Appian co-founder applauds analytics and security curriculum

Beckley said he applauds Virginia Tech’s commitment to investing in students, citing the proposed Global Business and Analytics Complex that promotes collaboration and teamwork and supports enhanced advising and career services.

During the Wells Fargo Wells Fargo Distinguished Speakers Series “fireside chat” with Pamplin Dean Robert Sumichrast, Michael Beckley (left) shared that he had no initial aspiration to co-found a multi-billion dollar company or even work at one.

"Changes at Virginia Tech and in higher education provide an opportunity for Pamplin to exceed its past achievements. The college must seize this opportunity to raise the aspirations and expectations of alumni, faculty, staff, and students." — Robert T. Sumichrast, Dean
