The University of Virginia Darden School of Business is one of the world’s leading business schools — ranked the #1 education experience by The Economist (2012). Darden offers three formats of its MBA degree program (MBA, MBA for Executives and Global MBA for Executives), as well as Ph.D. and Executive Education programs.


Darden delivers the world’s best management education experience through its high-engagement learning environment, which is distinguished by three key elements:

  • The case study method immerses students in real-life business situations spanning industries, countries, and disciplines and develops them into complete leaders who are ready for anything.

  • Darden’s top-ranked faculty – consistently recognized by The Princeton Review and Financial Times – is deeply committed to the professional and personal development of students and executives. Darden professors create a high-energy, transformational experience in the classroom and advance innovative thinking in business through research.

  • The tight-knit community, comprised of students, faculty, staff, and alumni, is one of the world’s most collaborative. Darden graduates from a global network of more than 14,000 and remains connected to the School throughout their lifetimes, giving back through volunteerism, philanthropy, and academics.

Darden is the graduate business school of the University of Virginia, founded in Charlottesville in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence. The School’s mission is to improve the world by developing and inspiring responsible leaders and by advancing knowledge.
