Villanova University Online MBA Program Structure

The Villanova University School of Business Online MBA program consists of 21 courses, which are completed over six semesters (two terms per semester). The program, which consists of 48-total credits, can be completed in two years. While it is designated as a digital program, students do meet in person with fellow classmates for group projects, as well as faculty, during the program period.

There are five specialization options: finance; marketing; analytics; international business; and strategic management.


The Villanova Online MBA curriculum is divided into three principle sections: core courses; Villanova School of Business pillars; and capstone projects.

Students undertake a “Leadership Challenge campus residency” in their first or second semesters, “and continue in two practicum experiences at the mid-point and end of the program,” according to the school. At the midpoint, students complete a Social Enterprise Consulting Practicum, which “involves students working in teams for a client serving the common good and performing work that gives back to the community.”

As part of the capstone course option at the end of the program, students have the option to take a seven-day international immersion.
