About Darden - Leadership - Darden School Administrative Leadership

Administrative Leadership

Darden's administrative leadership is comprised of two teams: the Enterprise Team and the Leadership Team. The Enterprise Team includes senior leaders with major cross-Darden responsibilities who meet regularly to set and review the School's strategy. The Leadership Team is a broader group of unit leaders that works together to ensure successful coordination and collaboration in pursuit of the Darden mission.
