MBA Stories: The Business World

  • Communicating Across Cultures in Business

    "I can think of three reasons why someone from Latin America would choose Darden's MBA program. First, because you'll make lifetime friends. Second, because you'll find diversity in terms of backgrounds, life experiences and geography. Darden isn't just about learning concepts and tools; it's also about learning to work with different people and cultures. And third, Darden gets you ready for anything. With the case method and the class discussion, you'll have to present a plan and make decisions with not enough time, with imperfect information and defend that decision against 60 other students that are ready to knock that plan down and present their own plan. I think that perfectly replicates the world of business today."
    — Juan Mones Cazon (MBA '15)
