    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.

    Multi-School Events

    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.

    Coffee Chats

    Over summer break, current Darden students will host informal coffee chats in their hometowns and in the cities in which their internships are located. Prospective students are invited to learn about the student experience at Darden over coffee and conversation. Coffee chat dates and locations are posted in early summer.


    Online Events

    Darden hosts several interactive webinars throughout the year so you can learn more about our MBA program, resources and student life. Topics vary each month, and you’ll have several opportunities to talk to current students, admissions committee members, club representatives and members of our career development staff on video and via chat.
