St-John began her MBA admissions career at Vanderbilt in 1997, where she oversaw international recruitment.

Previously St-John held roles in marketing, as well as in oil and gas trading. A Nashville native, she holds a Master’s degree and Ph.D. from Vanderbilt. St-John has lived abroad and travelled to 70 countries for both work and pleasure.

“We are excited to welcome Christie back to Vanderbilt,” said Jim Bradford, Dean of the Owen Graduate School. “She combines a vast global experience with a keen understanding and appreciation of what makes a top graduate management program.”

Tami Fassinger, Chief Recruiting Officer for the Owen Graduate School, added that St-John would also play a key role in the school’s larger strategy of aligning incoming student career objectives with placement results 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. We’re glad to have her back on our team.” Fassinger said. “I hired Christie in her first tenure at Vanderbilt. We’ve missed her talent, as well as her international mindset and far-reaching network.”

St-John will handle recruiting and admissions for the full-time MBA and one-year Master of Finance (MSF) programs.

“Vanderbilt has seen a great deal of positive momentum in recent years,” St-John said. “I am pleased to have the opportunity to increase the school’s reach, both in the U.S. and globally.”
