“Being a part of the Dean’s Business Scholars program has opened doors to so many opportunities both on and off campus. This program has exposed me to a high-quality professional atmosphere that fosters intellectual and personal growth. After shadowing Zarb alumni at Goldman Sachs, I was able to gain real insight into the business world and figure out my ultimate career goal of becoming an attorney at a corporate law firm. I have since become involved with several other organizations on campus and am constantly looking to apply the skills gained from the program into other aspects of my involvement at Hofstra.”

“I came to Hofstra as an international student and have formed a special connection with the Zarb School of Business, and the Dean’s Business Scholars program played a pivotal role. The program has provided me with exclusive opportunities and connections. Visiting corporate headquarters has given me an in-depth view of the real world of business. Some of my most memorable experiences include listening to the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York share his thoughts on the future of the economy and personally getting to know the senior vice president of 21st Century Fox at a distinguished lecture series. These experiences are priceless and will pave the way for my future success.”

"As a New Yorker, I came into this program thinking that I had already been exposed to many aspects of the business world. The Dean’s Business Scholars program has taken my experiences to another level. The Zarb School’s proximity to New York opens up so many doors to get an exclusive look into the everyday operations of Fortune 500 businesses. Not only do you see firsthand the behind-the-scenes action, but you also meet executives and network with employees during every visit. I am honored to be part of the program and a school that truly values its students and affords them every opportunity to succeed."
