Virginia Tech’s Evening MBA announced that students will return to its Falls Church center for classes this August. The Evening MBA program is among the best in the country and the top part-time MBA program in Virginia, according to a 2022 survey of the nation’s top graduate schools by U.S. News & World Report.

“We know many students choose the Evening MBA because they value the in-person interactions they have with classmates and faculty members,” said Rebecca McGill, associate director of MBA recruiting at Virginia Tech. “We’re excited to return to in-person classes and provide those rich learning and networking opportunities that some find they’ve missed in the online environment.”

At the same time, McGill says there has been a high level of interest in Virginia Tech’s recently launched Online MBA.

“We were pleased with the level of interest for our first Online MBA cohort, and I think that reflects the changing needs and preferences of today’s professionals after a year of adapting to remote work,” said McGill.

Dana Hansson, director of MBA programs at Virginia Tech, says it’s important to adapt to meet students wherever their needs are. “Our strategic focus since 2013 has been to provide working professionals with flexible options that fit into their personal and professional lives,” she said.

Virginia Tech’s current suite of programs includes the Evening MBA, Online MBA and the Ballston-based Executive MBA. All are part-time formats designed with working professionals in mind.

Applications for the Evening MBA program are due July 1. Learn more about Virginia Tech’s MBA programs at mba.vt.edu.

Featured Property of the Week: 5315 Macarthur Blvd NW

“Contemporary luxury in Kent, a premier NW Neighborhood. Don’t miss this contemporary gem in one of the most desirable neighborhoods D.C. has to offer. Built in 1966 and renovated in 2018 (with all new windows in 2021), 5315 MacArthur Blvd in Kent has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, plenty of natural light, pristine hardwoods throughout, a separate dining room, and a fabulous vaulted-ceiling, four-season room, both of which open onto a gorgeous stone patio. And that’s just a general description. You have to see what the owners have done to make this home a contemporary paradise. There are custom touches everywhere you look. A custom-designed Scandinavian banister. Fantastic European kitchen featuring a gas cooktop, stainless appliances and plenty of cabinet space. Heated floors in all three full baths. Luxurious master bath with his/her sinks and large walk-in shower. Tons of closet space in the master bedroom. Dimmable recessed lighting throughout. Wall-mounted TVs with hidden wiring. Custom glass wine storage closet. The washer and dryer are new this year. And just wait till you stand on the incredible stone patio and go up the Zen-like steps to the rear garden area. Not only is the house wonderful, but it puts you in the much sought-after Kent neighborhood, giving you the ability to get out of the city at night without really getting out of the city. If you don’t already know about Kent, you’ll be amazed that such a place exists right inside D.C. Kent is quiet, tree-lined and filled with beautiful homes. While someone is taking a walk and admiring your house, you’ll be strolling elsewhere admiring another. This true getaway, tucked right here in NW, is so beautiful both inside and outside, no written description is going to do it justice.”

Dear PoPville readers,

We are proud to announce that we have increased the starting wage at Well-Paid Maids.

As of last month, our minimum wage is $20 per hour. That’s up from $17 per hour and reflects a 16% raise in compensation. In addition, every worker still receives a full benefits package, including 22 paid days off per year; health, dental and vision insurance; and 100% employer-paid commuting costs. And, as always, everyone we hire is a true employee, not an independent contractor, which means they receive protections such as unemployment and workers’ compensation insurance.

Why did we do it? Right now you read about lots of employers raising wages to try to attract new hires, but we’ve never had a problem finding applicants. For us, this is about honoring the commitment of our employees and staying true to our name.
