As you pause at the start of a new year to consider your goals and resolutions, there’s no better time to consider whether to invest in your future career through an MBA.
Whether you’re looking for fully online delivery or in-person classes, Virginia Tech offers three different part-time MBA formats designed for working professionals in the Washington, D.C. area and beyond.
“Our strategic focus since 2013 has been to provide working professionals with flexible options that fit into their personal and professional lives,” said Dana Hansson, director of MBA programs at Virginia Tech.
That commitment to providing different types of flexibility informed the launch of Virginia Tech’s Online MBA in January 2021, but the program recognizes there is still a significant population of students that prefer the in-person learning environment, particularly after online meetings have become the new normal in other parts of their lives.
Virginia Tech’s portfolio of programs seeks to balance these preferences so everyone can find an MBA that meets their individual needs.
- Evening MBA — Virginia Tech’s Evening MBA program has been consistently ranked the best part-time MBA program in Virginia, and one of the best in the nation, by U.S. News & World Report. The program provides maximum flexibility for those who prefer to learn in-person. Classes are offered on weekday evenings at Virginia Tech’s center in West Falls Church and students choose their own course load each semester, as well as their personal degree timeline. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
- Executive MBA — This 18-month, cohort-based program is based at Virginia Tech’s state-of-the-art facility in Ballston. With easy transport links, an accelerated timeline, and the cost of books, meals, parking and more included in tuition, the Executive MBA provides maximum convenience for experienced professionals. Students meet bi-monthly on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings for intensive class weekends that emphasize strategic leadership and experiential learning. The next application deadline is January 15.
- Online MBA — This 22-month, cohort-based program is 100% online, and includes a mix of synchronous and asynchronous delivery to maximize engagement. The cohort format allows students to build meaningful connections with talented classmates and Virginia Tech’s top-notch faculty. The next application deadline is January 31.
