        2014-2015, Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

        The VIU program was an unforgettable experience

        Whenever anyone asks me where to study in the USA, I always whole-heatedly suggest Washington, DC area. It is an absolutely amazing place to build connections and the best job opportunities are located here. It’s been an amusing three semesters at Virginia International University and an experience that has led to personal and professional growth. I highly recommend the MBA program here at Virginia International University and believe it has given me a strong set of skills that will be valuable for the rest of my life.
