The University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business announced its MBA essay for 2014-15 i.e. for the Class of 2017.
Darden tweaked its essay question from last year with the essence remaining similar. While that is the only essay question listed on Darden’s website, historically Darden’s application has included two other questions, which are provided below.
In the past, Darden has included additional essays as part of its online application form. Darden’s application is not live as of this writing. At that point, one would be able to confirm the additional essays for 2014-15. If these essays are the same as previous years, the total word count for Darden’s MBA Essays would be 1,000 words.
