Industry Focus Electives

Darden offers courses, resources and contacts for several areas outside of our core business curriculum. Learn more about opportunities in the following areas.

The Second Year gives students the chance to sharpen their professional interests, personalizing the Darden approach to career paths and in-demand skill sets. This is when students choose their unique path. Through both area and industry focus electives, students shape their academic experience through the wide-range of courses taught by amazing faculty as well as the numerous clubs and organizations and broader University and Charlottesville communities. Academic and co-curricular opportunities continue the focus on experiential learning and practical application — from consulting projects to seminars to live action cases, students continue to immerse themselves in real-world problems and develop skills to tackle these issues.
