About the Program
The Dean’s Business Scholars program provides high-achieving students with enrichment experiences designed to enhance their business education. These include corporate visits, conferences, exposure to undergraduate and graduate executive speaker series events, and exclusive internship and career opportunities, in addition to networking events and experiential learning collaborations with alumni and industry executives. Dean’s Business Scholars are encouraged to be leaders at Zarb and participate in a mentoring program with first-year students.
Through the Zarb School’s Executive Speaker Series, scholars gain valuable perspectives on industry and career trends from business leaders. Major corporations such as ABC TV, The Hain Celestial Group, PwC, Citigroup, GroupM, P&G, Publicis New York, Kaplan Thaler, Reebok, Moody’s Investors Service, KPMG, Capital One Bank and BDO USA, LLP have given presentations on campus.
Every semester, scholars visit local Long Island and New York City corporations. Some recent trips include Bloomberg, Google, Canon, Goldman Sachs, Nickelodeon, DDB Advertising Agency, NASDAQ, Nomura and the United Nations.
Zarb students can enter the program at three points in their undergraduate education: as first-year or transfer students, as sophomores, or as juniors.
