• Darden’s case method EMBA classes mirror the way business is done — across functional units within the firm, across firms within the value chain, and around the globe. This integration across disciplines helps you develop the CEO's enterprise perspective, which is one reason the Financial Times named Darden the #1 business school in the world in general management.

    The EMBA program's ten core courses cut across four themed terms (made up of residencies and distance learning) and include an Action Learning component which requires students to apply material from the program to their professional environment. The “Enterprise Perspective” course is designed to reinforce the habit of looking at a management decision from the CEO's point of view and to develop the leadership skills needed to implement it effectively. The “ Professional Advancement Course” is designed to provide the strategic perspectives that you will need to advance your career.
