Program Description:

The Darden School of Business has long been recognized as a leading MBA program in general management (currently ranked #1 in this area by Financial Times). The case study method and integrated core curriculum provide a thorough understanding of how all areas of a business impact one another. But Darden students are not just strong managers and leaders — they are also expert specialists. To reflect this important point, the Darden faculty added optional concentrations to the curriculum structure in 2010. While students have always tailored the elective curriculum to focus on areas of interest, the concentrations provide additional guidance and structure to this specialization, as well as providing a stronger signal to recruiters of students’ focus. All students still receive the same MBA degree, but now concentrations can be added to résumés as well. The concentrations are divided into career tracks and theme tracks. PhD Program It is important to emphasize that the primary aim of the doctoral program is to train you to become an academic researcher capable of contributing on the cutting edge of research in Management, particularly within your area of expertise. We will provide you with the learning experiences, readings, and methodological training needed to do academic work at the highest level. Our program is distinctive in that it has a cross-disciplinary curriculum and cohort of students who have interests that span multiple areas within Management – Ethics, LO, Entrepreneurship, and Strategy.
