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!
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.

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.
