Continue Your Lifelong Learning Journey With Darden


With over 16,000 graduates across 90 countries, Darden alumni are a vital part of our global community. Whether you are a recent graduate or completed your degree years ago, Darden is committed to your ongoing professional and personal development and growth. Our Executive Education and Lifelong Learning team, in partnership with Darden’s top-ranked faculty, demonstrates this commitment through the immersive educational programs that we develop and deliver to corporate, government, military and individual learners every year. 

As a further demonstration of this commitment, we are inviting Darden alumni to participate in one of Darden’s lifelong learning programs in 2020. Offered as a complimentary* experience, you will have the opportunity to extend your learning, expand your expertise, and enhance your agility and resilience — to continue to learn and live with purpose. 

To meet the unique needs for lifelong learning and continuous professional development amid the coronavirus pandemic and position you and your organization for the future of work, we have redesigned nine of our top programs and reimagined them for the virtual world. We also have 10 additional online and in-person programs running this fall.

This opportunity was made possible through the generous support of Frank M. Sands Sr. (MBA ’63), whose 2019 gift will fund creation of the Sands Institute for Lifelong Learning. The new institute, which will advance best practices for teaching lifelong learners and working executives, is empowering Darden’s faculty to redesign and innovate learning courses, curricula and programs, and to extend the School’s reach globally.

*A reservation fee will be included to ensure your seat remains available and to help defray the administrative costs of this program.



All current Darden Executive Education open programs are available to select for participation, provided they are delivered in-person within the U.S. or online, with the exception of The Executive Program (TEP) and the Management Development Program**. You are invited to sign-up for and attend one program that runs during the 2020 calendar year. As there is limited availability in each program, enrollment will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

**As a Darden alumnus, you and your colleagues are eligible for a 25% discount on The Executive Program or Management Development Program.
