  • Overview

    Darden Receptions

    Darden Receptions are a unique opportunity to personally connect with several members of the Darden community, including admissions committee members, faculty and alumni in your city. We encourage you to come to the event ready to ask questions and socialize with members of Darden's dynamic network. Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will be served, and guests are always welcome.

    Darden Receptions for our MBA, MBA for Executives and Global MBA for Executives are hosted throughout the fall.

    In the summer and throughout the fall, Darden travels with several partner schools and organizations to cities around the world so students can learn more about the MBA admissions process and Darden. You will have the opportunity to meet admissions representatives or Darden alumni at each of these events.

    Current partners include The Consortium, Forté Foundation, Management Leadership for Tomorrow, Service Academy Career Conference, Riordan, MBA2U and NBMBAA.
