Completing my business minor at SBI was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had at Villanova thus far. First of all, I learned so much in such a short amount of time about many areas of business. I was challenged academically throughout the summer and I’m sure that the knowledge that I’ve gained will come in handy down the road in my career.
In addition to giving me a basic understanding of business, SBI has given me the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in four years. The credits that I earned last summer put me a year ahead of schedule. So, I’m completing a five year Bachelor’s in Mathematics, Master’s in Applied Statistics program in four years. I believe that, together, the business minor, bachelor’s degree, and master’s degree will make me very marketable as I search for a career in the actuarial sciences. Recently, I was offered a summer intern position at an actuary company near my home. SBI gave me a basic business understanding that contributed to my value as a candidate for the position.
I decided to become an SBI Ambassador because I want to impress upon other students the value that SBI can give them. I am very grateful for the opportunities SBI has given me thus far, and am so glad that I spent my summer at Villanova last year.
