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.
