Alumni Showcase

The Darden Alumni Showcase is a student-led initiative that annually highlights Darden graduates whose careers reflect the diversity and full potential of the Darden MBA. Students ask the Darden community to nominate candidates for the showcase and to consider the industry from which they come, their achievements, their geographical location, their professional background prior to Darden and their cultural background. Selected alumni have achieved success in their industries and communities through leadership, vision and determination.
