“Washington, D.C. is a global gateway, where business and government intersect,” said Darden dean, Scott Beardsley. “For 60 years, the Darden School has developed business, government and military leaders through its MBA and executive education programs. The capital region was an obvious choice for our new location, since Virginia has always had close ties to the nation’s capital.”
According to the UVA Darden press release, the Washington, D.C. Executive MBA experience will mirror the experience delivered at the Darden campus in Charlottesville, VA. Students will be given the choice of studying primarily at the new D.C. location or at UVA (though all students will spend some time at both campuses), as well as the choice of pursuing the regular EMBA (with a global residency in Europe, India, China, or Brazil) or the global EMBA (with global residences in all four locations).
“The School’s mission is to improve the world by developing responsible leaders, who are also global and entrepreneurial. The District’s concentrations in entrepreneurship and innovation, its international influence and its tradition of leadership naturally align with the Darden School’s strengths,” said Beardsley. “The program prepares leaders for high performance through weekend residencies, global residencies and distance learning, of which Darden is a pioneer.”
