Application Process

We know you are concerned about the admissions metrics—the average test scores, GPA range, and work experience of our student population. But at VSB, there is more to our students than a one-dimensional pie chart. A successful academic track record and a resume that reflects career progress just aren't enough.

Our students are unique. They come to VSB looking for professional growth, personal development, and to challenge those around them to become stronger business leaders. If you’re looking to be in an environment where you are expected to engage, to collaborate, and to question traditional ways of doing business, then you could be a good fit for the Villanova MAC program.

Application Deadlines

Application Requirements

  1. Completed online application for admission
  2. Official transcripts of academic credentials
    One official transcript from each postsecondary educational institution for which nine credit hours or more of course work was taken. 
  3. Two letters of recommendation
    Recommendations can be professional references from individuals who know you in an employment setting (internships work as well) and are written by a current/previous supervisor. For those students who do not have work experience, academic recommendations are welcomed. Please refrain from using personal recommendations (family, friends, etc.). 
  4. Resume
    Please prepare a business resume that includes your educational and professional information. 
  5. Two Essays
    The essay questions can be found on the online application.
  6. Non-refundable $65 application fee
    All applicants must pay a non-refundable application fee of $65. The fee is to be paid by credit card on the online application site when you submit.
  7. OPTIONAL: Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)
    MAC Applicants are not required to take the GMAT. Please arrange for official reports to be sent directly to Villanova University (Program Code: 8PP-NJ-48). We do not accept the GRE score in place of the GMAT. The Admissions Committee will consider your highest score if you have taken the test more than once.
