Last week, The University of Virginia decided to move all classes online and limit events due to the evolving global spread of the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19. 

We have also postponed all in-person Admissions events (including class visits) until further notice. However, all upcoming webinars will proceed as planned (unless otherwise notified) and we look forward to seeing you online! We will be adding more virtual events in the coming weeks, so be sure to keep an eye on our online event listings for updates (MBA | Executive MBA).

We are here to help in any way we can as we collectively navigate this extraordinary time. Please be safe and stay healthy. In the meantime, here are a few websites to help you stay informed about UVA’s response to COVID-19:

We invite you to continue virtually learning about Darden by using the resources listed below. If you have any questions, we can always be reached via email:

Full-Time MBA: darden@virginia.edu
Executive MBA: execmba@darden.virginia.edu
Future Year Scholars: futureyear@darden.virginia.edu

1.  Schedule a conversation.

Connect one-on-one with a member of our Admissions Committee. Of course, we wish you could meet you in person, but until that time, we hope you will consider scheduling a conversation (MBA | Executive MBA).

We offer phone and Skype options, and these brief, introductory calls are a great way to get the information you need as you consider Darden. We look forward to connecting.

Darden’s website also makes it easy to connect with current students. Check out our Student Ambassadors listing to find a student who shares your background and interests. We also encourage you to reach out to the leaders of Darden’s more than fifty student clubs.

2. Webinars.

We have a number of upcoming webinars and each is a great way to learn about the Darden experience. As always, even if you are unable to attend the live session, we encourage you to register. All registrants will be emailed a link to a recording of the webinar. 

As noted above, we’ll be adding additional sessions to our online event listings (MBA | Executive MBA) in the coming weeks so check back often!

3. Podcasts.

Darden Admissions has two podcasts — our full-time MBA podcast, Experience Darden, and our Executive MBA focused podcast, The ExecMBA Podcast

Both podcasts publish weekly and feature regular conversations with students, faculty and staff. You can now find our podcasts across a host of platforms — Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Podbean and more. 

Additional Listening: Start with our Admissions podcasts, but be sure to also check out some of Darden’s other podcasts including Ideas to Action and Darden Speaker Series.
