The Darden Graduate School of Business Administration owes its existence to the energy and interest of a group of bankers and business people from Virginia and neighboring states, who formed a Sponsoring Committee to assist in the organization of a graduate school of business administration.

By 1954, the Sponsoring Committee had established an endowment, and the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia appropriated additional funds. Meanwhile, a faculty committee of the University recommended that the school be established, and on March 19, 1954, the University Senate voted a like recommendation. On April 9, the Board of Visitors adopted the following resolution:

“Resolved by the Board of Visitors of the Rector and Visitors of the University of Virginia that a graduate School of Business Administration be and it is hereby created as a separate School of the University.”

Since 1955, the school has grown in size, in the scope of its curriculum, and in the geographical diversity of its influence. As the reputation of the school continues to broaden, it maintains a balance in its commitment to Virginia and the South, as well as to the national and international business communities.

On July 1, 1974, it became The Colgate Darden Graduate School of Business Administration of the University of Virginia. Colgate Whitehead Darden, Jr., preeminent statesperson and educator from the State of Virginia, was Governor of Virginia from 1942 through 1946 and served as President of the University of Virginia from 1947 until 1959.

Mr. Darden was one of the prime forces in the creation of a graduate business school at the University of Virginia and remained an active supporter of the school through its development.

The school is proud to bear the name of this remarkable man.

Facilities

The Darden School The Darden Graduate School of Business Administration is located on the North Grounds, about a mile from the central University Grounds, as part of a graduate-professional complex that also includes the Law School and the Judge Advocate General’s School. Darden’s Goodwin Grounds include the Abbott Center, Saunders Hall, the Camp Library and student services building, twin office and classroom buildings, a parking garage, and the Sponsors Executive Residence Center and gatehouse, used extensively for executive education. The Sponsors Executive Residence Center offers 180 private bedrooms, as well as additional classrooms, meeting rooms, a fitness center and recreation rooms.

Computer Facilities The Darden School has a state-of-the-art technology infrastructure. All classrooms have power and network access for each student seat and are equipped with large screen projection systems. Students are required to purchase a laptop computer when they enter Darden. A walk-up service desk is located next to the classrooms for students to work directly with technicians.

Access to the network is accomplished through both traditional wired connections and wireless access points. Students have the capability to connect from virtually anywhere on Darden Grounds including the classrooms, computing labs, library, and café. Free VPN capability is also available for remote users.

The school provides interactive access to many databases and information services, such as Dow Jones News Retrieval, Bloomberg, DRI, and Compustat. Students can access the school’s e-mail system remotely for electronic mail and course related materials. The school’s portal, myDarden, provides easy access to information systems that support all aspects of student life, including course pre-registration and add-drop, career services, announcements, curriculum resources and a community calendar.

Darden is host to a full-sized, professionally equipped video production studio designed to facilitate faculty pedagogical aims through digital video and audio, both internally for classroom instruction and externally as marketed case-study video and multimedia products. Video content is produced and acquired at Darden or “in-the-field” as the project dictates. Material gathered can then be assigned to Darden’s in-house digital editing facility to be professionally edited and encoded to one of many digital formats, including Web-accessible streaming and audio/video podcasting, for further processing and distribution as necessary. The Abbott Center Auditorium can also serve as a video production facility with multiple broadcast-grade video cameras and audio systems designed to capture large-scale student, faculty, or UVa community educational and social presentations. Professional-quality, high-bandwidth video and audio conferencing can be facilitated to and from the studio, Abbott Center Auditorium, or any of 18 electronically connected classrooms. Supported student services include video conferencing, available throughout the Darden academic building and in the Career Services area to support student projects and interviews,  digital video editing, with equipment available to Darden students in the Library, and video acquisition/still camera equipment available for checkout in the Classroom Support area. A host of support staff is on hand to help with any classroom or video related project or question.

Darden’s Student Information Systems is comprised of Admissions, Career Services, Class Registration, and Alumni Services. These four software modules were developed and written in-house by the administrative staff and the Darden Solutions technology department. These systems have proven so successful that seventeen top-tier business and professional schools have licensed one or more of these systems for their own use.

Information technology is highly integrated into the Darden curriculum. First year students make heavy use of the spreadsheet, word processing, data analysis, and presentation graphics software installed on their notebook computers. Use of computers in both the first and second years is designed to provide an understanding of the role of information technology in information-gathering and decision-making contexts.

Library The Camp Business Library of the Darden School is a research library that provides vital support to students in their course work, classroom preparation, research projects, and career search. The library has a current collection of materials that are focused on business and the social sciences. It contains basic reference works, a broad selection of business and public affairs periodicals, selected government documents, and statistical resources, as well as access to over 150 electronic databases. The collection includes unique subscriptions to 600 business journals and electronic access to thousands of journals through library databases. The collection includes 125,000 volumes and 300,000 items in microform collection. The library staff is headed by a professional librarian and a reference librarian who are both members of the Darden faculty. The librarians and library staff are available to assist students with the development of research strategies and the use of information services that are available at the Darden library and other UVa libraries.

The Darden School Foundation

The supportive relationship between the school and the Darden School Foundation began with the initiative of those southern business leaders who, under the guidance of former University President Colgate W. Darden, Jr., secured the initial endowment funds necessary to found the school in the early 1950s.

Today, the role of the foundation continues as a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation that manages current endowment funds for the exclusive benefit of the Darden School, operates the school’s prominent executive education programs, and promotes the support of the school by alumni, friends, and corporations. An elected Board of Trustees, all of them Darden alumni, manage the Foundation’s affairs and give freely of their time and advice, providing an important link between the academic and business communities.

Funds provided annually to the school contribute to all phases of life at Darden. The Darden School’s rapid rise to prominence on the strength of both its MBA and Executive Education programs is, in large part, due to the initial and continuing generosity of the many alumni, friends, and corporations who comprise the Darden School Foundation membership.

Dual Degree Programs

Objective  Dual degree programs are offered by the Darden School in connection with other schools and departments at the University of Virginia. For women and men who show high promise to act with determination, judgment, and integrity in increasingly responsible positions of leadership in the world of practical affairs, these programs are designed to enhance the educational experience beyond that which could be achieved if the two degrees were taken independently. Each joint-degree program is a unique program with significant and identifiable synergies that the two degrees taken independently would not offer. The Joint-Degree Programs are only available in combination with the Full-Time Program.

Admissions For all dual degree programs, except M.B.A./Ph.D., students first must be admitted to the Darden School and the appropriate University graduate school or department through the normal admission processes. Admission to both programs should be simultaneous or occur during the student’s first year at Darden. (See Section III for admission requirements for the M.B.A./Ph.D. program). Once the student is admitted to both programs, the student must be accepted for the dual degree program by the dual degree program’s program committee. Admission to a dual degree program should be prior to matriculation or no later than during the student’s first year at Darden.

Curriculum Requirements Students in dual degree  programs must complete the Darden first year program and 22.5 credits of electives (instead of the normal 30 credits). Other curriculum requirements are noted in the individual dual degree program descriptions.

Receipt of the M.B.A. degree is contingent upon receipt of the respective non-M.B.A. degree. In the dual M.B.A./Ph.D. program, however, the faculty will award the M.B.A. degree to a student who has completed all requirements for the regular M.B.A. program.

Grading Standards Candidates for dual degrees must satisfy the grading standards of the appropriate school or department granting the non-M.B.A. In Darden courses, a student who has received a grade of F in two or more courses or has accumulated 6.5 or more B- course equivalent units or received a single grade of F and has accumulated 4.5 or more B- course equivalent units shall be notified by the Academic Standards Committee, acting on behalf of the faculty, that h/she is dismissed from the MBA Program and will not be recommended for the MBA degree.

Transfer to a Single-Degree Program At any point in the program, the student will be allowed to terminate plans for a dual degree and to continue toward a single degree at either school or department. The student will then be obligated to satisfy the normal requirements of the appropriate program, which may include credit for some of the work done in the other program, as determined by the appropriate officials of the school or department in question.

For More Information about dual degree programs at Darden, contact the Director of Admissions, The Darden School, University of Virginia, P.O. Box 6550, Charlottesville, VA 22906-6550; (434) 924-7281.

Academic Regulations

Students of the University are subject to two sets of regulations, those of the University as a whole and those of the respective schools. Listed below are rules that apply within the Darden School. Appropriate excerpts from the University regulations are set forth in the next section.

Performance in the School

In addition to (1) following the University standards of conduct, (2) abiding by the obligations of the Honor System, and (3) meeting the standards of the Darden School for scholastic achievement, a Darden School student is expected to (4) perform in a manner that is consistent with the academic good order and educational processes of both the individual courses and the Darden School in general. This latter requirement is important in a learning experience that encourages responsible competition and cooperation. Disruption of the learning experience can deprive others of the educational benefits for which they came to the Darden School.

The faculty has provided a process for the review of the conduct of a student whose behavior is disruptive of the administrative and academic good order or educational process of other students, of individual courses or the Darden School in general.

Proceedings brought before the Honor Committee or the Judiciary Committee of the University or the Academic Standards Committee of the Darden School and falling solely within their single or collective jurisdiction shall take precedence over action under this review procedure.

The procedure supplements but does not abrogate an instructor’s rights and responsibilities for maintaining an effective and orderly learning atmosphere in class.

The process, in brief, provides for the establishment of an ad hoc committee of inquiry, which may include a student member, to hear the issue and, on behalf of the faculty, impose the penalty, if any, that it considers appropriate, up to and including enforced withdrawal from the Darden School.

The committee’s decision may be appealed to the school’s faculty.

Attendance Policy

Darden students are expected to attend class in order to contribute as well as learn. Each course must have a written attendance policy that describes the consequences of missed classes. The course policy must be distributed to students before the end of the first week of classes. Whenever students miss class, they should, out of courtesy, inform their instructor as to the circumstances, in advance if possible.

Grading System

The school recognized the following grade categories: Distinguished Performance (DP); High Performance (HP); Standard Performance (SP); Low Performance (LP); Unsatisfactory Performance (UP); Fail/No Credit (F); the lowest no-penalty passing grade: LP. 

Credit/No Credit Grades Darden students may not take courses on CR/NC basis.

Auditing Courses M.B.A. students and students enrolled in other schools of the University may audit elective courses with the permission of the instructor.

Withdrawals

The dean’s office may ask a student at any time to withdraw from a particular course or from the school because of unsatisfactory academic work or for other adequate reasons.

Course Descriptions

Note: The most current course descriptions are available online at http://www.darden.virginia.edu/.

900-Level Courses

The Darden School offers, on a selected basis, courses approved by the faculty that are pertinent to the students enrolled in its doctoral program. Courses differ each term, depending on the doctoral students in residence and their fields of concentration. Doctoral students, and other students for whom these offerings might be appropriate, should contact the director of the doctoral program for current course descriptions at (434) 924-7247.
