Community Engagement at the Zarb School

The Frank G. Zarb School of Business has made a conscientious effort to bring financial literacy and business education into the lives of students prior to entering into their secondary education academic experience and to continue that wealth of knowledge as they continue with their college career. By partnering with corporate organizations such as Capital One Bank (Money & Me, Capital One Entrepreneurship Challenge), Commerce Plaza, NASDAQ, NEFCU, Flushing Bank and U.S. Commercial Service, the Frank G. Zarb School of Business has the ability to educate students as young as fourth grade and continue that education through their college experience with the Capital One Entrepreneurship Challenge.

“These programs, in addition to several other initiatives, are providing Zarb students with real life lessons regarding today’s challenging economic climate. These partnerships provide them with direct hands-on experience and corporate networking opportunities that will support them even after they have graduated from Hofstra University,” stated Dr. Patrick Socci, Dean, Frank G. Zarb School of Business. In the upcoming academic year, the Zarb School of Business continues to expand its long history of collaboration with numerous corporate and community sponsorships for the continuous good its students and the community.

Do You Have a Strong Self-Brand?

Self-branding reflects how we want to be perceived by employers, potential employers, peers, and others. It is a major determinant of career success.

Are you looking to progress in your career or embark on a new career path? If your answer to either question is yes, then you need a strong self-brand that is distinctive and clear.

To learn more about how to improve YOUR self-brand, please join us in Melville on April 30 for an interactive session on self-branding led by Dr. Joel Evans, a distinguished professor at the Zarb School. You’ll even take a personal self-branding quiz. Don’t worry, it won’t be graded. 🙂
