ABOUT THE DARDEN SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

The University of Virginia Darden School of Business is one of the world’s leading business schools, offering MBA, MBA for Executives, Global MBA for Executives, Ph.D. and Executive Education programs. The Darden experience is unique because of the combination of three key elements:

  • Case Study Method: In contrast to a lecture-based approach to education, Darden class time is spent discussing cases about actual business problems and solutions.
  • World’s Best MBA Teaching Faculty: Ranked #1 by The Princeton Review and the Financial Times, Darden professors put students first and advance innovative thinking in business.
  • Tight-knit Community: Students, faculty, staff and alumni join in an atmosphere of collaboration and community not often found in top business schools.
