The Richmond MBA Student

Our students have extensive experience at leading firms across the city, state and nation, in industries ranging from healthcare to financial services.


The Richmond MBA isn't just about lessons in the classroom. It's the first dinner as a class during Opening Residency. It's baking bread in Latvia during the International Residency. It's meeting a client for the first time as part of the Capstone Project.
