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.
