UVA to offer its EMBA and Global MBA in Rosslyn

The University of Virginia Darden Business School announced on Feb. 3 that it will offer its Executive MBA and its Global Executive MBA in the Washington, D.C. area starting in August.

The programs will be delivered at a new facility in Rosslyn, Virginia, which is located across the Potomac from Washington. 

The EMBA program in Rosslyn will follow the same format as Darden's program in Charlottesville. Students will attend classes on campus for approximately three days per month, then complete the rest of the program through distance learning and at least one international residency in Brazil, China, Europe or India. Students in the Global EMBA program follow a similar format, but complete international residencies in all four locations. 

Officials say that Darden decided to implement this program to take advantage of the resources that the nation's capital has to offer, including the myriad of public transportation options. 

"Washington, D.C., is a global gateway, where business and government intersect," says Scott Beardsley, dean of the Darden School, in a press release. "The new location's proximity to Union Station and the D.C.-area airports, and the once-a-month residencies from Friday to Sunday, make the program easily accessible to executives commuting in from most U.S. metropolitan areas or international gateway cities."

By opening a school in the D.C. area, Darden joins a variety of other schools that also offer EMBAs in the region, including Howard University School of Business, George Washington University's School of Business and Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business.
