Villanova, Pa., August 31, 2018 – Beginning this fall semester, the Villanova School of Business (VSB) will be partnering with the Barron’s in Education Program to offer its students, faculty and staff digital subscriptions to Barron’s online content due to the generosity of Northern Trust.

“It is an honor to partner with Barron’s in Education to provide our students, faculty and staff additional real-world insight into investment topics and global market trends,” said Joyce E. A.

“Engaging with and investing in the communities we serve has been a guiding principle at Northern Trust since our founding more than 125 years ago,” said Henry P. Johnson, President of Northern Trust Wealth Management - East Region. “We are thus pleased to underwrite the Barron’s in Education Program at Villanova School of Business, knowing the important value this resource will provide to business school students in their current coursework, their improved knowledge of the investment and finance landscape and, ultimately, their future success as business and community leaders.”  

This program, supported by Barron’s and Northern Trust who wish to improve financial literacy and proficiency in universities across the nation, provides multiple benefits to students pursuing a career in business and faculty looking to make greater strides in their fields.
