Virginia Tech Professional MBA

Virginia Tech designed the Professional MBA program for working professionals who want to advance their career without taking time out of the workforce to pursue a traditional full-time MBA.

The Professional MBA program structure allows you the flexibility to balance personal and professional priorities with a high-quality education from Virginia Tech. Monthly in-person classes rotate between Virginia Tech centers in Richmond and Roanoke, while a virtual center in Hampton Roads provides a fully-online, interactive learning experience in between class meetings.

The cohort-based model of the Professional MBA brings together students with diverse academic and professional experience from across Virginia and regionally, creating an enriching classroom environment and professional network.
