    At Darden, our powerful learning environment equips you with know what, know how and know why — preparing you to meet real-world challenges and lead organizations to high performance.

    Active and intensive, our MBA and Executive Education programs are designed to prepare you for the challenges of leadership at every stage of your career.

    The case method will immerse you in difficult, real-life business situations and ask you to make the decisions. Your ideas will be tested through open dialogues with the faculty, your learning team and your classmates.

    Darden is the second largest case publisher in North America. Our cases are real and relevant, examining challenges faced by organizations such as Google, J. Crew, Zyrtec and Deutsche Bank.

    Darden’s programs also use:

    • Business simulations
    • Feedback sessions
    • Carefully selected readings
    • Videos
    • Peer-mentoring

    • Coaching sessions

    These approaches develop you as an agile decision-maker with an enterprise-wide perspective.

    The best way to master one discipline is to understand them all.

    The integrated Darden curriculum demonstrates how the different disciplines within a business interact to shape the big picture, preparing you to lead leaders across the organization.

    Our active learning approach puts a keen edge on your thinking and prepares you to pursue your life goals — whatever they may be.
