School Mission

The Darden School improves the world by inspiring responsible leaders through unparalleled transformational learning experiences.

Values and principles critical to achieving excellence are:

  • Innovative and rigorous education that develops discerning judgment and the ability to act decisively
  • Insightful research that advances knowledge and impacts practice
  • Inclusive community, united by honor, that enables its global and diverse members to collaborate and excel
  • Enduring relationships that support individual and organizational growth

Faculty & Research

Consistently recognized as the best in the world, the Darden faculty teaches to the student’s benefit while advancing the nature of business itself. Scholars, entrepreneurs, innovators, strategists, disruptors, pragmatists, leaders, dissenters, thinkers and, above all, doers converge to create an unparalleled education experience.

A Class of Their Own
Faculty don’t see themselves as researchers for their own benefit, and they don’t see trade-offs between teaching and research. Instead, they look to the critical thinking from their classrooms to inform their fieldwork, and vice versa.
