Dual Degree with VT MBA Program
In today’s digital age, as technology drives innovation throughout the enterprise, business acumen and technology expertise are emerging as essential skills.
A dual technology and business degree from Virginia Tech provides professionals on both sides of the fence with the flexibility they need to sharpen a wide array of skills while continuing to build a career.
Virginia Tech's dual degree Master of Business Administration and Master of Information Technology is available to students based in the greater Washington, D.C., metro area.
Students enrolled in Virginia Tech's #4 nationally-ranked Master of Information Technology program have the opportunity to earn the #19 nationally-ranked Evening MBA degree in a compressed timeframe and at a lower cost by double-counting up to five courses.
Both degree programs are designed for working professionals, offering students the flexibility to contribute to business growth, revenue, and innovation as a working professional today—and as a substantially more marketable leader tomorrow.
While enrolled in the Master of Information Technology program (11 courses totaling 33 credit hours) take approved courses to fulfill their degree requirements, up to five of which can then be double-counted towards completion of the Evening MBA degree.
Upon successful completion of the VT-MIT program with a 3.0 GPA or better, students must formally apply to the Evening MBA program. Admission is guaranteed.
Students then complete the Evening MBA program (17 courses totaling 48 credit hours). Dual-degree students can earn the additional degree by taking as few as 12 additional courses if they have appropriately planned their study with both their VT-MIT and Evening MBA academic advisors.
The dual degree MBA + MIT program provides a best-of-both-worlds, hybrid learning experience through a combination of in-person and online coursework.
A 100% online format for the Master of Information Technology degree provides flexibility for working professionals and opportunity to work with students from across the country.
An in-person class format for the Evening MBA program encourages students to establish valuable working relationships with classmates, and engage with top-notch faculty.
Dual-degree students starting with the VT-MIT program can expect to take all of their early courses online. Once dual-degree students have completed their MIT degree and formally applied to the MBA program, the majority of their remaining courses will take place in-person at the Northern Virginia Center in Falls Church, VA.
Both degree programs are highly flexible and allow you to determine your courseload each semester.
