Through its Executives and Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EEiR) program, provides its business students with opportunities to engage with accomplished executives and entrepreneurs from the business community.
This program exemplifies the Huizenga College's commitment to its students, as well as NSU's Mission and Core Values. The coaching sessions offered by our Executives and Entrepreneurs in Residence allow business students to learn about the business environment, beyond the formal curriculum andclassroom setting.
EEiR's visit the Carl DeSantis building on the main campus throughout the academic year, attending prescheduled mentoring sessions with students.
Students meet for an hour, usually two-on-one with an EEiR, to discuss career goals and real-world business perspectives. Our EEiR’s also participate in special programs and panels from time to time, engaging both students and faculty and sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience. Open to both undergraduate and graduate Huizenga College students, the Executives and Entrepreneurs-in-Residence program provides a singular experience for our students as they prepare for successful business careers.
