Virginia Tech’s Evening MBA announced that students will return to its Falls Church center for classes this August. The Evening MBA program is among the best in the country and the top part-time MBA program in Virginia, according to a 2022 survey of the nation’s top graduate schools by U.S. News & World Report.

“We know many students choose the Evening MBA because they value the in-person interactions they have with classmates and faculty members,” said Rebecca McGill, associate director of MBA recruiting at Virginia Tech. “We’re excited to return to in-person classes and provide those rich learning and networking opportunities that some find they’ve missed in the online environment.”

At the same time, McGill says there has been a high level of interest in Virginia Tech’s recently launched Online MBA.

“We were pleased with the level of interest for our first Online MBA cohort, and I think that reflects the changing needs and preferences of today’s professionals after a year of adapting to remote work,” said McGill.

Dana Hansson, director of MBA programs at Virginia Tech, says it’s important to adapt to meet students wherever their needs are. “Our strategic focus since 2013 has been to provide working professionals with flexible options that fit into their personal and professional lives,” she said.

Virginia Tech’s current suite of programs includes the Evening MBA, Online MBA and the Ballston-based Executive MBA. All are part-time formats designed with working professionals in mind.

Applications for the Evening MBA program are due July 1. Learn more about Virginia Tech’s MBA programs at mba.vt.edu.
