Virginia Tech’s Evening MBA program ranking in U.S. News & World Report  has improved to No. 7 among the nation’s part-time MBA programs, according to the 2018 survey released today. It was ranked No. 16 for the previous two years.

The MBA program, offered by the Pamplin College of Business, serves aspiring business leaders in the Washington, D.C., area with classes taught at the Northern Virginia Center. As the college’s flagship MBA program, the Evening MBA has seen significant growth in recent years.

“Our Evening MBA’s top 10 ranking solidifies Virginia Tech’s position among the premier part-time MBA programs in the country and is unsurpassed in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.,” said Pamplin Dean Robert Sumichrast.  “We intentionally focused on enhancing our Evening MBA as we suspended the full-time MBA.”

“Working professionals enjoy the convenience of evening classes, a flexible schedule that fits within demanding lives, and building their network with the vast Hokie Nation,” said Dana Hansson, director of the Evening MBA program.

Parviz Ghandforoush, associate dean for graduate programs, credits the climb in rankings to students who are highly academically qualified and professionally accomplished, faculty who are deeply engaged in teaching and research, and program staff who have created a positive learning community.
