Webinar with Darden’s European Society [#permalink]

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Webinar with Darden’s European Society
http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/files/2017/09/european-society-snapshot-300x169.png
Four members of Darden’s European Society recently sat down to talk about why they chose Darden, what intrigued them about a global experience, and their experience thus far at Darden and in Charlottesville. You can read Felix, Ilja, Alexis and Josep’s bios below.

Moderator and Admissions Director, Katherine Alford, asked the four what they have enjoyed or found surprising about Charlottesville. They all agreed that even though it’s a small town, there’s tons of culture – arts, music, food, vineyards, sports and more.

When asked about their experience in the classroom and with their classmates, the group discussed how they have learned and grown in every class, even when their expectations were that the class would be covering content they already knew. Felix said he gets three days’ worth out of every day because there is so much to do and so much to learn.

The four discussed the wealth of clubs and extracurricular options that abound at Darden – everything from the student government, to Darden Capital Management, to the outdoor sports club.

Finally, the group suggested some great tips for anyone going through the application process with Darden. Check out the full webinar to hear all of what they say. You can learn more about Darden’s European Society on their website.

Meet the Panel Members:

Ilja Orre:

Ilja was born and raised in Helsinki, Finland. He’s spent the last 10 years in the US, earning his Bachelor’s degree at College of Willam & Mary and working for Ferguson Enterprises, an industrial giant in sales and marketing management roles. Ilja’s next career step will be to join Bain & Co. in the Nordics, where he hopes to build a career in Bain’s Customer Strategy & Marketing group.

Felix Artmann:

Felix, 30, from Munich/Frankfurt Germany. He had undergraduate studies in Business and Mechanical Engineering. He chose to go for the entrepreneurial path after school right away and started as an entrepreneur in residence, became cofounder of Bonaverde and has been working in a seed venture capital company for the last 4 years. Felix wants to do something along the “entrepreneurial” value chain – from founding his own business to VC/PE.

Alexis Moulin:

Alexis from Lyon, France. He studied Business Administration at the University of Lyon and at the University of Marseille. He has a strong experience in analytics and managerial accounting. As a managerial accounting manager, Alexis helped the company he worked for 4 years to recover its profitability after a threatening slowdown and he is now eager to solve new financial challenges as intern for the next summer. After graduation, Alexis wants to work in a corporate finance role in a large corporation.

Josep Martinez:

Josep is from Barcelona. He studied Business Administration, Bachelor and Master, at ESADE Business School. Before Darden, he worked in turnaround consulting for 6 years, focusing in strategy and finance. He worked at a Corporate Development and Strategy department of an industrial company in London. After Darden, Josep wants to work in corporate development or corporate strategy for an industrial company in Europe.

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: New Podcast @ ExecMBA!
http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/files/2017/10/Hanna-D1-300x300.jpg
We’ve got podcast episodes! They’re multiplyin’! Our third installment of the ExecMBA podcast is now available. Check. It. Out.

In this episode we profile our various conversation opportunities – both phone and in-person – and interview Hanna Dobbels, a member of our Class of 2019, about her experience in the Program so far and what drew her, as an entrepreneur, to Darden.

This is the first in an ongoing series exploring entrepreneurship in the executive formats of the Darden MBA. We think Darden’s case method and enterprise orientation is pretty great at preparing students to launch and lead their own business, but don’t take our word for it!

Have an idea for a podcast episode? Email us at ExecMBA@darden.virginia.edu.

Concert for Charlottesville (Photos by Dan Addison, University Communications)

On the last Sunday in September, an impressive slate of artists assembled by Dave Matthews donated their time and traveled from across the country and the world to support the Charlottesville and University communities in the wake of violent white supremacist demonstrations on Aug. 11 and 12. Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Chris Stapleton, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, The Roots and Cage the Elephant, Coldplay and…Stevie Wonder played before thousands of community members in Scott Stadium, and many more watched the live stream online.

Though tickets were free, attendees were encouraged to make a donation to the “Concert for Charlottesville Fund” at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. That fund will benefit victims of the violence and their families, first responders and organizations dedicated to promoting equality and tolerance.

Concert attendees said that the event provided a great way for the community to come together after the violence of that the recent August weekend. Stevie Wonder added that the concert “is truly the example that love can win,” and urged the crowd, “Use your gift, your song, your musicianship, your voice to spread the never-ending cry for love.”

To read a complete recount of the Concert for Charlottesville, check out this UVA Today report by Caroline Newman. (Content: Caroline Newman)

Martin Davidson on Diversity at Darden Webinar [#permalink]

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Martin Davidson on Diversity at Darden Webinar
http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/files/2017/10/MartinDavidsonLowRes600x800-225x300.jpg
Earlier this week, Darden’s Senior Associate Dean and Global Chief Diversity Officer Martin Davidson hosted a webinar on diversity and inclusion throughout the community of Darden and the broader community of Charlottesville, VA.

Martin began by explaining the program’s mission to make diversity and inclusion a part of Darden’s DNA, and to empower everyone – students, faculty and staff – to hold each other accountable in attaining this goal. Then, he addressed the school and the community’s reaction to the white supremacy events in August.

The “variety of incredible outcomes” from the August events Martin enumerated include:

  • Scrutinizing what we could have done better before and during the events, and how we can make changes in security to make the University an even safer place.
  • A heightened focus and energy in making this a more inclusive community, not only at Darden, but at the University and in the community of Charlottesville.
  • A surge of brainstorming sessions and discussions on diversity and inclusion in general; recently Darden held “One Darden Week” celebrating our diverse global community through various events, workshops and discussions.
  • Providing diversity training for faculty and staff teaching them how to lead more inclusively.
When asked how we may have fallen short in our attempts to be an inclusive community, Martin explained that this happens when we don’t encourage people to stand up and say or do what may be unpopular, in an attempt to keep the community a pleasant and collegial place.

Reflecting on UVA’s history with Thomas Jefferson and its location south of the Mason-Dixon line, Martin proposed that these factors make our engagement in the racial dialogue even stronger and more active. While we might not always get everything right, we are talking and thinking, and this makes our community healthier.

Martin Davidson has been with Darden for over 19 years, and is the first tenured African American professor. Watch the full webinar to hear his powerful message. And read more about diversity and inclusion at Darden.

Darden Admissions Wants to Talk! [#permalink]

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Darden Admissions Wants to Talk!
http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/files/2017/10/Conversation-snapshot-300x169.png

Watch: Phone Conversation Tips

One of the best things about executive format recruitment is all the interaction we get to have with our prospective students.

As you may know, we offer a number of different ways for prospective students to connect with us – from events to one-on-one meetings – and it can sometimes be a little hard to know where to begin. Well, we are here to help!

Darden admissions offers tons of events, and each will provide you different insights into our Executive MBA Program. In other words, you can’t go wrong! But as a first step, you may want to consider scheduling a phone conversation.

These 30-minute conversations with a member of our Admissions Committee are an easy and convenient way for you to learn more about our executive formats – Executive MBA (EMBA) and Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) – and locations – Charlottesville and the Washington, DC area – and to ask any initial questions about Darden and/or your potential fit.

While there are a number of different questions that come up during these calls, here are a few of the most frequent ones:

  • How are your EMBA format and GEMBA format similar? How are they different?
  • You have locations in Charlottesville and the Washington, DC area – how do the locations compare?
  • What is the case method?
  • What career support do you provide your executive format students?
  • Is a standardized test required as part of your admissions process? If so, is there a waiver process?
  • What is the Executive Assessment?
  • Do you offer merit scholarships?
If you schedule a conversation, we encourage you to spend some time reviewing the basic structure and design of our program before your call. This preliminary review will allow you to have a more productive and meaningful conversation, and ensure that the Admissions Committee member has more time to understand your interests, your goals and your reasons for pursuing your MBA.

For a few more tips on maximizing your call, be sure to check out this video.

http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/files/2017/10/MSDS-MBA-300x200.jpg
The UVA Data Science Institute (DSI) and the Darden School of Business have partnered to provide an opportunity for students to earn a Master of Science in Data Science and a Master of Business Administration in 24 months. Partnering these two schools brings the best of both: Darden’s No. 1 best education experience in the world (The Economist, 2011-2016) and DSI’s action-oriented 11-month curriculum.

What does the program promise? Developing coveted hires and indispensable leaders in a variety of fields, including consulting, finance and technology. Interested? Learn more about the program. When asked about the program, current MSDS+MBA student, Ab Boxley answered,

“The Darden degree gives the MSDS the manager’s context, the MSDS gives Darden inspiration. It’s a very nice combination of technical skills and recognizing where those skills might be applicable.”

If you’d like to hear more from current students and the program’s faculty advisor, Raj Venkatesan, register for our MSDS+MBA webinar this Thursday, 12 October. Audience members will be able to ask questions about the program, application process, and more.

New “Dynamic Space” for Darden in DC [#permalink]

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: New “Dynamic Space” for Darden in DC
http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/files/2017/10/Rosslyn-proposed-interior-300x103.jpg
Conceptual drawings of Darden’s new Rosslyn facility.

Darden recently announced that it will open new facilities in the Washington, D.C., area. The dynamic space, housed on the top two floors of a modern high-rise in the Rosslyn district of Arlington, Virginia, boasts expansive views of the capital region and includes classrooms, offices and event space, opening up a world of new opportunities for the University of Virginia and for the Darden School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) and Executive Education programs in the D.C. area.

This new space is representative of the growth of the EMBA and Executive Education programs. In 2016, Darden dramatically expanded the reach of its EMBA program, which includes an intensive Global Executive MBA format, when it welcomed the first cohort of the new Rosslyn section. This past August, nearly 70 new students joined the Rosslyn EMBA section for the 2017–18 academic year. When asked, Brett Twitty, Director of Admissions for Executive Formats, responded:

Having a world-class facility in the DC area is an incredibly exciting development for our executive format students, but also for Darden generally. The past two years for our Executive MBA Program have been filled with highlights, and the executive formats of the Darden MBA have never been more popular. As a program, we have a tremendous amount of momentum, and the launch of this new space is the latest reflection of this trajectory.
