Built to Lead
Think about what you expect from a great leader: creative problem-solver, strong business knowledge, clear communicator, adept with data and technology, polished, adaptable, globally aware, and ethical. We design our undergraduate business program for all this and more.
Our curriculum combines a liberal arts core with a solid business foundation while emphasizing the critical competencies for the future of work: data and analytics, strong communication skills, teamwork and responsible decision-making. We elevate our students further through professional development, experiential learning, global exposure and a strong advisory support network. Above all, we apply our Augustinian values every day to produce humble servant leaders who drive positive change everywhere they go.
EARN A DEGREE
Choosing the Villanova School of Business opens the door to a wide range of disciplines that can maximize your strengths and advance your interests. During your sophomore year, you will choose a major—or two—that fits your goals. If you find it difficult to make a choice, speak with an advisor from the Clay Center. Also, our faculty members routinely make time to talk to students through these important decisions.
VSB also provides options for students who wish to transfer to VSB or to apply for a business minor.
THE CLAY CENTER AT VSB
From the moment an undergraduate student walks on campus and until they graduate, the Clay Center supports their academic, personal and professional growth as an undergraduate.
Named in honor of the late VSB Dean Emeritus Alvin A. Clay, who was a dedicated alumnus, faculty member and dean, the Clay Center supports an undergraduate's journey through the curriculum to advising to professional development and more, the Clay Center offers a “one-stop shop” for all you need to thrive at VSB.
A Guide To Digging In During Winter Break
We care deeply about all aspects of your well-being and the Winter Break Guide was developed with that in mind. Your use of the guide is voluntary – feel free to take advantage of the information and opportunities that are appropriate for you, at the time that is right for you. We encourage you to “turn down the volume” for at least some portion of the winter break - take time for yourself and relax. If any point you want to “engage”, the Guide will be ready and waiting!
Our students receive support from a team of advisors throughout their VSB experience.
We deliver a rigorous, forward-looking curriculum that merges academics, professional development, global exposure, experiential learning and more.
