The club's goal is to offer support to students in navigating their career searches successfully. Additionally, MGM Club strives to establish a strong reputation for Darden within academic and professional circles by providing a platform for its members. 

The MGM Club assists its members in discovering and exploring employment opportunities in a wide range of industries. It also fosters interaction among students, outside companies, and faculty to enhance community relationships. By joining the club, Darden students can gain valuable career insights and networking opportunities while contributing to the growth and development of the Darden community.
