Villanova School of Business (VSB) at Villanova University

A full-time, on-site, 16-credit program designed specifically for non-business students.

Students are immersed in an accelerated curriculum taught by full-time VSB faculty, and exposed to fundamental business disciplines: accounting, finance, marketing, management, economics, and business law.  A professional success course complements the experience, introducing participants to practicing professionals, exposing them to an array of career options, and empowering them to develop their own unique, personal brand.

The SBI experience ends with a capstone project where students produce and present a competitive, real-world, marketing campaign to SBI’s corporate partner.

A SBI credential adds value to any degree and is a wise investment in the future of students from all backgrounds, regardless of career aspirations.  For more details, CLICK HERE or visit
