Mike Woodnorth

MBA ’18

I earned my undergraduate degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, where I concentrated in Finance-Real Estate and International Business and was a member of the Investment Banking Network. From there, I moved to Nashville, TN where I spent a year as an analyst for a healthcare investment bank before leaving to help start a healthcare lending group. After working with that group for two years, I was feeling a strong urge to do something more impactful with my career.

As I was considering applying to different MBA programs, I had my eye out for one that would allow me to marry my business background with my lifelong passion for serving others. I was fortunate enough to have a top business school located right in my backyard, but when I learned about the work that Vanderbilt had been doing through the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures, I knew it was where I wanted to be. Between the faculty, coursework and programming provided by the TFC, there have been plenty of firehoses to drink from in my quest to get smart in the social impact space.
