If it is a Windows Forms/WPF application, the answer is no. But you can run a Windows session on a Mac and run your VB.Net app from that VM. check http://www.parallels.com/landingpage/pd/windows-on-mac/

If it is a web application, the code runs on the server and it will run on a mac just as well.

There are alternatives, one called Mono (Mac, PC, Linux) and .NET Core to run .NET applications:
