Virginia Tech has recently piloted an exciting new program, Credit Corps, in partnership with Atlantic Union Bank. The unique experiential learning program is aimed at enhancing students’ skills in credit risk analysis, business analytics, teamwork, and portfolio management. By participating in this program, students gain experience in banking and risk management by participating in actual loans with their bank partner with real money from the Virginia Tech Foundation.

“You have to experience the environment for yourself in order to receive the full benefit. It is my desire for every woman to be able to attend and leave with the sense of community & empowerment that is developed and created by this conference.”
“It’s rare, in our industry, that you have a group full of women together to network and grow our careers – you can’t help but feel empowered in that room and when you leave.”
“The VBA is very passionate about the next generation of leaders in Virginia banks. It is refreshing to have an organization that prides itself on taking such an interest in so many future leaders.”
“Every time I leave a VBA event, I am excited to come back to work and share what I’ve learned. Even if my bank can’t send me in the future, I see it as something I would pay for because it would be an investment in myself. I’m hoping next year others can attend as well.”
“This was a really great program with lots of good ideas on how to engage students of all ages. Love the teamwork and the different ways information was given to us made it more entertaining!”
“The best part of the VBA Bank Day Scholarship Program was having an inside view of the world of local banking. I learned about the unique personal approach and community impact local banks can have, and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the wide range of career opportunities within the banking industry.”
