"Villanova's Masters of Accounting with Data Analytics (MACDA) program is world class. - The program focuses on making students exceptional first year employees. - This program focuses on how to apply your knowledge and skills to your first job out of college. - The inclusion of data analytics in the accounting degree is a factor that should not go unnoticed. The big accounting firms have invested millions of dollars in analytical tools and software that will inevitably change the accounting industry drastically. Having the colleague experience and technical knowledge of why and how firms use data analytics will add tremendous value to your collegiate accolades. - This program will teach you more in one semester than you've learned in the four years of undergrad. - Going to class is never a struggle when you are working with the professors at Villanova and especially in the MACDA program. The program is taught by experienced professional, many of whom have devoted their lives to accounting and continue to research and publish literature about the accounting field. Do not miss out on the opportunity to work with exceptional professionals and become one yourself. - Go Cats!"

"Villanova is a amazing institution with some of the best professors on the east coast. The class sizes are small which allows students to interact with professors and immerse themselves in their course of study. The campus is beautiful and nestled in a safe suburban area of Philadelphia. Villanova has a very strong alumni network helping students graduate with full time jobs lined up. The cats have excellent school spirit and a national championship title in basketball to brag about!"

"The Biology B.S. program at Villanova is one of the best preparatory educational programs out there. The quality of the instruction is one that truly reinvigorated my passion for learning. Villanova faculty and staff care for their students to not only learn the material but to UNDERSTAND it and apply it to their lives. As a biology major, I was constantly presented with research opportunities, educational trips, clinical studies, and engaging lab session that reinforced what I learned and brought it to life, granting me a wholesome learning experience. Ultimately, the science department at Villanova is dedicated towards the formation of proper scientists, health professionals, professors etc. I am proud to be amongst their ranks."

"I had an excellent experience at Villanova University. I was originally attracted to Villanova due to the tight-knit community, strong academics, and solid network. Based primarily on those three main reasons, I would highly recommend Villanova to anyone looking for those characteristics in a university. The tight-knit community was the most important factor to me when choosing the school I wanted to attend. When I visited the campus the fall of my senior year of high school, I was blown away by how friendly the students were, how highly they spoke of the school, and how close students were not only to each other, but also to the faculty. That tight-knit community was only further proven to me once I actually enrolled. Villanova students have a lot of school spirit, partial credit to the strong basketball team, which I believe contributes to the supportive and encouraging community. Next to the tight-knit community feel, I was also drawn to Villanova due to its strong academics. The business school had been climbing in the rankings in recent years, and I knew I wanted to pursue a degree in Finance. Villanova Business School was known for having a rigorous course load with many classes that would prepare me for a career in Finance. Having successfully completed three Finance internships during school, and ultimately landing a job at Deutsche Bank after graduation, I can say with confidence that Villanova prepared me extremely well. Finally, Villanova was attractive to me because of the solid network. I believe this is a factor that is often overlooked, but one that is very important. It ties into the tight-knit community that exists at Villanova, and because that community is so strong, it extends after graduation through the alumni network. This was very important to me because I knew I wanted to work on Wall Street after graduation, and Villanova places very well in New York City at the Wall Street banks. Villanova alumni are more than willing to help out current students and assist them in landing internships and full-time jobs. As a result, it is no surprise that I wound up at Deutsche Bank in a division dominated by Villanova alumni. As mentioned earlier, I truly had an incredible four years at Villanova. Attending school there was one of the best decisions of my life. The tight-knit community, strong academics, and solid network that I experienced while at school have been carried with me into my life post-graduation. Villanova gave me life-long friends, a start to a successful career in my dream industry, and a huge network of people to support me."

"Villanova is a university that is very inclusive and lively. There are many opportunities to get involved and make a difference on a large and impactful campus. Classrooms are sized fairly small which is beneficial, as it allows more contact and feedback from professors. The professional connections and networking opportunities offered are also extremely beneficial."

  • Degree: English
"Villanova is a great place to study and learn. Despite being in the English program, I also was exposed to a wide variety of coursework in other disciplines, which really helped to make me a well rounded individual upon graduation. In terms of English, the professors are generally very willing to help outside of class and put in a lot of work to ensure student success, while simultaneously demanding a lot of their students. I would encourage any English (or for that matter, any student period) to check out the Humanities department at Villanova. This department combines philosophy, poetry, literature, theology and political science and really became my second home (and second major) in my time at Villanova. Overall, like many colleges, Villanova will give you back what you put in. If you make efforts to challenge yourself, go outside comfort zones and discover new people and ideas, the time you spend there will be truly awesome and life-changing."

"Entering my second year of the Graduate Program, I am nothing but satisfied. I have taken an amazing course load and made amazing connections. It is a great faculty, but they have a heavy workload just like the students. So far all professors have made time for me when I was available, but advising is worse than the professors. Not a big problem in the end, just must check your credits. Overall, great experience."
