The Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University opened its doors in 1969 to 10 students and 10 faculty members. Today, Owen rates as one of the nation's most prestigious graduate schools of management.

Important factors contributing to the School's high rankings are a small, selectively chosen enrollment of just over 400 and a 10:1 student-faculty ratio - one of the nation's best. As a result, Owen offers an unusually close-knit sense of community. With its spirit of teamwork, combined with challenging academics and stimulating research environment, Owen appeals to students from 41 countries - and to faculty, alumni and employers.

In 1977, The Vanderbilt Board of Trust named the graduate school of management in honor of Ralph ("Peck") and Lulu Owen. The Owen School is forever indebted to Mr. Owen, the former chairman of American Express, for his invaluable contributions to the school's development.

Architecturally, the school represents one of Nashville's most distinctive structures. Designed by Gyo Obata — of St. Louis's Hellmuth, Obata, and Kassabaum — the school encircles large common areas, which include wide hallways and a landscaped courtyard. The library adjoins these common areas, wrapping around one end of the courtyard.
