Deposit Deadlines

Admitted applicants will be asked to pay a $4,000 deposit in order to reserve their place in the class.

Deposits are non-refundable, but will be applied to your tuition account as credit when you enroll.

Class Visits and Interviews

We encourage all applicants to join us for an executive MBA 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.

Executive MBA class visitors will receive an Executive MBA application fee waiver. If you’ve started an application, once you participate in your visit, a fee waiver code will be added to your application.

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 email us at [email protected], and we'll be glad to schedule a conversation.
