From the Dean: 

Campus may be quiet, but activity at the Owen School never slows down. The Vanderbilt Accelerator Summer Business Institute kicked off this week, bringing more than 50 undergraduate students into our building (see a video about Accelerator). Throughout June, they're gaining hands-on consulting experience with companies such as Goodwill and Warner Music Nashville. Also this summer, we recently announced the launch of the Center for Health Care Market Innovation, which will be a hub for the evolution of health care markets (story below). As for our rising second-year MBA students, they are tackling internships around the country. Be sure to follow the school's social media accounts (links below) for an inside look at internships at places like, Nissan, Amazon and many, many more.
