One Student's View
"I think that Darden offers unique attributes that were key to my success and which I could not have gotten at other schools. Specifically, the interaction with professors was critical in helping me learn the concepts and feel more confident in my abilities. [Professors] were always available thanks to the open-door policy, and they were exceptionally willing to help and mentor on both academic- and job-related issues. Second, the case method is the only way I could have been engaged in my studies, since I was used to being in the working world and having my opinions heard. I also liked that it afforded me the chance to learn about a breadth of industries and business issues, and forced me to become articulate, persuasive, and think critically and quickly. I also learned to handle ambiguity of information and make decisions by asking key questions. Lastly, the alumni network at Darden has been amazing in both my B-school and career searches. Alums always responded quickly and with enthusiasm."
