Darden and the World.
The Darden Center for Global
Initiatives strengthens and expands Darden’s global community, in
Charlottesville and around the world, by providing educational opportunities and
by building partnerships.
What we do:
The Darden Center for
Global Initiatives (DCGI) works to enhance global business education at Darden
and expand the School’s visibility and influence around the world. It helps to
support Darden’s global awareness and activities and enhances the rich global
fabric of Darden’s community. Approximately a third of Darden’s student body is
made up of international students, representing dozens of countries and a
multitude of cultures. These global perspectives add valuable dimension and
depth to class discussions. Our faculty, many of whom are from outside the
United States, teach, consult and do research around the world.
year, DCGI enables more than 200 Darden students to take one- to two-week
courses led by Darden faculty outside the U.S. or engage in consulting with
international clients under faculty guidance. Additionally, almost a quarter of
our electives have global content and our global alumni network spans the world.
This interactive brochure showcases the
impressive global reach of the Darden School of Business.
This global awareness and positioning affords opportunities for
our students to spend time studying in MBA programs overseas. In any given week,
we may have a distinguished global speaker, an international food festival,
faculty doing consulting work abroad or the dean hosting a guest from outside
the United States.
