Darden was an amazing experience. Exceptional curriculum, professors, facilities, and support. Additionally, they picked a phenomenal cohort/fellow classmates. The two years at Darden will be considered one of the highlights of my life. A fantastic educational experience and I'm now being considered/in competition for the next CEO of our company.
