​When considering part time MBA programs, Virginia Tech's Evening MBA was always the obvious choice for me. I am excited to connect with and learn from my knowledgeable peers and professors in person this fall in a way that fits into my busy full time work schedule and extracurricular heavy lifestyle. As a financial analyst within the government contracting space, I know that the enhancement of important technical and analytical skills needed to excel in my day-to-day work that this program provides will be complemented by hands-on, actionable guidance in improving interpersonal communication skills and relationship building that directly translate to my personal life and professional goals. I can't wait to see how this adventure helps shape my future interests and abilities - Go Hokies!

B.A. International Affairs, Minor in History | James Madison University
Master of Information Technology | Virginia Tech

As a software engineer in a family-run business, I am complimenting the Master of Information Technology degree I just earned at Virginia Tech with the MBA.  Within the company are a number of technically proficient employees but few who are knowledgeable about business. Professionally, the MBA program will provide the knowledge and skills necessary for handling the administrative/business side of the company and personally, the MBA will help with the inter-personal skills that are so necessary for life.

I look forward to building relationships with other students in the program and learning from our collective experiences.
