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 about 35 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 for the Fall 2023 cohort are available here. The application period closes June 9, 2023.
