The University of Virginia Darden School’s Executive MBA features a schedule designed specifically for busy working professionals, and involves both in-person and virtual components so you can effectively balance your time between work and class. The Darden Executive MBA utilizes the case method rather than a lecture-based approach to deliver education. The case method enables you to hold open dialogue with the faculty, and learn from classmates, who themselves are experienced managers who bring unique perspectives to the case discussion. Darden’s case method is based on a four-step learning process, which allows for complete understanding, integration and application of the materials. The first step is based on individual work; you’ll read and consider each case on your own. The next step involves team-based collaboration: share your ideas with your learning team, typically a cross-functional team of five to six peer managers, and learn to challenge, persuade and inspire others; to reconcile differing viewpoints; and to make smart decisions. The third step is the classroom, either an online class meeting or on-Grounds class. Action-oriented classes include case discussions, simulations, and individual and group presentations. The final step is Reflection/Application: reflect on what you have learned so far as a result of the input from your learning team, class and professors.

After completing the integrated coursework that forms the core curriculum of the EMBA program, students choose from a range of available electives. At the beginning and the end of the 21-month program, all EMBA students come together in Charlottesville for a week-long intensive leadership residency. The two residencies enable you to develop new perspectives on the management challenges you face every day. They also enhance your leadership skills through workshops, coaching and reflection. Students are allowed to choose the most convenient program format between: Monthly in-person residencies which typically take place on weekends; and global residencies, where students spend the week attending case method classes, participating in Global Leadership Explorations and learning to work across international borders.
