Meet the Executive MBA Faculty

The Executive MBA core curriculum is taught by Darden faculty – the same faculty who teach our full-time MBA students. Elective courses are taught by a broader set of instructors including experienced practitioners.

The program is led by Senior Associate Dean for Professional Degree Programs Yael Grushka Cockayne. Professor Yael Grushka-Cockayne's research and teaching activities focus on data science, forecasting, project management and behavioral decision-making.
