• Rated as one of the strongest MBA alumni networks by Poets & Quants (2011), our graduates are an integral part of the Darden community. They understand and appreciate the value of the Darden MBA and are known for being highly accessible to students and fellow alumni in the job search process.

    Darden Alumni & the Job Search Process

    Your network will consist of more than 15,000 Darden alumni in 90 countries around the world. The highly collaborative and tight-knit community that you will find as an Executive MBA (EMBA) or Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) student continues after graduation, and our alumni are eager to give back to students in any way that they can.

    While many students will stay with their current companies, the vast majority of students are either seeking a promotion, planning to start a new business or thinking about a career switch. The Darden alumni network is invaluable to students thinking about one of these paths.

    Alumni are happy to talk to you about their company’s culture, give you recruiting advice, coach you through the interview experience and connect you with other professionals in your area of interest. As a student, you can depend on our alumni to respond to your call every time.
