Current Location: Munich, Bavaria, Germany

Current Company and Title: Entrepreneur at GiftsApp and Investor at Tiburon

Why did you choose to earn your MBA at this business school? Darden and Charlottesville offered a great campus environment in a real university town, no lectures (case studies only), and an extremely familiar and supportive atmosphere.

What was your favorite class and what lesson do you use from it in your role? I am able to apply the skills acquired in Critical & Creative Thinking in Business jointly taught by Edward Freeman and Bobby Parmar every day.

Darden alumni Felix Artmann (MBA ’19)

What was your best memory during your MBA program? My first Friendsgiving (and UVA winning the 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship).

What is one thing about the MBA program that you wish you had known when you applied? I already had a business background and was a little afraid that the first year would turn out to be too repetitive. The case study method and opportunities to grow as a person at Darden proved me wrong.

Weighing your options about applying in Round 3 or to the Class of 2024 in the new admissions cycle? Here are additional ways to connect with Admissions in the coming months:
