BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

EMBA students volunteer together.

VILLANOVA COMMUNITY

Students often enjoy spending their evenings participating in special cohort events or having dinner and drinks informally with classmates. The residential weekends offer many opportunities to develop stronger networks and friendships with your classmates and alumni.

FIRESIDE CHATS

Throughout the program you will have the opportunity to enjoy lunch with senior business leaders during “Fireside Chats.” These C-suite speakers provide perspective on leadership challenges and opportunities in their companies and industries. The intimate setting encourages an open exchange of ideas and a greater degree of accessibility than is typically encountered in the real world.

TEAMBUILDING ACTIVITIES

Periodically throughout the program, students have an opportunity to engage in interactive and collaborative activities that focus on teambuilding, problem solving, and goal setting. These activities allow students to re-connect with each other at the start of a semester, reflect on past learning in the EMBA program, and move forward with greater enthusiasm, energy, and purpose.

FAMILY EVENTS

We know family and significant others play an important role during the program, and we welcome them to be a part of your EMBA experience. We host family-themed events during which faculty, staff, students, and families can mingle in a social setting.
