Giving Back to the Community: Consulting with Local Entrepre [#permalink] New post 08 May 2014, 09:00
FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Giving Back to the Community: Consulting with Local Entrepreneurs
First and Second Year Darden students have many opportunities to engage with the Charlottesville community: participating in the Building Goodness in April project, collaborating with a local business in the i.Lab Incubator, consulting with area entrepreneurs through student clubs or elective courses, and more.

Shwetha Shyam, a First Year Darden student, reflects on her experience consulting and training local non-traditional entrepreneurs:

“As a First Year student at Darden, I was amazed at the numerous opportunities that existed within Community Consultants of Darden (CCoD) to make a significant impact in the community. CCoD provides marketing, operational, and strategic evaluation and planning services to visionary small businesses and non-profit organizations in the Charlottesville community.

Darden students advising local entrepreneurs at CIC

One such opportunity included helping the Community Investment Collaborative (CIC), a Charlottesville organization which provides entrepreneurial training for local non-traditional entrepreneurs. As a Darden MBA student, I was given the opportunity to interact with these entrepreneurs, draw upon my Darden classroom experiences and give them advice on formulating their own business and marketing plans. It was impressive how a number of them had full-time jobs and were incredibly busy, yet still passionate about starting their own businesses.

Having taken the traditional corporate route myself, it was incredible to see how these entrepreneurs managed their time and worked to bring their ideas to life. They were very flexible, open to our input and willing to do whatever it took to make it. The entrepreneur whom I talked to worked weekends and committed a huge amount of time to the CIC despite the uncertainty around her venture. As a full-time nanny, she wanted to start a nanny business with her well-established network around Charlottesville.

For me, being on the other side of the table, assuming the role of an advisor, brought on a huge rush. I was thrilled that she took my advice and used my insights to inform her business plan. I certainly know my fellow classmates felt the same. A lot of us are still in touch with these entrepreneurs and making sure they are getting all the help that they need! I hope to continue to be part of the CIC initiative during the upcoming months at Darden.”

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: The Darden Experience: A Reflection
Over 300 Darden students walked across the historical University of Virginia Lawn to receive their MBA diploma this past May. Recent graduate and student blogger Jon Meredith (MBA ’14) reflects upon his past two years at Darden in his post, “The Darden Experience.”

“The past two years have been challenging, stressful, exciting, fun, and above all else, truly an experience that will never be forgotten. The decision to attend Darden has been rewarded with an unmatched education and bountiful career opportunities. As I think about my favorite parts of Darden, my experience revolves around an unrivaled classroom environment, meaningful relationships with faculty, and new-found friendships.” more

G.I. Bill Benefits for Military Veterans at Darden [#permalink] New post 10 Jun 2014, 12:36
FROM Darden Admissions Blog: G.I. Bill Benefits for Military Veterans at Darden
Current Virginia state law allows veterans to apply for in-state residency for tuition purposes immediately upon moving to Virginia. Eligibility for the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Depending on veterans’ individual eligibility levels, benefits may include:

  • Payments made directly to the University toward in-state tuition & fees (fees for room and board, transportation, books, laptop and supplies are not covered)
  • A monthly housing allowance (MHA) paid directly to benefits recipients based on the basic allowance for housing for an E-5 with dependents for the Charlottesville zip code
  • An annual books and supplies stipend of up to $1,000 per year paid directly to benefits recipients
The Darden School encourages veterans to contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for further information and for an official determination of eligibility.

The Darden School is one of the few schools at the University of Virginia to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Recipients of veterans benefits who are also qualified by the VA for the Yellow Ribbon Program but are unable to qualify for in-state status for tuition purposes, will receive a $5,000 Yellow Ribbon Scholarship on top of other Post-9/11 educational benefits. This scholarship makes up the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition and fees.

We invite you to learn more about veterans benefits at the Darden School of Business by watching MBA Admissions Dean Sara Neher’s video blog below. You can also visit our website to learn more about the Darden Military Community and Resources.
