Pamplin Falls Church Graduate Programs Moving to Innovation Campus Starting Spring 2025

We are thrilled to announce that the Pamplin College of Business academic programs in Falls Church, Virginia are eagerly looking forward to relocating to Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus in Alexandria, Virginia. The state-of-the-art 300,000-square-foot, 11-story building, set to open in Spring 2025, will provide a cutting-edge environment for our graduate programs. 

“Embracing the transition to the Innovation Campus is a testament to our commitment to advancing teaching, learning, and research in the digital age,” said Dr. Parviz Ghandforoush, associate dean for Pamplin graduate programs. “By intertwining the expertise of our esteemed faculty and the aspirations of our dedicated students, we plan to create a dynamic environment that propels innovation, collaboration, and excellence. This shift presents an extraordinary opportunity for our face-to-face and online programs to flourish, empowering students to prosper in an ever-evolving technological landscape.”

Innovation Campus: A Look Ahead

The Innovation Campus positions Virginia Tech near the nation’s capital, diverse industries, and leading tech companies, including Amazon’s HQ2.

Our new campus will feature state-of-the-art academic classrooms, cutting-edge research labs, and collaborative spaces—all meticulously crafted to elevate the quality of education we provide.

The recently opened Potomac Yard-VT Metro station, just a brief five-minute walk from Academic Building One, ensures seamless connections to Reagan National Airport, Arlington, Crystal City, and the entire DC Area.

We believe that this relocation will not only offer a modern and innovative setting for your academic pursuits but will also create an environment that fosters collaboration and growth. We look forward to welcoming you to our new academic home and are confident that this move will contribute significantly to your overall Pamplin graduate program experience.
