Asia Business Club at Darden

Asia Business Club @ Darden Logo

ABCD is one of the largest affinity clubs at Darden. Our purpose is to help ABCD members succeed at Darden by providing support in recruiting, social, and personal development. We are dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion by promoting Asian culture in the Darden community. ABCD also supports admission events in Asia and helps to promote Darden to Asian prospective students.

Members of ABCD recently hosted a webinar where they shared their experiences at Darden and what their club brings to the Darden community.
