Alumni Testimonials

"SBI has opened many doors to the business world for me, which I would not have access to if I had not enrolled. As a senior, applying for jobs is a crucial component of my final year at Villanova. Many potential employers have commented on the impressiveness of the SBI curriculum. The program has been beneficial in interviews to discuss as well as getting second interviews with companies."
Shannon Walsh, A&S Communication ’13, SBI ’12

"I cannot overstate the importance of developing a well-rounded academic portfolio before entering the professional world. Coming from a liberal arts college with a political science major straight on to law school, my interactions with the business world were very sheltered prior to attending SBI. SBI's 10 weeks were the most informative 10 weeks of my life . . . as a result, I walked away with information that made me a more confident law student, investor, and citizen.”

Assistant Professor of Taxation, American College
