Danielle DonDiego
(DO '12, MBA '12)

"At the Pamplin College of Business, I was involved in many consulting projects with real companies, some of which were marketing medical devices and software for physician use."

Jason DiVito
(DO '12, MBA '12)

"I feel as though the MBA program opens a D.O. student's eyes to many additional potential avenues and opportunities that would not have been noticeable or obtainable without the degree. I knew before entering medical school that I wanted to obtain an MBA degree for the benefits it would offer me in the long term."

Program Overview

Virginia Tech MBA partners with the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) which allows VCOM students to simultaneously pursue a D.O./MBA degree. The MBA degree from Virginia Tech offers VCOM students additional academic challenge and real-world learning experience that will foster managerial, financial and administrative excellence in the healthcare profession. Most dual degree programs require an additional year of study, however, the length of time may be less or greater depending upon the program and the student’s background.
