Tayo Jackson, MBA Student and Entrepreneur

"I wanted to focus on becoming an entrepreneur."

I am a Consortium Fellow at the Darden School of Business, University of Virginia. I was born and raised in the Washington, DC area and I graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 2006 with a BS in Biomedical Engineering. Prior to business school, I spent six years in medical device sales in Washington, DC selling and programming pacemakers and defibrillators.

I returned to school to pursue my MBA at Darden for the opportunity to learn through the case method and to attend a top-ranked school in general management and entrepreneurship. At Darden, I was elected the Vice President of Careers in the Darden Student Association Student Government and was a finalist in a social media business plan competition. Outside of the classroom, I love to travel and enjoy visiting new places and meeting new people.
