Is 30+ the new average age for MBA students? The Richmond MBA incoming spring class makes a strong case for this statement. More than half of the newly admitted students are above the age of 30. The potential for growth, both academically and professionally, becomes greater as the group becomes more diverse. The under 30 and over 30 students will bring different view points and experiences to the group. We're excited to see how each student progresses throughout the program. 

Age

20-25:18.2%

26-29: 27.3%

30+: 54.5%


In addition to the ages ranging from 20 years old to 51 years old, the incoming class will also surprise you with their wide array of backgrounds before coming to the Robins School of Business. 38.5% received their bachelor degree at a college or university outside the state of Virginia and three students have already received a higher level degree (masters degree, J.D., M.D.).
