Admitted Student Event

If you apply on or before the April deadline and are offered admission, there will be a special admitted student event in Washington, D.C. that you can attend on Wednesday, 21 May 2014.

Class Visits and Interviews

We encourage all applicants to join us for a EMBA class visit. Class visits provide a great opportunity to experience Darden’s case method and top-ranked faculty, and to speak with our current students.

Qualified applicants will be invited to interview after their application has been reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Interviews play a critical role in our assessment of candidates and are required prior to admittance into the program. If you are invited for an interview, we will try to schedule it on a day when a class visit is available.

Contact our Admissions Office

We encourage you to contact us if you need to discuss the content or timing of your application. Please e-mail us at, and we'll be glad to schedule a conversation.
