The EMBA program at Virginia Tech was one of the most rewarding educational experiences of my career. We were constantly challenged by our faculty and our classmates. Applying experience and new techniques throughout this 18-month course of study led directly to my career advances in the last several years. Choosing this program was definitely one of the best professional choices I have made.
