Marketing and General Management Club

MGM Logo

The Marketing and General Management (MGM) Club at Darden is a career-oriented organization that aims to bridge the gap between classroom learning and the job market. The club is made up of a diverse community of students who work in various industries, countries, and career tracks. The club's goal is to offer support to students in navigating their career searches successfully. Additionally, MGM Club strives to establish a strong reputation for Darden within academic and professional circles by providing a platform for its members. 

The MGM Club assists its members in discovering and exploring employment opportunities in a wide range of industries. It also fosters interaction among students, outside companies, and faculty to enhance community relationships. By joining the club, Darden students can gain valuable career insights and networking opportunities while contributing to the growth and development of the Darden community.

  • Events

    The Marketing and General Management Club hosts a variety of events and activities throughout the year.

    • MGM Summit: The MGM Summit provides a platform for our sponsor companies to interact with students through a daylong event organized by the Club on grounds during September. The event provides first contact points between companies and students through various networking opportunities. Last year the event was headlined by Sarita Finnie (VP, Innovation and Growth Strategy – Consumer Health at Bayer).
    • MGM Social Events: Events ranging from casual happy hours to more formal networking nights are organized by the club throughout the year to break the monotony of coursework and recruiting.
    • Career Events: With a specific focus on career events, the Club organizes workshops around resume, cover letters, and interviews — both behavioral and case/technical — to help our members put their best foot forward.
    • Special Events: Kaizens trips, visits to companies, and apprenticeship challenges in partnership with companies are organized to provide practical exposure to all members of the club.
