Alana Hoskin

'00 VSB

Partner/Principal, Deloitte

Favorite class at VSB and why?

My favorite class in undergraduate business school was my ERP Applications class with Dr. Wagner in my MIS program. It exposed me to enterprise resource planning applications and systems, specifically at the time SAP R/3 in a Box.

Most important thing you learned?

Villanova taught me to be forward thinking, build a sound character, disciplined mind, a healthy body (I was an NCAA athlete) and a resourceful, reasonable spirit.

Favorite Villanova memory?

Villanova provided me with many long-lasting memories, but one of my fondest memories has been what it taught me to be a strong, determined, and independent woman leader. Coach Jack St. Clair taught us on our Villanova Lightweight Crew team to be strong women leaders. I will never forget the team rowing meets down the East Coast, specifically a rowing meet at James Madison.
