Grow as Leader
At the beginning and the end of the 21-month program, all EMBA and GEMBA students will come together in Charlottesville for an intensive leadership residency. These week-long residencies will provide new perspectives on the management challenges you face every day. You will enhance your leadership skills through workshops, coaching and reflection.
Learning in Charlottesville
During leadership residencies, students learn on the historic grounds of the University of Virginia — the only university in the United States designated a UNESCO World Heritage site — granting them the immersive experience of a college town.
When in Charlottesville, students typically stay at the Inn at Darden, a full-service center located on the Darden Grounds. Meals are served in the Abbott Center Dining Room, an elegant executive dining room offering a wide-ranging menu, including local and organic cuisine.
