Business Administration (BBA)

Villanova’s part-time business programs, one of the few part-time business programs in the area fully accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, boasts a strong reputation for its small class size and outstanding faculty.

A Villanova Business Administration degree will provide you with a firm grasp of business and economic fundamentals and the ability to analyze business problems quantitatively, along with proficiency in written and oral communication, an awareness of moral values and responsibility.

As a Villanova business student, you will initially complete introductory accounting, economics, business law, and statistics courses and follow with an in-depth study of the fields of finance, marketing, and management.

For details on degree requirements, please review the current course curriculum for a Bachelor of  Business Administration or refer to the latest edition of Villanova's Undergraduate Catalog.
