This review is for Owen

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2015

Experience during the program

While Owen stands as a business school that doesn't necessarily have the brand recognition of other top programs, it more than makes that up in the personalized approach it takes to education, recruiting, and building an unmatched culture.

I was attracted to studying in Nashville, which is among the hottest places to be right now, and loved all of the unique elements the location offered. Live music, SEC football, and a thriving (yet affordable!) social scene helped all of us fall in love with the setting.

As far as the program, culture really dominated for all of us. As a small school with a very personalized focus, it meant that all of my professors and classmates knew me as an individual. We formed deep relationships that continue to carry forward.

I would recommend Owen for applicants who are confident in their abilities, and intend to use soft skills. Because of its size, Owen does not boast the same volume of recruiters, so you'll want to be comfortable with either the companies who do come (and there are more than enough) or put in some effort to find companies where Owen is not a core program.
