MBA Advisory Board

The MBAAB consists of MBA alumni hailing from all three of the Virginia Tech MBA Programs (Evening, Executive, and Professional), as well as the full-time program previously offered on the Blacksburg Campus. These alumni work with the MBA Program Office to host social gatherings throughout the MBA Programs' geographic footprint and provide programming that promotes recruitment and job placement.
