Academic Year Business Minor
The Academic Year Business Minor is designed for full-time undergraduates enrolled in other Villanova colleges (Note: Due to scheduling conflicts, Nursing students should consider the Summer Business Institute program instead of the Academic Year Business Minor program). Students admitted to the program take classes with VSB students during the academic year. A minimum of four semesters are typically required to complete the minor.
Applications for the Academic Year Business Minor program are reviewed once per year after spring grades are posted. Acceptance is determined on a competitive basis. Students are required to attend an information session held by VSB before applying. Dates and times of information sessions are posted at the start of the fall and spring semesters on the program’s website.
Applications are available online at business.villanova.edu. The application deadline is May 1st and students are notified of acceptance in late May. Any questions should be directed to The Clay Center at (610) 519-5532 or by email at email@example.com.
