Financial Services, Real Estate & Insurance

Welcome to the Financial Services, Real Estate & Insurance Connections Community!

These areas are unique and some take a specialized skill set or particular mindset that can be obtained during your time at Villanova. Some common threads running through them include an interest in working in the fast-paced environment of the private sector, while thinking, solving problems and communicating with internal and external clients. No matter which path you take, your work will be varied. Many organizations have an “all hands on deck” mentality, which means you may be involved in several aspects of the business and your role can morph and change very rapidly.
