The Career Center is pleased to present its comprehensive Full-Time MBA Employment Report. The publication details post-graduation career outcomes for the Class of 2021 and internship outcomes for the Class of 2022.

Earlier this fall, the center shared notable career highlights and new employment records achieved by the Class of 2021. These accomplishments include record starting salaries and signing bonuses, the highest percent of students employed at graduation, gains for international students, and more students entering roles in private equity, venture capital and health care.



“The record-breaking figures in this report reflect each and every Darden student’s tremendous resilience, compassion and commitment to purpose — even in times of great, historic change,” said Jeff McNish, assistant dean of the Career Center. “The entire Darden community looks forward to watching the School’s newest alumni continue to meet the challenges and embrace the successes to come as they launch their post-MBA career journeys.”

The official Darden employment report delves deeper into employment and internship figures for the School’s most recent graduates and its Class of 2022. Despite ongoing pandemic-induced economic upheaval, every student in the Class of 2022 reported a summer internship experience for the third year in a row. As with their Class of 2021 classmates, students in the Class of 2022 also reported higher average monthly salaries year-over-year.

“Internships provide Darden’s talented First Year students with unique opportunities for personal and professional growth,” said Jeff McNish, assistant dean of the Career Center. “Through these summer experiences, students can explore and test the business knowledge they’ve acquired through the School’s award-winning curriculum and experience.”
