Darden African Business Organization (DABO)


 President's Welcome Message  

 Welcome to the Darden African Business Organization! As Africa’s sole representative at Darden we hope that through us you will gain first-rate insights into African culture, as well learn about the opportunities that abound on the continent. We also aspire to promote and build the Darden brand within Africa and encourage business development in Africa from natives and non-natives alike.  Our club welcomes anyone interested in learning more about the African continent. We look forward to building a progressive and culturally stimulating community with you!




About Us

The mission of DABO is to contribute to the learning environment and diversity at Darden by serving as a medium for students and faculty to learn more about African business, economies, politics and culture.  


 In addition, we aim to build a robust community of people interested in Africa (within UVA and the Charlottesville/D.C. region) as a rich resource for current Darden students, alumni, prospective students and the community.  

DABO members are from all over the world: Africa, the United States, South America, Asia etc. All are welcome to join! 


 What We Do 

DABO holds events that address the African business climate, food, fashion and films. 

Specifically, we:

  • Organize conferences, speaker series and other events
  • Help prospective students learn about and apply to Darden
  • Provide an avenue for alumni to contribute to Darden and the continent in general

 Have fun!
