College Receives Provisional Certificate to Operate

by | Dec 11, 2019

The Virginia Business College (VBC), a new college located in Bristol, Virginia, was granted a Provisional Certificate to operate by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) on Tuesday, October 29.

“This is a significant step forward for the Virginia Business College,” said Dr. Gene Couch, President, of the 4-year, private, non-profit college. “This approval will allow us to begin recruitment of the inaugural class of students. We anticipate a site visit by SCHEV in the Spring of 2020, which is required prior to our final approval.”

The college is located on the former campus of Virginia Intermont College located on Moore Street. The Virginia Business College will primarily be a residential college, but will also accommodate commuter students and online leaners. Significant improvements have been made to the campus and will continue in the months ahead.

Virginia Business College will offer seven business concentrations to bachelor degree-seeking students. The seven concentrations are: accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship, human resource management, information technology management, management/leadership, and marketing.

VBC expects to enroll students in August 2020. For more information, or to schedule a visit to campus, please contact: 276.644.3822
