The Executives and Entrepreneurs in Residence (EEiR) program, provides our business students with opportunities to engage with accomplished executives and entrepreneurs from the business community.

This program exemplifies the Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship's commitment to its students, as well as Nova Southeastern University'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 and classroom setting.

EEiRs 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 College of Business students, the Executives and Entrepreneurs in Residence program provides a singular experience for our students as they prepare for successful business careers.

Our Executives and Entrepreneurs in Residence

  • Are highly accomplished business leaders
  • Desire a meaningful supportive relationship with the College of Business
  • Wish to offer real-world wisdom to students as a part of their involvement with NSU
  • Are interviewed about their areas of expertise and level/interest area of students they feel they can benefit most
  • Often have time or distance limitations that would not allow them to commit to ongoing mentoring of a single student
