With the "Innovation Laboratory," or i.Lab for short, Darden hopes to supplement its standard case study-based classroom curriculum by providing more collaborative and hands-on experiences to its MBA students. The school likens the new approach to methodologies more typical of social science programs like anthropology and sociology.
The new laboratory will also include a design studio, where students can transform their product ideas into concrete prototypes.
