Employee Education & Tuition Awards
The Huizenga College of Business can provide your employees with a business education that will provide skills needed to positively impact your company's revenue line. Bachelor's and master's degree programs in more than 20 fields of study are offered on campuses throughout Florida, online and even at the workplace.
On-site business programs provide custom-tailored degree programs that accommodate the work schedule of employees from your company. Rather than require your employees to travel to our campus, we bring our faculty to you. Courses are conveniently held on-site during evenings or on weekends. No wonder our on-site degree programs have earned a place inside the world's leading corporations, such as AT&T, UPS, American Express and ADT/Tyco.
The Huizenga College of Business's educational corporate partners also enjoy the benefit of a reduced tuition rate, and the option of a deferred payment plan.
NSU's Hudson Center of Entrepreneurship and Executive Education offers specialized programs to help company executives stay one step ahead of today's rapidly changing business environment. Through customized courses and workshops that meet the individual needs of your company, your management team will learn practical and professional insights.
As an educational corporate partner, your employees will be offered a discount on our open-enrollment, non-credit courses and workshops. A wide range of programs are offered in areas such as accounting, customer service, human resources, sales and sales management, project management, and lean six sigma. The Hudson Center's instructors are subject matter experts who draw on their own experiences and know firsthand what it takes to succeed in today's competitive business world.
If you're looking for a location to hold a meeting, entertain company shareholders, or host an event, NSU's state-of-the-art facilities can accommodate most any occasion. Home to the Huizenga College of Business, the five-story Carl DeSantis Building includes three video and teleconferencing classrooms, 38 general-purpose classrooms, a lecture theater, boardrooms, and multipurpose and conference facilities.
In addition, educational corporate partners have access to our new Huizenga Sales Institute. The Huizenga Sales Institute is an 8,200-square-foot facility that features an executive conference room and 16 mock sales presentation/interview rooms that have a range of recording and video conferencing capabilities. Companies seeking an effective way to train large numbers of employees at one time will benefit from the cutting-edge facilities available at The Huizenga Sales Institute.
Recruiting Talent, Internships & Mentoring
Employers actively seek Huizenga College of Business graduates. They come well prepared and eager to enter the workforce and add immediate value to your company. Throughout the year, the Huizenga College of Business partners with local and national organizations to host job fairs where your company can recruit the best and brightest future business leaders.
In addition, educational corporate partners are given first choice of intern groups before they are made available to the general public. You can match your company's needs with students eager to gain real world experience. Together, the Huizenga College of Business and your company determine the parameters for an internship program. Many of our students are hired after graduation by their corporate internship host.
Also, as you know, many corporate executives are where they are because someone took a keen interest in their potential. The mentorship program at NSU helps put leaders from your company in touch with a Huizenga Business student to establish a mentoring experience. Mentoring not only provides the satisfaction of giving something back, it also allows business professionals to shape the leaders of tomorrow.
Your company and employees can benefit from the expert speakers that come to the Huizenga College of Business. Our faculty, staff and guest lecturers practice what they preach, and know personally what it takes to make it to the top in today's ultra-competitive business world. From department meetings to company-wide retreats, our professors welcome any opportunity where they can speak with your employees, sharing their real-world insights about how to succeed in business.
