This May, Darden ran its Normandy Leadership Ride program for the third, consecutive year. This unique program allows students to apply broad leadership lessons from the Normandy invasion to their own reflections on leading large and complex organizations, collaboration across units within an organization, effective leadership, and cross-cultural leadership. The program is led by Gordon Rudd, Professor of Strategic Studies, U.S. Marine Corps School of Advanced Warfighting, and Bill Utt (Darden MBA ’84), adjunct Darden lecturer.
Poets and Quants and UVA Today recently covered the Darden Normandy program. Read their stories and enjoy the photos below taken by Jocelyn Recht (Darden Class of 2017), who participated in the Leadership Ride.
