BS Business Information Technology | Virginia Tech
"Through the juxtaposition of technical development and strategy management projects as a Cloud Infrastructure Consultant, I believe the Evening MBA Program will sharpen my skills and provide the tools for me to reach my goals in both realms. The flexibility of the program has allowed me to continue working full-time and the material learned in class can be directly applied to my work. Furthermore, the analytical nature of the classes has helped me comprehend how different industries operate and network with individuals in those respective industries. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this excellent program, Go Hokies!"
BS Nursing | Bellarmine University
BS Health Science | James Madison University
“As a student in the Evening MBA program, I’m excited for the chance to expand my knowledge from nursing and the sciences to better understand how the business of healthcare works. I want to be a versatile leader that understands the many aspects of healthcare from operations to management and leadership to financial decisions and what impact they have on our organization. Personally, I am looking forward to the challenge of diving into the world of business and becoming a new member of the Hokie family!”
BSBUS Management | Wayland Baptist University
“As a former United States Air Force supervisor, leader, and manager, I love the opportunity to mentor and foster teamwork, to form a cohesive, hostile free work environment for everyone that I supervised and managed on a daily basis. I feel that these skills would be a very valuable contribution to Virginia Tech’s MBA program because of my professional business experience, project management, and analytical skills. I plan on using my business management, military leadership, and experiential skills to further my knowledge as a true subject matter expert in the business and financial arena as a public servant in the United States Government. I feel that although my undergraduate degree is in Business Management, I need to take it further by attaining my MBA in a reputable program such as Virginia Tech, in order to sharpen my skills as a successful business leader."
MS Environmental Policy | New Jersey Institute of Technology
BS Natural Resources Management | Rutgers University
“I spent much of my career as an environmental regulator, and in that capacity my technical degrees served me well. However, I have recently transitioned into program development and have been finding that my technical degrees were no longer sufficient for this new phase of my career. After considering a number of programs, I chose the Virginia Tech part-time Evening MBA program because it allows me to learn the business skills I need while still being able to meet my professional and personal obligations. The program is conveniently located, and, unlike many similar programs, it is not an online program. The classroom time allows for better interaction with the professors and my classmates and allows me to further build my professional network.”
BA Government & International Relations | George Mason University
“I am an Army veteran and currently work in cybersecurity. I have been in program management for the last 2 years. Being in program management, I touch about all aspects of the business processes within my program like technical expertise, workflow management, delivery, and finance. Virginia Tech is at the tip of the spear when it comes to MBA programs of the future. The MBA at Virginia Tech can be tailor-made for information technology and cybersecurity professionals. We are one of the only schools which offers an in-person MBA that can focus on IT and cyber management. I am blessed to have the opportunity to take classes, such as ‘Cybersecurity Program Design and Operations’, to learn from experts in the field that translate directly to my career. Since the beginning of my transition out of the military, starting VT MBA is proving to be the best decision that I have made.”
