• As a student in Darden’s Executive MBA (EMBA) and Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) formats, you won’t wait until graduation to apply concepts and ideas from class to your job — you will do so from the earliest days in the program and throughout the 21-month program.

    As our students remind us, the saying about “learn it on Saturday, apply it on Monday” rings true and translates into an immediate return on investment for you and your employer.

    By learning in real time, you witness your own evolution from a good manager to a great leader. Week by week, the new ideas, perspectives and approaches you learn can be applied immediately in the workplace. Specific challenges you confront on the job will often serve as the basis for classroom discussions and assignments, and experiences of your professors and fellow classmates can provide solutions.
