A Powerful Network

  • Darden’s tight-knit alumni network — comprised of our alumni, faculty, staff and corporate partners — is one of the world’s most collaborative and responsive.

    Thanks to a relatively small class size, Darden is able to provide personalized attention to students, enabling them to form bonds that extend through graduation and beyond. While students are on Grounds, they feel part of a close-knit and diverse community. When they graduate, this feeling of connectedness continues and culminates in a vibrant, global network of more than 15,000 alumni in 90 countries.
