The key mission of the CBA is to continually deliver opportunities in analytics for students at Villanova. The Center connects students and faculty across the university with industry professionals, alum in relevant roles and academic competitions to engage with the forefront of analytics.

We are dedicated to preparing VSB graduates to become analytics leaders in their organizations. We bring together industry experts and world-class faculty to create curricula and experiential programming that positions students to solve complex business problems using analytics.

As a student at Villanova - whether undergraduate or graduate – we hope you take advantage of the student clubs, corporate site visits and networking opportunities shared through the CBA.

The Center for Business Analytics aims to support students in these endeavors as they emerge. We will invite students to participate as we become aware of any new and relevant competitions.



The Center for Business Analytics supports the undergraduate Business Analytics Society (BAS), which was formed in the fall of 2013 and now has over 80 members. The BAS hosts speaker events, panel discussions, and workshops to help Villanova students learn what it takes to be successful in the field of analytics while providing networking and leadership development opportunities.



The Center for Business Analytics coordinates experiential learning opportunities for students across Villanova with our corporate partners. We have provided transport and activities in Philadelphia and New York and typically host one to two different visit days each semester.
