The Owen Graduate School of Management has established a board of visitors to act as a strategic partner for the school at Vanderbilt University, Nashville.
The board - leading corporate executives representing a variety of industries, locations and management expertise- will offer mentoring and career opportunities for students as well as ensuring relevance in relation to the needs of national and international business communities.
Jim Bradford, dean of the school, says the board is an essential component in helping the school provide a relevant and meaningful education for the next generation of business leaders.
“That means combining the real-world business perspective of these accomplished individuals with the cutting-edge research and knowledge by our renowned faculty to offer a truly unique and valuable educational experience.”
Each member of the 28-strong board will serve a three-year term.
