Virginia Commonwealth’s MBA program blends theory, practical experience and networking to fully prepare students for success in the business world. Small class sizes, challenging coursework and constant interaction with leaders in the Richmond business community are key distinguishing features.

In recent years, VCU has earned national recognition for the strength of its MBA program. The Princeton Review has included Virginia Commonwealth on its list of 300 “Best Business Schools.” According to Bloomberg Businessweek, the part-time program at VCU ranks #51 nationally, with particularly high marks in average salary increase for graduates (#7 overall) and post-MBA outcomes (#12).

Even more tellingly, MBA students have consistently given the program high marks in terms of strength of curriculum (A+), caliber of classmates (A+) and quality of teaching (A).

Finally, Virginia Commonwealth’s alumni network maintains a very active presence in the Richmond area and elsewhere. Those alumni contribute their experience to enrich the MBA program itself and serve as valuable professional contacts for recent graduates.
