The Darden Admissions Committee is hitting the road with a variety of events and ways to connect. Check out the schedule below to see if we are coming to a city near you — we hope to see you soon! Interested in events focused primarily on our Executive MBA format? Visit our Exec MBA events page for list of ways to connect. 

Event definitions:

  • Networking Dinners: Join the Admissions Committee, an alumnus or two, and other prospective students for a complimentary dinner. Learn more about Darden over drinks and dinner. 
  • Coffee Chats: Meet an Admissions Committee member during an informal coffee chat. These are typically small group conversations, with no more than five other prospective students in attendance. It’s a great chance to ask the in-depth questions that you really want to know about Darden and the admissions process!
  • Case Discussion and Networking Events: Enjoy complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres while networking with the admissions team, faculty, alumni and other prospective students. Bring a guest if you’d like! Take part in an interactive case discussion led by a Darden faculty member — no preparation needed — and hear from Darden leadership. 
  • Admissions and Alumni Networking Event: Another great chance connect with Darden’s community, including alumni, admissions, and other prospective students. These information sessions give you the unique opportunity to learn about the two formats of Darden’s MBA degree by speaking directly with members of our community.
