the most trusted ranking institutions while still offering a truly unique Master in Business Administration program.
The Vanderbilt MBA curriculum will help prepare you for success. After your first year, you will head into your summer internship with core tools ready to put into practice. Then after graduation you will be ready to hit the ground running.
Vanderbilt gives you the flexibility to shape your own curriculum to your needs and career goals. And the small-by-design closeness of our community means that you have opportunities to form deeper and more rewarding relationships with our faculty and staff who have helped shape entire industries and fields of study.
