Intellectual curiosity. Integrity. Social responsibility. An awareness of the global marketplace. The desire to stay current. An open mind. A creative spirit. These ingredients run through our community at the Villanova School of Business (VSB)—and they are indicators of the type of students who are the best fit at VSB.
