You needn’t step foot in a classroom. All courses are online and asynchronous. There are no residency requirements. However, if you are near Northern Virginia or Blacksburg, VA feel free to use the campus resources as needed. Fuzzy slippers optional.×
The Virginia Tech MIT program allows you the flexibility to complete the program at your pace. We understand the demands on your time from your career, family, and personal life. Most students choose to take one or two classes a semester. With careful planning, you may choose to accelerate your studies; up to four classes a semester are available which would be considered a full-time load. You have five years to complete your degree. Slow & steady or fast & furious. Your call.×
Foundation courses must be completed prior to taking courses that constitute different modules. Some background is necessary for these foundation courses. Specifically, the entering student is expected to have some experience programming in a modern language such as Java, C, C++, or C#.
If you plan to complete the Software Development Module, the first class in that series (CS 5044) requires that you are proficient in Java Programming. An online course that meets this requirement is ITP 120, Java Programming I, specifically offered through Virginia Western Community College. It is tailored to VTMIT students needing preparation for CS5044. See ITP120 Java Programming I for more information. This class is highly recommended for those who have no Java experience, or those who need a refresher.×

MIT or MBA? How about both! Virginia Tech is pleased to offer this unique dual degree in information technology and business administration. Here’s how this sequential degree offering works:
Start the MIT degree, and plan your 11 courses (33-credit hours) to include 5 (15-credit hours) courses from your choice of the following list in your plan of study:
Upon successful completion of the MIT program (3.0 GPA or better), you will reapply for the MBA program* as a formality (admission is guaranteed), and then complete an additional 11-courses to complete the MBA degree.
Do the math: MBA: 48 credit hours. MIT: 33 credit hours. 15 transfer credits.
48 + 33 = 81 - 15
Total = 66 credit hours/22 courses for the two degrees.
Save time, money, and SANITY!
