Former Tuck Associate Admissions Director to Lead Admissions at Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management
Vanderbilt University alumnus Christie St-John is returning to Nashville to direct admissions at the Owen Graduate School of Management, the school announced this week. St-John has served as senior associate director of admissions and recruiting at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business since 2004. She will assume her new role at Owen beginning October 1st.
St-John, who holds a master’s degree and Ph.D. from Vanderbilt, is also a veteran of the university’s MBA admissions department. She began her career in admissions there in 1997, overseeing international recruitment.
“We are excited to welcome Christie back to Vanderbilt,” Jim Bradford, dean of the Owen Graduate School, said in a statement. “She combines a vast global experience with a keen understanding and appreciation of what makes a top graduate management program.”
St-John has lived abroad and traveled to 70 countries for both work and pleasure, and before working in MBA admissions, she held roles in marketing and oil and gas trading.
In her new position, the Nashville native will play an important role in the school’s larger strategy of helping students achieve career and placement objectives on a broad geographic scale. “Christie’s ability to relate to our global talent pool is invaluable to where we’re going as a school,” Tami Fassinger, Owen chief recruiting officer, said in a statement. “We’re glad to have her back on our team.”
St-John will be responsible for recruiting and admissions for Owen’s full-time MBA and one-year Master of Finance programs.
