How Clinton Became a Wiser Counsel

He had already earned his law degree and established himself on an upwardly mobile career path. But until he joined Vanderbilt's Executive MBA program, Uri Clinton had never been outside the United States. His International Residency trip to China, during his second year, was "an eye-opening experience," in more ways than one. "The exposure I gained to a global perspective," he says, "has been invaluable to my career"—a career that now includes various international projects.

The experience is also an apt symbol of the broader horizons and passport to new opportunities afforded by the Executive MBA program. Within six months of graduating from the program, Uri was promoted at his company from Senior Attorney to Vice President of Legal Affairs, with a substantial increase in responsibility. That same year, he was also recognized by his community, named by a local magazine to the list of "Top 40 under 40." Ten months later, Clinton accepted a substantial position as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of a publicly traded company.
Since 1969, Vanderbilt Business has been building a new kind of business leader. The kind who aren't afraid to challenge old ways of thinking. Who don't think they've heard it all before (or pretend they will ever know it all). The persistent kind. People who are ready to work harder and dig deeper, and who put ideas over ego and performance over pedigree.

We attract the kind who are looking not only to succeed in the business world but to shape it for the better. While also shaping their skills, their careers and their futures. All while shaping our own community in ways that make a lasting difference for themselves and others.

You'll find stories here of Vanderbilt Businesspeople, people much like you, who have done all these and more.

We invite you to become a World Shaper yourself. Or to recruit one. And, most of all, to read how Vanderbilt Business has become such a richly shaping experience for so many. Close
