Virginia Tech Evening MBA Scholarship Recipients - Spring 2018

Meet the highly accomplished students who received MBA program scholarship awards this past spring:


Girish Kharat - The Virginia Tech MBA program has helped me understand how businesses work beyond technology initiatives. Coming from the engineering background and working all these years as a technologist, I had myopic view towards business decisions. With the learnings from this program, I am able to understand strategic planning, think divergently, and develop leadership skills which are paramount in leadership roles. Enrolling in such a nationally-ranked MBA program is already proving to be a good investment of time and money.


Syed Mansoor - "Virginia Tech Evening MBA is a key driver of positive change in my professional career and it has given me the knowledge and opportunity to acquire and strengthen my current professional position. VT MBA's relevant course offerings and highly qualified faculty and administration are an asset to the program."


Rich Mack - "Starting my Virginia Tech Evening MBA this Fall, I immediately recognized the value in the degree. Within the first month I was able to apply concepts I was learning in class to my everyday work. Working as a Sales Manager for a manufacturing company, we collaborate with all facets of the organization on a day to day basis. The topics explored in the Virginia Tech Evening MBA allow me to better communicate with colleagues across organizational borders. Not only has it already improved my intracompany communication, it has also improved my ability to understand my customer's actions and requests. I look forward to the continuation of these trends through the rest of my time at Virginia Tech."


Jackie Glass - The Virginia Tech MBA program has expanded my knowledge of all business units faster and more efficiently than any on-the-job training could do. It has allowed me to explore different fields while gaining valuable networking opportunities and in-depth experience in my chosen field. I am thankful such a highly-ranked MBA program with excellent professors, staff, and students is available to me in the DC area!


Nidaal Jubran - For me, there was never a question that I would return to school for my MBA. Although this is still the beginning of my journey, my experience with the Virginia Tech faculty and student body have been enriching and more rewarding than I could have anticipated. The program has opened my eyes to a variety of disciplines within the Virginia Tech MBA program. I found that I have developed a passion for Accounting and Finance in particular, and I look forward to gaining knowledge of these topics in greater detail in the semesters to come. Combined with my background in statistics and marketing, I am confident that a Virginia Tech MBA will not only help me to reach new heights in my career, but may also afford me with the leadership skills to mentor and support other young professionals as they chart their own course for development.

"Choosing to go back and get an MBA was the best investment I could have made for my career. I was hired directly out of the program and given a generous raise and an opportunity to manage global teams in a field that I love, It has already paid for itself. In addition to building my resume and helping my find a better job, the program allowed me to build a network that will last for many years to come."

"I received my BS in Mechanical Engineering from VT in 2003 and due to the tough job market I stayed to get my MBA as part of the evening MBA program. I completed the program while working full time in my technical field. It was a great decision for me and helped to make me a more well-rounded engineer. It has opened several opportunities in my career in leadership and enabled me to work more effectively across multiple disciplines."
