Location

We’re not in Blacksburg - learn more about our Northern Virginia location.

In 1997, Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia dedicated the Northern Virginia Center (NVC), 7054 Haycock Road, a 105,000-square-foot building located adjacent to the West Falls Church Metro station.

Administrative offices for the center and for the Graduate School in the National Capital Region are headquartered in the Falls Church facility.

Schedule Flexibility

The Virginia Tech Evening MBA program allows you the flexibility to complete the program at your pace. We understand the demands on your time from your career, family, and personal life. Most students choose to take two classes a semester, coming to the Northern Virginia Center two evenings a week. You may choose to accelerate your studies; up to four classes a semester are available which would be considered a full-time load. Course work and study abroad are available during summer semester.

Career Advancement

Students in the Virginia Tech Evening MBA program are working professionals seeking to advance their current career, explore growth in a different industry, or entrepreneurs developing their business acumen. Career mentoring opportunities exist with our MBA program alumni. You will be joining a vast network of alumni in the Hokie Nation, allowing many possibilities for growing your professional network.

Business Intelligence and Analytics

Big data seems to be everywhere. The systematic analysis of vast collections of business data to inform business decisions has permeated organizations and industries from healthcare to education to marketing. The Virginia Tech Evening MBA builds on information technology tools for analyzing data by incorporating business intelligence and analytics throughout course work, lecture, and discussions.
