GRADUATE PROGRAMS

The Villanova MBA provides a learning experience that equips students with the skills to innovate, adapt and lead in a world that is in continuously evolving. Our classes emphasize a practical, real-world education and promote work across disciplines. The part-time program allows students to take classes at their own pace or in an accelerated format either on our main campus, in Center City Philadelphia or online. Two embedded consulting projects bring classroom learning to life: one with a local nonprofit organization, and the other with a multinational firm. Our curriculum allows students to bring back what they are learning in the classroom to the office for an immediate impact. Executive MBA’s innovative learning environment is designed to encourage students to think differently, to collaborate with peers and to partner with faculty. The residential, weekend-based design allows students to immerse themselves in their learning and to begin building a lifelong network of business connections. The Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program is a rigorous, two semester, full-time degree program that includes hands-on interaction with the business world in addition to classroom study. MSF classes utilize VSB’s nationally recognized Applied Finance Lab, which provides access to the same advanced resources and real-time information used by Wall Street traders. The Master of Accounting with Data Analytics (MACDA) is an innovative one-year, full-time program that combines accounting with data and analytics, leadership and other essential skills to prepare students to become multi-dimensional accountants. The 30-credit MACDA program also provides students with advanced industry-specific credits which, when pooled with the appropriate undergraduate course work, results in exceptional knowledge in addition to the hours necessary to earn a CPA license. The Online Master of Science in Analytics (MSA) is expertly designed to expand your proficiency in the latest analytics technologies, applications and practices that are actively reshaping the business world. The program’s rigorous and comprehensive curriculum is taught by VSB’s world-class faculty of experts in business, analytics, statistics, mathematics and computer science —all of whom bring real-world expertise directly into your online classroom. Through the support of the Center for Business Analytics, one of VSB’s six centers of excellence, the program also includes industry projects and a final capstone experience. The Online Master of Science in Church Management (MSCM) program is an innovative, two-year graduate business program that provides a high-level skill set in church management. The MSCM is designed to meet the needs of an international student body of church leaders and managers—including parish business managers of diocesan and religious order departments, and those engaged in managing church-related social service ministries. It is ideal for professionals who cannot take leave from their positions to relocate and pursue full-time study. The MSCM can be completed online in only two years of part-time study.
