When making the decision to pursue my MBA part-time, Virginia Tech's Evening MBA program was the only program that I had in my sights. The program offered an exciting array of courses to enhance my business acumen while simultaneously engaging my love for technology by giving me the opportunity to earn another degree in IT while at it. Seeing this combination and having gone through the program for almost two years now, I know that the knowledge I have gained and skills I have learned from my time thus far have already made me grow in ways that I did not even foresee for myself. Classes such as Web Applications and E-Commerce, Crime & Conflict in Cyberspace, Accounting I & II and Organizational Behavior have served me especially well in my pursuit to becoming an entrepreneur and starting my own business in the near future. Hands down the best decision I have ever made in my career. Go Hokies!

Before I applied to the Virginia Tech MBA program, I called the MBA Program Director, Dana, to have a conversation about if the MBA program would be a worthwhile investment, given that my undergraduate degree was in business management from Virginia Tech. I was concerned that there would be too much overlap between the two degrees. Dana shared with me about how the MBA program has classes in some of the same topic areas, but that the graduate classes would teach from a completely different vantage point and I would learn from a new angle. I am happy to say that she was completely right and I am very glad that I decided to go forward and apply to the MBA program at Virginia Tech. The classes built upon the foundation of my undergraduate and took my understanding of the topics to a much higher level that is more applicable to my job and future roles that I want to grow into. I have taken classes while working full time and I have been very grateful for the flexibility of the Evening MBA program. I have been able to set my own pace and adjust my course load depending on how busy I am with my other commitments. The class sizes are small enough that I have been able to still make some great connections with classmates and the faculty is always very approachable and helpful! I have enjoyed the autonomy to be able to pick and choose across the different elective areas to create a course of study that is completely tailored to my interests and future pursuits. Go Hokies!
