Part-Time MBA highlights

  • Schedule Built to Fit Your Busy Life

    In-person classes are held at the W&M Peninsula Center in Newport News, just off I-64. Each 3-credit hour course meets one evening per week, 7:00-9:50 pm. Most students take two courses per semester year-round to finish in about 2.5 years. Our schedule flexibility allows you to accelerate, reduce your pace or take a semester off, to fit your needs.

  • Working Professional MBA Advantages

    Earning your MBA as a working professional has distinct advantages: You maintain career momentum, maximize earnings, stay current with industry and technology developments, and network with professionals like yourself who are upwardly mobile and employed at all the big companies in the area. And you will apply what you learn immediately, impressing your boss and your boss’s boss.

  • Immediate ROI for Students and Employers

    From Day One, return on investment for you and your organization includes development of leadership and strategic decision-making skills, exposure to new and innovative business methods, improved communication, and increased analytical expertise.

As a Part-Time MBA student, you will have the option to take international business electives that include faculty-led travel to locations such as Latin America, Europe and Asia.
