Melinda German



Welcome! I encourage you to explore all that we offer in the undergraduate business program. From the curriculum to professional development to experiential learning to global exposure, you will find countless opportunities to grow here. It’s an important time in your life, and we want you to thrive.

The Clay Center at VSB and the O’Donnell Center for Professional Development at VSB are dedicated to providing exceptional student services every step of the way. Professional development is a perfect example. Through our innovative Backpack to Briefcase program, we build professional development into the curriculum every year to provide you with the essential skills to launch your career.

This end-to-end support applies to academic advising, internship search strategies, major selection, study abroad support and more. It’s rare to find this level of support for undergraduates but it’s a natural part of who we are at VSB. Here we live our core values, especially with our commitment to community. We believe your success is our success, and that mindset shapes everything we do.

I strongly encourage you to visit in person. Meet our faculty, our students and our staff. Discover our community at the Villanova School of Business. And please send me your questions—I would be delighted to hear from you.
