Darden and the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management

The mission of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is to enhance diversity in business education and leadership by helping to reduce the serious underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in both our member schools’ enrollment and the ranks of management. Darden is proud to be a member school of the Consortium.

In the upcoming months, Darden will be participating in The Consortium’s 2013 MBA Application Preparation Seminars (MAPS) Series. The seminars allow you to learn about the Consortium’s 18 member schools, the application process, the Consortium fellowship opportunity and the benefits of Consortium membership. You will have the opportunity to network with admission representatives from member schools and chat with Consortium alumni and current students about their MBA experiences.

You can expect to walk away from the seminar with a wealth of knowledge about the MBA application process that will help you compile a competitive application. Anyone wishing to earn an MBA can attend these free sessions by registering online:

If you are planning to apply to Darden through the Consortium, we strongly encourage you to attend one of our Open Houses this fall to see the case method in action and meet members of our top-ranked faculty and tight-knit community.

Darden strives to incorporate diversity programming into all of our events, and at each Open House, all prospective students will have the opportunity to dine with members of our student affinity clubs, engage with Darden’s Chief Diversity Officer Peter Rodriguez and participate in an end-of-day gathering hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
