Business of VU
The Business of VU program began in 2017 as a course for faculty, staff, and students to learn about the business operations of the university and higher education as a whole. A cohort of 30 participants are carefully selected through an application process. Participants are selected based on interest level, background of experience, and commitment to Vanderbilt University.
They learn from a diverse set of presenters who are among the most integral in making Vanderbilt a university rooted in excellence. Topics include
- a higher education overview,
- VU governance,
- global impacts on higher education,
- the economics of Vanderbilt,
- and many more.
Applications generally become available in the spring and are due June 1.
