LEARNING STARTS IN NEW HARMONY… Year One: See the Difference Day One Each year, the incoming Executive MBA class begins its Vanderbilt experience with an intensive one-week residency at a historic retreat in New Harmony, Indiana. But don’t let the serene name fool you. In this intimate, bucolic setting, you will receive an intensive and rigorous immersion into the Executive MBA curriculum and Leadership Development Program. You’ll also begin working with your colleagues in a cross-functional “C-Team”—the group you’ll work with throughout your time in the program. Most important, the week-in-residence provides time away from the daily demands of your professional and personal lives, giving you ample opportunity to acclimate to your new role as “student” and begin forming the bonds with peers and others in the Vanderbilt community that will last a lifetime. Your first year jump-starts in New Harmony, building a strong core foundation in management essentials, advanced quantitative skills and new perspectives on leadership. You’ll quickly notice the difference your new knowledge is making each week in your daily work—and how you’re able to apply that knowledge to solve problems, handle new challenges and gain a perspective on existing ones.
