What aspects do you like the most about being a part of HBIA?
What would you have liked to know about HBIA when you were first applying and interviewing for it?
The aspects that I like most about being part of HBIA, is the amount of opportunities it offers. For instance, I have the opportunity to achieve my Bachelors and MBA in only four years which is almost unheard of and I am proud to say that through the Academy, I was hired as the Student Ambassador of the College of Business at NSU. I also like how HBIA introduces successful entrepreneurs which allows us to network. We are also grouped into classes with our classmates because we are all in an accelerated program, which allows us to work together and study when one another is in need. Overall, I love the fact that to continue being in HBIA, you have to continue working hard, by doing this our HBIA Directors motivate us by always providing us with useful advice and assistance with any concerns we have.
Prior to first applying and interviewing for HBIA, I honestly knew a good amount of information due to prior readings/research that I did. Though as being the first class of HBIA, I would have liked to know about our summer internship and monthly meetings. If I would have known about an internship I would have invested more time looking for one. The monthly meetings are great because they keep you updated with new information within HBIA, though when choosing your classes, it’s important to choose them at a time prior or after the meeting so that you don’t miss out on any news!
What tips do you have for students interviewing?
The tips that I have for students interviewing is don’t be shy and just be yourself. Ask questions and demonstrate your greatest qualities and achievements. Show that you really want to be in this amazing program by discussing your future plans and why you want the career path that you have chosen.
