MBA degree. Recently participated in a finance competition against 8 other MBA programs. Finished 2nd. A four-man team of MBA students from the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management finished second in the Rolanette and Berdon Lawrence Finance Case Competition held on April 17, 2009. The Freeman School of Business at Tulane University hosted the event. Each year since 1997, graduate students from some of the top MBA programs have met to showcase their skills in finance, case analysis, and presentation. Owen students took home the first-place prize in 1997, 2006, and 2008.
