Strategic Forum Student Program
Ever since its inception the Strategic Forum South Florida Chapter has been closely aligned with Nova University’s Huizenga College of Business. Through that relationship, the chapter creates mentoring opportunities for MBA students at the University and has created scholarships that have been awarded each year.
The students participate in many of the Strategic Forum events, attend monthly meetings, and get to observe a very special brand of networking and fellowship. They are also given a chance to work with members of the chapter after each meeting to better interpret and understand what transpired during the session.
The students have formed their own Strategic Forum Student Chapter that invites top MBA candidates to participate and create their own networking activities and follow the example set by the Forum.
It provides students with an environment where they can learn from experiences of high-level business executives in areas including networking, team building, presentations, business promotion, work-life balance, personal & professional development, and community service.
It has been a very productive relationship with students seeking mentorships, advice and even career opportunities from the chapter members.
