Summer Business Institute

sbi

VSB’s Summer Business Institute (SBI), a full-time, 16-credit program held on Villanova’s campus, focuses on finance, economics, accounting, marketing, management, and corporate responsibility. Created exclusively for non-business majors in 1997, SBI has educated more than 1,400 students in the fundamentals of business.

Through the Institute, students gain fluency and competency in business basics. The unique and interactive Professional Success course, designed to help students develop their professional brand and job search skills as well as gain exposure to career options and industry representatives, complements the business curriculum.

Regardless of desired outcome – complementing a primary field of study, developing entrepreneurial interests, pursuing a career in business, and/or gaining a personal understanding of the economy – SBI provides the foundation.

The program not only provides you with an understanding of key business fundamentals and career development strategies, but also delivers a wide array of additional benefits:

  • Diversified academic credentials
  • Enhanced professional competence and confidence
  • Refined problem-solving and decision-making abilities
  • Expanded communication and teamwork skills
  • Broadened perspectives regarding career options
