The mission of the Retail and Luxury Goods Club is to increase awareness and interest in the retail, consumer products and luxury goods industries among Darden students, and to increase Darden’s presence in these industries. The R&LG Club is the hub for retail alumni networking and strives to connect Darden students with their desired companies for summer and full-time positions. Students in the R&LG club will attend a career trek to New York City, join the first year/second year career mentor program (RLG specific), attend educational workshops on retail and the non-traditional recruiting process and receive up-to-date information on industry news, industry conferences and industry specific job opportunities.
Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
We welcome prospective students to reach out to members of our leadership team to learn more about the Retail and Luxury Goods Club.
