Executive MBA Admissions 1:1 Conversations and Chats

The decision to pursue your MBA is an important one, and our Admissions Committee wants to help you make an informed decision. After learning about Darden’s Executive MBA program on our website, we invite you to attend a coffee chat with fellow prospective students, or schedule a one-on-one phone conversation to discuss your individual circumstances. During this conversation, we can discuss:

  • The potential fit between your professional background, your goals and our program
  • What differentiates Darden from other executive MBA programs
  • The Global Executive MBA option (GEMBA) 


Who are these chats/conversations for?

These sessions are for candidates who have already done some basic research about Darden’s Executive MBA program and are interested in making a personal connection as they continue to explore our MBA formats for working professionals.

How should I prepare?

You should be prepared to share a high-level overview of your story, why you are considering an MBA and how you became interested in UVA Darden. You will also have a chance to ask questions about our program and application process. Here are a few helpful resources:

Are these calls evaluative?

No. They are purely informational, and they are an opportunity for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us better.
