The Black Executive & Student Training Program relies on the goodwill and support of our sponsors so that we can continue to empower our Black leaders of tomorrow.

Core Programs

In an effort to provide an efficient and effective model for our next generation of leaders, the Black Executive & Student Training Program places black professional executives in front of HBCU students to share industry knowledge, insights, and experiences. This, in turn, also brings visibility to the talent pool of educated Blacks in America.
