VILLANOVA, Pa., December 2, 2015—The Villanova School of Business (VSB) was selected as one of nine universities to participate in the Envestnet Institute On Campus pilot program, a wealth management e-learning platform and certificate program. This semester, 22 VSB students – 17 undergraduates and five graduate students – are participating in the program.
Envestnet’s education program, which has been approved by the Money Management Institute, is taught at the student’s own pace. Students must complete a variety of educational activities which are strategically organized to provide a practical understanding of the wealth management industry.
Steve DeAngelis ’88 VSB, managing director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, serves on the Board of Governors for the Money Management Institute and recommended Villanova for Envestnet Institute’s On Campus program because of VSB’s high-caliber student body.
“VSB is proud to be selected to participate in this valuable program. It provides an opportunity for our students to understand the connection between the theory and practice of wealth management,” said Interim Dean Daniel Wright, PhD. “In the spring, additional spots will be offered to sophomores, juniors and graduate students seeking careers in this field.”
