Professional Development

We are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, which is why we offer unique and individualized ways to inspire and support your professional development.

Executive Coaching Program

Your time in the Villanova EMBA program will be a transformational journey, both professionally and personally, and your executive coaching experience is an integral part of that journey. Executive coaching is an opportunity to collaborate one-on-one with a highly-skilled coach to explore new ways to make the most out of your life and your career. Our coaches have extensive management experience in a range of industries and you will be paired with a coach that is the best fit for your unique goals. Together you and your coach will address challenges that confront you today in your professional role and you will create a personalized roadmap for professional development and lifelong learning based on your unique strengths and aspirations. The coaching journey asks you to examine and transform yourself in all areas of your life — family, community, and career. As an Executive MBA student, you will leverage coaching to find deeper self-awareness, build on your talents, and create a vision for your future.

Strengths-Based Learning

Early in the program, you will be matched with a team based on each individual's unique strengths. This ensures that you not only learn from the course material, but also from the skills and perspective of your cohort.
