Academy Workshop

Vanderbilt Business Communication Academy (Mod 2)

Vanderbilt Business Communication Academy is required for all first-year MBA students at Owen Graduate School of Management. The Academy workshops, offered during Mod 2, will primarily focus on the importance of clear, concise, complete, and compelling writing to a successful business career.

In addition to a writing workshop held during Orientation, students will be required to complete two additional sessions–Professional Business Writing and at least one additional session relevant to their individual career and writing development.

First-year MBA students will be given registration priority, before the workshops are opened to second-year MBA students, MSF students, and MAcc students. After the required workshops are completed, first-year MBA students may choose to take additional workshops.

Once they complete the Academy, students are encouraged to add the accomplishment to their resume and LinkedIn profile.
