NSU to Provide Business Students with Mentoring Opportunities from Leaders in the Business Community

By jdonzelli Students to Meet on Campus with Esteemed Executives & Entrepreneurs FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – There have been countless studies that show that for many students their academic performance is better when a mentor is involved. Having that one-on-one interaction allows students to bolster what they are learning in the classroom as well as learning “real-world” lessons from those in whose footsteps they hope to follow. Following that model, Nova Southeastern University is proud to announce a new program – the Executives and Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EEiR) program. This program, designed for students in NSU’s H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship, will provide students with opportunities to engage with accomplished executives and entrepreneurs from the business community. “We are really excited to see this program come to fruition,” said J. Preston Jones, D.B.A., dean of the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship. “Classroom lessons are vital to all students, but the chance to meet with successful business leaders is priceless – it helps raise our program to a new level.” Participants of the EEiR program will visit NSU’s Huizenga Business School on its main campus throughout the academic year attending prescheduled meetings and events with students.

NSU Men’s Hoops Tabbed Third in Sunshine State Conference Preseason Poll

By wlchrist If you want to correctly pick the order of finish in the 2014-15 Sunshine State Conference men’s basketball race, you might first consider taking out an ad in your local newspaper: “Wanted! Soothsayers, Tarot Card Readers, Mediums, Psychics, Time Travelers and others proficient at predicting the future. Crystal Balls Recommended but not Required!” Nine SSC head coaches recently took a stab at the prophesy game and here’s what they saw for the 2014-15 league race (first place votes in parentheses): 1. Florida Southern: (7) 63 points 2. Barry: (2) 57 3. Nova Southeastern: 47 4. Florida Tech: 31 4. Tampa: 31 6. Saint Leo: 30 7. Eckerd: 22 7. Rollins: 22 9. Lynn: 21 NSU head coach Gary Tuell thought about drawing nine names from a hat. Instead, he dug into attic boxes to find a childhood toy, the Magic 8 Ball, before submitting his ballot. “Almost 70 percent of the starters from the 2013-14 season return in our league,” Tuell notes. “That’s an extraordinarily high number. Typically the teams with four or five returning starters would be ranked highest in any preseason poll. But many teams with four or five returning starters also signed some terrific players. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a lot of guys who started last year …read more Source:: NSU News       ...

Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration at Huizenga Business School

By wlchrist The Graduate Student Business Organization (GBSA) at the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business & Entrepreneurship, celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting a tasting of foods from various countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, including Cuba, Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, and Peru. The food was prepared and served by people from local restaurants. Albert Williams, Ph.D., academic faculty advisor for GBSA and originally from Belize in Central America, provided original Latin and Caribbean solos on his Carlos Santana PRS guitar. In addition, because the event took place on the first week of the fall term for MBA students, GBSA invited other business student groups to participate which allowed the returning MBA students and others the opportunity to see what the student groups at HSBE were doing and how to become more involved. Student groups participating included Strategic Forum (SF), American Marketing Association (AMA), Masters in International Business Association (MIBAA), and Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). The key organizers from GBSA for this event were student leaders Bridget Guerrero (project leader), Marie Ang, Rafael Brazon-Di Fata, and Chantell Arne. <img …read more Source:: NSU News       ...
