"The coaches at Meridian Resources have been very active in helping the students in the Executive MBA Program at Virginia Tech. Our students have a diverse educational and professional background and they represent all sorts of industries. The coaches at Meridian Resources, understand that these are professionals and executives with very specific professional development needs and they assist each student with a very professional service. I highly recommend Meridian Resources."
