• “I didn't realize how fortunate I am to be a part of the Darden Doctoral Experience until after I finished my Ph.D. The exposure to cutting-edge Business ethics scholarship is unparalleled. The program structure allowed me to rigorously explore my research interests with the help of first-rate professors who treated me like a real colleague. I never had a hard time approaching anyone for help or advice on an idea I wanted to develop, a paper I had a hard time writing, or a dissertation that needed to be done well. But most importantly, the Experience travels with me wherever I go. I cannot imagine my life as a business ethicist without all the people and relationships that Darden provided me. This has truly been one of the best decisions I made.”
    Angelo Carrascoso (Ph.D. '09)

    “The Ph.D. program at Darden literally transformed my life. My advisors cared about me as both student and human being, and left me with a far broader intellectual perspective.” 
    Susan Harmeling (Ph.D. ’06) 

    “Darden's doctoral program is supportive yet challenging. I never stopped working: reading, thinking and writing...and enjoying every minute. But, it's the people in the program — the faculty and your fellow students — that make the difference. Everyone associated with Darden's program is incredibly brilliant and generous in their time and attention. Most importantly, the faculty have high expectations and give you every opportunity to meet those expectations.”
    Kirsten Martin (Ph.D. ’06)

    “My time at Darden was a life-changing experience. The Darden doctoral student benefits from close, collegial interaction with world-class faculty members set in an environment that blends the strong Jeffersonian intellectual tradition with state-of-the-art facilities. I see the world with new eyes thanks to my time here.”
    Troy Harting (Ph.D. ’05)

    “The doctoral program at Darden positioned me to get exactly the job I wanted and the faculty all went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. The close collaboration with faculty and encouragement to pursue your own research agenda was outstanding and I believe it is unique. I could not think any higher of Darden's program and would recommend it to anyone who wants to not only learn to do research, but to expand their way of thinking about the world.”
