Beyond the MBA Classroom: Celebrating 100 Cases at Darden

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

The celebration of the first-year class’s completion of its first 100 cases at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business Administration, appropriately called the 100-Case Party, typically takes place in mid-October. Over the two years they spend at Darden, students will study approximately 600 cases, so this party recognizes the first sixth of that. The 100-Case Party is held off campus at a Charlottesville club. Said one alumnus we interviewed, it is “a huge party; people go wild.” Another told mbaMission that the party is significant because “it celebrates a huge milestone.”
