VSB OPTIONS FOR NON-BUSINESS STUDENTS

Full-time matriculated Villanova students from Engineering, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Science have the option to apply for transfer to VSB, or apply for a business minor. These are all competitive, application-based programs with different timelines and admission decisions.

For an overview and comparison of the business minor options, listed below, please view this 15 minute video.

SUMMER BUSINESS INSTITUTE

VSB’s Summer Business Institute (SBI), a full-time, 16-credit program, provides an opportunity for Villanova students to earn a Business Minor and non-Villanova students to earn a Business Certificate – the equivalent of a business minor. The program focuses on finance, economics, accounting, marketing, management, analytics and information technologies. Created exclusively for non-business majors in 1997, SBI has educated more than 2,000 students in the fundamentals of business.

  

ACADEMIC YEAR BUSINESS MINOR PROGRAM

VSB’s Academic Year Business Minor program is administered by the Clay Center at VSB and is designed for full-time undergraduates enrolled in other Villanova colleges. Students admitted to the program take a required set of courses directly from the business core curriculum and are in class with VSB students during the academic year.

  

INTERNAL TRANSFERS

Internal Transfer admission to the Villanova School of Business is competitive. Admission decisions are based on admission credentials and current academic records. Generally, these criteria must be comparable to those of students accepted as first-year students in VSB. Interested students must attend an information session prior to applying.

  

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS FOR NON-BUSINESS STUDENTS

In addition to the competitive Internal Transfer and Business Minor programs (Academic Year and Summer Business Institute programs), there are several other academic and extracurricular opportunities in which students can actively participate and thereby expose themselves to VSB and the external ‘business community’.
