MBA for Executives

EMBA Calendar

To provide you a sense of the timing for your on-Grounds residencies (leadership residencies as well as term meetings), view the proposed Darden MBA for Executives Class of 2016 calendar below:

The calendar notes when residencies are held and when final projects and exams are due. An important element of the program is the opportunity to interact in the evenings when you are at Darden; all students are expected to be in residence when on-Grounds classes are in session.

Classes meet about once per month in Charlottesville, Virginia for three days (Thursday, Friday and Saturday). Spread throughout the 21-month program, there are also four one-week Leadership Residencies, one of which is international. In between residencies, approximately one-third of the program is delivered via distance learning

  • An MBA With a Convenient Schedule

    Asilia Dinkins

    "I chose Darden not only for its academics but also for its convenient schedule. Typically we come down for a residency on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. What I love about this is that it’s only one Saturday away from my family so it affords me the opportunity to go to my children’s sports or school events, while still being able to fulfill my dream of achieving an MBA." - Asilia Dinkins, EMBA Class of 2014
