John Leighton

'05 VSB

President, Office Basics, Inc.

Favorite class at VSB and why?

My favorite class was the Entrepreneurship program. I think it gave me the best foundation of academic theory blended with real-world application. We got to experience the life cycle of a business in a real environment. Working in a team environment and getting everyone working towards a common goal is an invaluable experience that is 100% applicable to the real world.

Most important thing you learned?

Have a very deep understanding of accounting. It is the language of business.

Favorite Villanova memory?

The first day, last day and everything in between.

What are you currently reading?

Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done by Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan.
