Black Business Student Association

  • BBSA Board 2017 New BBSA Logo

    The Black Business Student Association (BBSA) brings together past, present, and prospective African-American Darden MBAs and enriches the experience of the broader Darden community by increasing African-American cultural awareness. Our programming focuses on professional development, academic excellence, social activities, community service, and safe spaces for the Darden community to discuss race related topics. Membership is open to all.

    Members of BBSA recently hosted a webinar where they shared their experiences at Darden and what their club brings to the Darden community.


    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
