There are two options for students to earn a business minor at VSB: the Academic Year Business Minor and the Summer Business Institute. Both of these programs are application-based and administered by the Clay Center. Students considering either of these programs should meet with their primary academic advisor and are required to attend a Business Minor information session before applying.
The Academic Year Business Minor is designed for full-time undergraduates enrolled in other Villanova colleges. Students admitted to the program take classes with VSB students during the academic year. It typically takes four semesters to complete the minor.
The Summer Business Institute (SBI) is a full-time, 10-week accelerated program created exclusively for non-business majors. Using a cohort-based model, SBI is designed to be completed in one summer with peers from other non-business majors.
Completion of either program may allow students to pursue a discipline–specific business minor or enroll in other VSB courses. VSB approval is required and additional coursework may be necessary.
